OUTCOME:Gave a newly married couple more time to focus on their family and professional lives by coordinating a move from multiple households (and off-site storage), to their dream home.
CHALLENGE:Both busy professionals, each had children from prior marriages, and were expecting a new baby when they called Julie Morgenstern Enterprises. Two years after getting married, they were still dividing their time and stuff between three different residences – his home in the country, her apartment, and a house they’d rented together – and felt in a constant state of disorder. They had too many of some household items, not enough of others, and had a hard time keeping track of what was where. The couple was eager to settle in and set up new up new systems to create a peaceful, organized environment before their baby was born.
PROCESS:We designed a plan that prescribed an optimal flow in their new home, including the suggested best use of each space in the house (down to the built-in cabinets). We also did a thorough inventory of all of the couple’s possessions (in their three current residencies and storage facilities), orchestrated all the packing, and coordinated their move to synchronize with the completion of renovations in their new house. Within 24 hours of the moving truck’s arrival, every single box was unpacked. Once every room and closet was set up, we created a household binder to centralize household functions all in one place and trained household staff, including a housekeeper, on the new systems we designed.
