Perhaps you have had a big change in circumstances like suddenly having to work from home, a relationship break up, a house move, a new baby or the loss of a loved one. Maybe you have become overwhelmed by your own home or just need a hand getting your wardrobe or paperwork in order.
No matter the size of the project, my goal is always the same:
To reduce your stress, save you time and money
and make you fall in love with the place that is most important to you, your home.
We will work together with a holistic approach to sort through everything and decide what can be binned, donated/sold and kept. Once we know what is staying, I will categorise and organise it for you, providing new inspiration and ideas and show you how to maintain it and keep it looking beautiful.

Who is Lara Lou?
I have been professionally organising my whole life. My parents tell stories of how they would hear furniture moving about in the house at night, and wake to find rooms transformed, as if by magic.
Even as a very young girl, I would happily spend weekend afternoons organising the kitchen cupboards
and my entire family’s wardrobes.
(There were 6 of us!)
With more than 25 house moves under my belt (some of which were international), years spent teaching and a busy family of my own, I have gained a wealth of knowledge and experience.
I honestly have never encountered a space that I could not organise!
I truly believe that an organised home is the beginning of an organised life.
Helping others with compassion and care is at the heart of everything I do.
We live in a world that seems to become busier and more stressful every year. With the ease of online shopping and the bombardment of advertising constantly trying to convince us that we need more and more stuff, it has become easier than ever to accumulate mountains of things that we don’t use or need.
Having lived in everything from huge houses to tiny apartments, I can honestly say that you will be amazed at how much you can truly live without and how cathartic and liberating it is to let go of the unnecessary clutter in your life.
"Absolutely brilliant! Can’t thank her enough. Even managed to talk the other half into getting rid of things he’s not let go of for years! Lara’s even showed me a fabulous way of folding all the clothes (especially kids). Would gladly have her back to organise more of the house."
"Lara has now completed a number of key projects for my brother and, in doing so, has transformed an unapologetic bachelor pad into a beautiful home. She has a wonderful eye for the possibilities offered in a room’s architecture, and has created a number of clever and practical storage solutions. Her ability to blend old with new and quickly identify the upcycling potential of existing furniture is amazing (and great for the budget). She even managed to source and refurbish a statement unit to beautifully finish one of the rooms. Lara’s a delight to work with. She delivers on the brief, on budget and I would have no hesitation in recommending her work."
"I was feeling low and needed help. My daughter introduced me to Lara. What a ray of sunshine she is with lots of great ideas. She has helped me organise my wardrobe, drawers and cupboards in my bedroom. You have to meet such a friendly caring person who brightened up my day. She has made me feel so good! Get the feeling she’s given me, don’t delay just go for it. Best thing I did .
Thank you Lara xx"
