Making room for your life
Hello, I’m Monika.
After experiencing how much clarity and peace applying the lessons of Marie Kondo's The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up can bring to one’s life, I was inspired to help others en-lighten themselves a little bit through decluttering and organizing their homes.
I trained with Marie Kondo and her team to become Certified to teach the KonMari method to others. I'm Tennessee's first KonMari Consultant. I'm based in Knoxville, Tennessee and available for travel for workshops and in-home sessions.
I'm coming to KonMari consulting from a 12 year career as an architect. For my KonMari clients I also design storage solutions, weigh renovation options, or assess a potential home purchase.

Clearing the space in which you live is the first step towards living with a clearer heart and mind. Guided KonMari sessions are for those who see the value in having expert assistance that ensures your KonMari journey will take less time, be more successful, and way more fun.
I will bring my experience, training, and sense of humor as you make your way through the KonMari process, category by category.
This is a once-in-a-lifetime process that helps you get and stay organized.
If you're interested in starting on your journey or simply would like to learn more, sign up for a free phone or FaceTime consultation.
SPEAKING / WORKSHOPS
I have witnessed the transformative power of KonMari in my own life and in the homes and lives of my clients. This is the best thing I have done with my life and I'm excited to talk about it!
Using humor, philosophy, and real life examples I will show you how to turn what has been considered a chore into a festival of personal growth that reaches far beyond your t-shirt drawer, even if it had it's humble begings there.
DESIGN FOR THE PEOPLE
Are you thinking about renovating a part of your home, but weren’t planning to hire a full time architect?
Let me help you think through your ideas and propose something that works for you and makes sense for the home. We’ll start with an on-site design consultation where we’ll discuss some options. I can provide sketches or a quick 3d model to help you visualize the re-configured space. We’ll let your contractor handle the rest.
I chose to work with Monika because she brings the perspective of an architect to the work. By doing the organization first, I know we leveraged the existing space to its fullest potential before starting on the design of built-ins or considering a renovation.
Going through the KonMari process with Bower & Bird has radically changed the way that I view my relationship to "stuff." I am more thoughtful about the things I own, and I am more intentional about making my life into what I want it to be.
Coming from someone who has zero organizational skills, everything in our house now has a place thanks to Bower & Bird. Instead of hunting for matching socks, a lid to a container or a contact for my right eye, there is more precious time available to spend with my family and to actually enjoy my cup of coffee in the morning.
This has truly been a life changing experience to work with Monika and learn from her, and find a new view on material thing and the energy of my house.
