Tips on how to deal with clutter…

1. Commit to do something about it – this is an important first step.

2. Set a goal for your room – plan the space to serve you and how you want to live.

3. Start small – begin with a manageable project such as a junk drawer or bookshelf.

4. Edit items – keep only things which serve your goal for the space.

5. Think green – items you no longer need can be donated or sold.

6. Schedule time to organize – even 20 minutes a day will go a long way.

If you feel overwhelmed, frustrated, or simply don’t have enough time to tackle clutter on your own, a Professional Organizer can help.


Chris at ArtWorkable Interiors has greatly improved my health during work. Having been partially paralyzed since 1987 the odds were against me to be sitting in front of a computer for more than 10 hours a day. I have been in pain for more than two years, from neck to back and even my leg. Chris was recommended by my Chiropractor so I called him in to do an ergonomic assessment on me and my workplace. He was very knowledgeable and detailed with his assessment.

He took photographs, recommended new furniture, sitting positions, devices and even convinced me to follow a workplace health application that pushes me to get up and move every hour. Since his assessment my work has purchased me a new desk, a headset and gel wrist protectors and as I mentioned earlier, my health has improved greatly. I am no longer in pain and the stiffness has subsided. I would recommend Chris to anyone having physical discomfort at their work place.

This master bedroom is in the process of being converted to a Japanese retreat.  The white cherry blossom tree adds the desired view of nature.  Stay tuned for the finished reveal.

Inspired by the Wheelwell Motel from the movie Cars, this little boy enjoys an 8×12 backdrop for his McQueen adventures


Originally this small cottage bathroom had a thermostat featured opposite the wall mirror.  The autumn path to a shimmering lake camouflages the dial and improves the view when getting ready in the morning.


Jupiter inspired planet for a little boy’s room that included mobiles, and 8 other planets that my or may not include Pluto!

Santa needed a way into this young family’s home, so this traffic area  of the living room opposite the sofa was a great spot for a fireplace.  An electrician was asked to place an outlet perfectly for the flickering fire light.   The mantle was updated in 2014, but mural and flicker fire are doing well years later.

This all white apartment kitchen was in need of excitement.  The tenant’s collection of blue and white dishes, and snowmen, were the inspiration for the blue faux tile backsplash.  The custom corner shelf was added for special displays.


This little boy had an eye for space.  The room’s ceiling and upper walls were covered in stars and all the hand painted planets (including Pluto!) circled the sun “light”.  The four foot high rocket ship near a desert plateau.

This young girl’s room was set on a back deck with harbour (see below) and butterfly views.  The closet area made a nice little cottage with a magnetic painted window for hanging prized art without pinholes.
