My name is Sarah Giller Nelson and I am organized. I experience a sense of calm when I walk into well-ordered spaces. I enjoy feeling unencumbered. I always know where to find my keys.
As a busy Chicago mom, I recognize the challenges of sharing a small urban home with a curious toddler, an energetic preschooler, and a gadget-loving husband. Knowing how to sift through, sort out, and organize all the “stuff” a household needs comes naturally to me, and is a skill that I draw upon all the time.
Before becoming a professional organizer, I spent 15 years organizing art exhibitions and teaching at the Art Institute of Chicago, Spertus Museum, and the Donald Young Gallery. I also co-authored Designing The Good Life (University Press of Florida, 2007), an architecture book about mid-century modernism in my native Miami. For me, curating and organizing are essentially the same process: gathering information, determining what belongs and what does not, defining categories, and arranging objects in a logical, memorable manner.
As a professional home organizer, I understand how the artful fine tuning of details can make a difference between chaos and calm. I take the time to carefully evaluate each client’s habits and needs, and then design a comprehensive organizational plan to create beautiful, well-functioning spaces. My hands-on organizing sessions put the plan into action. The results are dramatic and inspiring.
