Editor’s Choice Space by Lily
Clearing clutter may seem like an impossible dream to some people, but it’s one that can come true with Space by Lily. This friendly, expert decluttering service helps people to restore order to their possessions and so bring a sense of tranquillity into their lives.
Clutter may start as simply as getting a little behind with the tidying up or be the result of a trauma such as an illness or bereavement which puts daily routines on hold. What starts as a little neglect or distraction can build up into a mess so overwhelming people can’t bring themselves to tackle it, whether it is a cupboard in chaos, a roomful of junk or a whole house out of hand.
Space by Lily owner Lily Shervington helps people to organise, rationalise and store their things so they are easily accessible. Any space which makes someone feel uncomfortable in any way can be rationalised, large or small. People’s property once again becomes accessible and a source of pleasure.
“Decluttering is something I do to help people feel calmer within themselves,” says Lily, “And it’s not about them having to throw lots of things away!
“Once we make a start, the client often feels able to go ahead and do more themselves between my visits. It changes their outlook and empowers them.”
