I help busy women simplify home and work and build an essentialist life. If you’re not thriving in your spaces, let’s make it happen.

Hi, I'm Kelly.

I’m a home and lifestyle design coach helping people live simply and beautifully while deeply respecting nature and our planet. I believe our environments play a huge role in a thriving, healthy life and abundant life. But that doesn't mean we have to do an expensive remodel and it doesn’t mean we have to go to extreme minimalism.

Instead, I teach essentialism.

I follow Greg McKeown’s writings in his book,金博宝188体育app下载, which tells us to cut out non-essentials in pursuit of a more intentional life, focusing on depth and quality over breadth and unfocused quantity.

金博宝188体育app下载本质主义在国内包括清除,repurposing things you already own and designing your home so that it’s functional, beautiful, meaningful, and supports you and your goals. It's a sustainable and affordable way to design a beautiful space that helps you live well.

My story…

About 8 or 9 years ago I was dealing with anxiety that was becoming overwhelming and interfering in life. Though I had an amazing job and was doing "all the things" I was being held back from the life I really wanted to live. And one of the things that was holding me back - or at least not helping me move forward - was my home. I had accumulated lots of stuff and put a lot of emphasis on having the "right" furniture, decor, clothing and stuff in general. But it wasn't a place that gave me comfort. So I started essentializing my life and my home. It worked. I curbed my anxiety, gained clarity on how to pursue my dreams and gained time to actually pursue them! My health improved. I gained the physical, mental and emotional space to attract more abundance into my life. It was truly transformational. I took note of the steps I made and now teach them to others so that they can design a simple, free and abundant home and life as well!

Kelly was just what we needed. She managed to see the potential of our little space and odd sort of items we treasured, to make them work again after many years of just being "put there". She was 'spot-on' with colour to link everything and 'refreshed' our home beautifully. Her fees are absolutely reasonable and I will be hiring her again when we move to the next stage of the renewal of our small home.

I had such a wonderful experience with Kelly. She has an amazing eye and is extremely talented at her craft. She also managed to accommodate my budget concerns and found so many fabulous pieces for my spare bedroom which guests love staying in now. Kelly listened to my style preferences and nailed it with each of her recommendations and I was so happy with her services I hired her to redo my master bedroom as well. I will certainly be using her for our decorating projects in the future and highly recommend you do too. Thank you Kelly!

Kelly has been a great help to me as I try to update an old Victorian home. I have years of history with the home and want totally fresh new looks without changing anything! Hahah -somehow Kelly helped me find the balance and make a beautiful comfortable space that feels just right. Kelly helped me move things along at a pace that worked for me and acted as a sounding board while I talked through ideas. I am looking forward to many more projects with Kelly.
