Q&A with Sarah Shanahan
How would you describe your creative style?
I love warm, Scandi style minimalist interiors. Organised of course!
What kind of equipment do you use?
A varied range of organising tools.
Can you tell us why the ‘Organise Me’ theme resonates with you?
Hosting this week’s theme is a huge honour for me as my Instagram feed is carefully curated with the aim to inspire others to get organised and restore calm back into their homes and lives. I can't wait!
What are your top 5 tips for staying organised?
Have a vision for how you want the space to be, if you can visualise it you are more likely to achieve it.
Pick a small area to declutter first to get you started, so you can see instant results and therefore be more likely to keep going.
Make a pile of 'keep' 'maybe' 'donate' and 'toss'
Ask yourself...'do I need it, love it, use it?' If not let it go! Or put simply, 'does it spark joy?' ( thanks Marie Kondo!)
Practise tidying up at the end of each day, everything needs a home and needs to be returned to its home at the end of every day.
Most importantly - ENJOY YOUR POSSESSIONS!
Can you share a few of your favourite images you have created and why you love them?
To remind us all that there is beauty and joy in the simple things
A lot of my images on my Instagram feed are flatlays that I have created, I love telling a little story through a flatlay
I unpack and install a lot of kitchens in my job and I want to portray what I do in a simple joyful image.
