I recently dropped by the extremely welcoming and calming home of Mel Chambers, a friend in North Berwick who has set up a business called ‘Calm Your Clutter‘.Mel is a mother of five children, some have left home to study by now, but even so her home has always had to house seven people and all their stuff. So understandably she has acquired a lifetime’s experience of managing other peoples clutter.‘I have learnt the hard way that if you do not need it, bin it or give it away’ Mel shares. When her children are all at home, there are seven bodies milling around, plus their friends, so there simply is not room for superfluous pieces of furniture or unwanted toys.‘Empty corners are a godsend’ Mel believes and the laundry is one of the most important rooms of the house, so it is beautifully decorated.She has successfully personalised her recently bought, beautiful new build home from the Walker Group. ‘I have been able to do exactly what I want, the house was a blank canvas when we bought it’ she shares.She has turned her own bedroom into a Courcheval style log cabin – to compensate for all the holidays to Courcheval I could not go on while I was busy bringing up five children’ she quips!Mel has set up a business helping others achieve an equally serene environment. Aided by her delightful assistant, Amber the Cavapoo – Mel applies the principles of Feng Shui to bring calm to your clutter chaos.
‘Things’ and ‘stuff’ can become overwhelming: making decisions about personal possessions is easy to delay, however, the joy of clear and organised space is essential to a calm and peaceful life.
She uses the Feng Shui Bagua map to help you to arrange rooms with care and control: keep your love & relationships flowing happily by ensuring the top right hand corner of each room is in order. Doing an extension? Check with Mel that the energy of your home will remain aligned correctly or improved even. Or do you want to boost your bank balance?
