A bit about The Pretty Neat Company

Welcome to The Pretty Neat Company's first post! I am Kiersten and I LOVE to organize and decorate. I am obsessed with finding ways to make life easier when it comes to running your household. I feel that every aspect of your life can function easily if the correct system is in place. I have been a kitchen designer for several years for our family owned cabinet company and am married to a residential builder who owns his own construction business. I have been organizing and decorating people's homes for years and have been told more times than I can count that this is what I should do, "officially". There are many amazing designers and many creative organizers in their fields and what has always been missing, in my opinion, is merging those two aspects to make a space not only gorgeous but also function for you. I call it "Decorating for the way you live". I can not decorate without organizing and vice versa and have decided to offer my unique approach to Design and Organization through The Pretty Neat Company.

I am the mother of two amazing boys and will understand all your kiddy issues. Your problems with craft supplies, homework and artwork piling up, pictures that you really want to scrapbook someday, messes in closets, dirty socks by the back door, wii remotes on the floor--none of it will scare me!

I also have experienced the challenges that come to your home when you are self employed or run any aspect of your business from your home. That personal experience helps me tackle any business, whether it's in your home or in a large office. My experience is broad, from organizing mortgage companies with their massive amounts of paper and systems that are legally mandated to a computer consultant's home office where he was buried in cords and needed simple sorting solutions to find the largest harddrive or the smallest USB plug.

I hope you enjoy my blog! I have created it for inspiration, information and a visual resource of my work! Whether you are in the NorthWest and are checking me out or in the Greater Orlando area and are considering hiring The Pretty Neat Company to help you create better spaces in your home, I hope you enjoy what I have shared on my blog and would love to hear from you!
