HOW DOES KONMARI WORK?
KonMari works because it is simple! Unlike traditional organization, where someone organizes your space for you, KonMari Consultants help you transform yourself into an organized person—no matter how impossible that idea might seem. In the process of working together your home is decluttered, everything finds its place, and you take these skills with you for the rest of your life.
The KonMari process works to hone your sense of joy and boosts your intuition. After we have completed the categories of clothes, books, papers, miscellaneous, and sentimental; many of my clients have gone on to declutter and make room for new “life situations” with very joy-sparking results. The life-changing magic goes far beyond your t-shirt drawer even if it had its humble beginnings there.
THE NAME - WHY PUT A [BOWER] BIRD ON IT?
I named my company Bower & Bird because Bowerbirds seem to understand the principles of design and KonMari better than most humans and without—I’m just assuming here--having read any of Marie Kondo’s books.
In addition to building incredible structures, these amazing creatures and surround themselves with objects they love, arrange them by type and color, and then tend to them with care. They don’t worry if you think they have too many beetles’ wings or that their cherished bottle cap is trash, perhaps even your trash. If they love it, they keep it!
That’s what I want my clients to see about KonMari. It’s not about creating a particular aesthetic or having “less.” It’s about creating a space that’s more you.
