Episode 8: Decluttering in the Corona Era (2020)
This Corona era is a weird time. It's unsettling, scary....and also fascinating. It's also a great opportunity to reflect. Not just on our lives and how we currently live, but how we'd like to live. It's a time to look at our homes.....make time to review our 'stuff' and declutter everything we can. This will not only make our homes feel fantastic but it will also free us to explode into life when these restrictions are lifted and tackle life with everything we've got!
I discuss 8 decluttering tips and lessons to help you make the most out of this time. After way more than a decade doing the decluttering 'thing' I have definitely learnt a thing or two!
If you're based in Sydney and you need help decluttering your home, guess what! I can help! Yep - I LOVE helping people declutter the hell out of their home! In a non-judgey, productive and even, fun session, we'll get through a pretty impressive area. And for listeners, there'll be a special offer available from https://www.declutteringqueen.com.au/single-post/2020/04/25/Simplifying-life-in-the-Corona-virus-era
Episode 7: Karen Kertesz from Emerald Space talks about Feng Shui
Ever wanted to know more about feng shui? It's a fascinating area of the interiors world and Karen Kertesz from Emerald Space is so informative and charming - I just loved interviewing her! So much so, that I'll get her back for more!
In today's episode, she provides a number of different tips that you can easily incorporate today into your home to help improve the chi in your space. For eg, in the bedroom, you might add warm colours that mean 'life' and to help you be more clear headed, declutter the things from your bedsides and chests of drawers!
And the added benefit is that often by improving the feng shui in one area of our lives, it's like a domino effect and trickles down improving other facets too! How fab is that!
I hope you enjoy listening to her as much as I did!
