• AbOUT ME

    Welcome to Light Style Space!

    I'm Natasha, a declutterer and personal organiser. I can help you change your relationship with stuff and give ideas on how to live with less. I provide practical advice on how to say goodbye to things. The simpler life is, the easier it is to be content.

     

    During our sessions, I'll get personal! I’ll ask you about your denim collection, your sock drawer, and we'll figure out how to decide what needs to go and what can stay.

     

    I aim to donate, recycle or sell your unwanted things and pledge to use landfill only as a last resort. Occasionally, I am able to share the profits of any sales with you or with charity.

  • How i can help you

    Do any of the following situations ring true with you?

    1

    Cluttered home

    So many of us simply have too much stuff. If you're thinking it's about time some of your belongings found a new home, talk to me and I'll help you get started.

    2

    Moving house

    A great time to declutter is when you're moving house, especially if you're downsizing. I work with people who don't want to take all their clutter with them. Talk to me and we'll work towards only taking with you the things you love.

    3

    Spare room

    You have a spare room but it's the dumping ground for everything you don't have a space for. You want to rent it out, or simply have that space back. Talk to me and we'll work methodically through everything in it and have it looking gorgeous.

    Big project

    If you're after my house or office clearance services, I will work with you to meet a deadline. I take things

    away to be recycled or sold. Any profits will be shared with you.

    What do my clients say?

    House clearance

    Giulia, May 2017

    "Natasha is strategic, down-to-earth, speedy, empathetic and efficient. She is also fun. I needed support clearing my great uncle's house after he had died leaving his property chockablock and me feeling rather overwhelmed. Natasha came over and helped me plan how best to get rid of everything (auction, carboot, sell online, dump). Within hours I trusted her with her own set of keys and felt I could delegate much of the decision-making to her. She makes sensible decisions, stays in touch, and boosts morale which is much needed when the task at hand is both physically and emotionally exhausting."

    Spare room

    Jo, April 2017

    "When my mother died I cleared her house bringing more possessions into my home. I always became anxious on entering one room of my flat as it had become a cluttered storage space. Natasha has helped to organise my daily living space and has been a great help sorting through items to which I am emotionally attached. It is such a relief to get rid of everything she takes

    away. Due to my lack of time this is an ongoing project and I look forward to finally having the room back."

     

    Downsizing

    Liz, March 2017

    Liz's house is a beautiful family home but now wants to downsize. I've worked with Liz over a few months, looking into options to find new homes for all the things that need to find a new home. The photo is of a full set of 48 volumes of the Encyclopaedia Britannica from 1953, which we donated to a very happy National Trust. We are currently talking to auction houses about rehoming some furniture.

    "Thank you so much for coming round yesterday and taking so many items away. It has quite re-energised me!"

    Simple living

    Lamia, May 2016

    "When I approached Natasha, I was FINALLY preparing to move into my first home. I’d spent nearly 2 years re-designing and refurbishing the place, and was so excited to live in it - but it was clear in my mind that I didn’t want to clutter up all that beautiful, hard work with stuff! I’d also purposely designed the home to have less storage space, and more objects out in the open, so “less and more meaningful” was my motto. After 10 years of living in London just accumulating things, I didn’t want to just send it all to landfill - being wasteful made me feel guilty. It felt so good to know that what I was giving up might be of use to someone else. The process was freeing. And it was a bonus to get back a bit of money to spend on a celebratory moving-in dinner!"

    Overflowing flat

    Lindsey, January 2017

    "I live in a tiny attic flat, which was overflowing with clothes, books, paperwork, magazines, photographs, memorabilia and jewellery. Tash arrived and set about transforming it, helping me to get rid of the excess. She was very methodical, starting with the clothes which were placed on the bed and sorted through. She encouraged me to sell the good stuff that I hadn't worn for ages, give some things away to friends and take the rest to charity. The books and CDs were sorted through, about half went to charity and the rest were put back in order on the shelves. Now it looks great. What's more, I've kept it like that."

    Messy wardrobe

    Iona, August 2017

    "In terms of my relationship with clutter now - my house is pretty tidy at the mo, and I hope to stay minimalist when I move house. I am not missing any of the stuff Natasha helped me get rid of, and I'm enjoying having a wardrobe that isn't bursting at the seams. So funny, I can't even remember what the Alice Edwards dress is! I love how you have sold it on and taken care of it, I can rest in the knowledge that it all isn't landfill now."

    Declutter diaries

    Take a look at my blog: declutter diaries. It started as updates on progress of my passion for selling things on Ebay, when I first started selling stuff online, went on to be a bit green and eco-minded, and is now about decluttering and how it's changing my life, and hopefully yours.
