Have a lot of Stuff? AT:LA Cure Starts Monday!


While there are quite a few methods for reducing clutter and making your space more liveable --


(One of my absolute favorites is Clearing your Clutter with Feng Shui by Karen Kingston. A very simple book that cuts right through all the reasons we hang on to things and motivates a lot of tossing. You can buy it used here for $2.25. Get it. Seriously, it will change your life.)




An option that involves hand holding and a whole community is the Apartment Therapy Cure. It's 8 steps to a better home culminating in a soiree where you invite your friends over to partake in the glory. It also involves a lot of purging, but also goes into decor and creating your own inspiration banks. This year the Cure is happening in each of the sites separately so LA has it's own version that yours truly will be manning.


I'm really looking forward to it because I have always (ALWAYS) loved spaces and have dedicated much thought, time, and energy into how to make spaces more beautiful, comfortable and simple. I can't wait to see before and afters. And from experience these things are MUCH easier when you have some company. So if you've been meaning to clean out, update, or just rearrange, (and live in LA, San Diego or anywhere considered to be the Southwest) jump on over and join me, it starts monday. You can buy the book here to get started.

PS: Here's an After from last year:

Don't forget--you can inspire by starting with your stuff! You can never underestimate the power of example...
