Julia Barker is Malta’s first and only KonMari consultant in training.
Coming from London where she worked in the environmental education sector, she was inspired to make decluttering and organisation her career after successfully completing the KonMari process in her own family home. A long-running love of good design and a deep interest in the sustainability of our home spaces complemented this move perfectly.
When starting out in her career as a tidying consultant, Julia was inspired by the positive aesthetic changes that were sparked in her and her clients’ homes. As her practice has developed, she’s found the most wonderful part of her work to be seeing the mindset of her clients move towards one of lower consumption and increased repurposing of loved items.
Julia’s tidying lessons involve working first with clients on their vision for the ideal life and home. After using a welcoming ritual to open the space to being tidied, Julia then coaches her clients to hone their sense of personal style and joy as they work through each item in their home. Identifying creative ways to store and style possessions with her clients means that they quickly find increased mental and physical space to pursue their own creative interests more fully.
