I have some problems, and as a psychotherapist, that’s no laughing matter! My problems? Piles of stuff, typically paper. I was pretty good at hiding the clutter, and yet I was wasting time always looking for something. Enter Lauren Edmonds - with a plan, patience and grace! ! I have worked with other organizers before, and nothing “stuck” with me until I worked with her. Why? Lauren is so patient, kind, non-shaming (a huge plus in the therapy world), and expertly skilled in the profession of organizing. I went through mounds of papers, pamphlets, periodicals and plain old scribbled ideas, and threw out pounds of out-dated and unused stuff. Lauren’s guidance and great sense of humor (I mean - we’ve got to laugh when I hold up an article from 1993 - right?) gave me the gentle push I needed to streamline my office. I was so pleased with her expertise that I hired her to come to my home and help me declutter my kitchen…and let go of the 5 year old chipotle spice that smelled more like a plastic bag than a flavoring. Thank you Lauren! I’ll be calling you soon.

Lauren with The Tailored Nook truly is an expert in her field! Her mind is wired for organization, and she has the capability to throw a little decorating in as well. I love what she has done with my home, I know that there is a place for everything which keeps things tidy and neat.
Upon realizing that I had more things than space for those things, I knew that I needed help to get my home in order. Lauren has a niche for finding ways to organize rooms and spaces that are functional as well as appealing. As a mom of 2 little ones herself she understands that things will be taken out and put back all around the house a million times a day. She helped me to find a great way to organize my kids playroom that has allowed me to teach my children how and where to put things to keep a little order.
I consider myself to be a fairly organized person. However, I needed the help to find homes for everything. Lauren helped me to put a system in place that is easy for me to keep up with on a daily basis!
When I first moved into my new home the anxiety set in. I was newly married and was taking on the large and overwhelming task of combining two separate lives, both of which were full of many material items that we had each collected over the years. I had no idea where to even begin. Our new home was a quaint 1100 square feet and as you can imagine storage space was not easy to come by. Finding a spot for each and every one of our belongings was a chore in itself, let alone making it look organized and presentable. Luckily, this is right when I found The Tailored Nook. Lauren was so helpful and kind. She took my messy, cluttered, unorganized mountain of, for lack of a better word, crap, and turned my house into an organized paradise. Each item was neatly tucked away in its proper location, she paid attention to every little detail both big and small, from the way the cans were stacked in the pantry where every label could be visibly read, to my closet where everything was organized by season and then again by category. Lauren tailored each and every organization detail to meet my needs and it not only looked amazing but was also very FUNCTIONAL. Before Lauren came in and worked her magic, I was an anxious ball of a human who would dread going home to her chaotic mess of a house after work. Now I can finally say that I am happy to return home after a long day at the office and relax in my tidy little home. A place that used to bring me so much angst became my happy, safe space and I can’t thank The Tailored Nook enough for helping me achieve that.
