Jean Kidd, CCE, MA
I combine my experience and creativity with your input to turn your space into a room you'll love! Please get in touch and let’s talk.
I launched a professional organizing business, idealORDER Organizing Solutions in 2004. I often noticed that as people emerged from under their clutter or experienced more organization and order, they began to seek other changes related to the aesthetics of their living or work space.
My post-graduate work in Human Development with an emphasis on sensory perception has allowed me insight as to the importance of how a room feels in addition to how it looks. As a Certified Color Expert (CCE), I'm skilled in helping clients become aware of the emotion that color can illicit as well.
So I’m inspired to now offer a focus on interior redesign to help people makeover their space with what they already own and truly love.
I'm no stranger to challenging interior projects, having single-handedly restored a three-story 1927 home and designed and managed major renovation and decorating projects in my own homes and those of clients. I love to hang out in decor fabric stores, and unique furniture/decor shops. The thrill of the hunt for unique pieces for my clients brings me to places ranging from mega-twice-a-year-outdoor collectible markets to
artisan shops tucked away in warehouse
But it’s not just about finding. It’s about treasuring, reusing and/or recreating your items by giving them a special place or function in your home. I call it "authentic home styling.”
