I'll be your critic, your downsizer, your organizer, your rump shaker. I'll tidy your chaos pronto. My name is Brooke Milton. I have long subscribed to the ancient proverb that “cleanliness is next to godliness.” Reveal your messy side, I’ll devise a system to get you organized, and you'll stay that way. I have an enormous appetite for eradicating clutter and revamping basements, closets, garages, kitchens, pantries and offices. I’m a neat freak, to say the least, and you can ask any family member, friend or past client about my obsession, and they'll fervently vouch for my decluttering talents. The mania started when I was wee, as I wasn’t your average toddler. Yes, I was into Barbie and Care Bears, but I was also fanatical about maintaining a neat and orderly bedroom. Everything had its place, and not one stuffed animal or pillow on my bed looked askew. It didn’t take long before I started organizing my parents’ stuff. In short, I caught the bug at a young age and have been living and breathing it ever since. I like to think that I contribute my fair share to an often disorganized and cluttered world by making very good use of my flair for arranging, folding and tossing. When I work with a client, the mandate is to dump the junk. However, it’s not that easy. A lot of people have separation anxiety and can’t muster the courage to part with stacks of unread magazines, boxes of trinkets, excess toys, unused kitchen accoutrements or piles of old clothes. That's where I come in!
Whether you're moving or just trying to simplify your life, I'm your girl. I create customized plans for my clients. Everyone's decluttering journey is different, and there's no one-size-fits-all approach.
I provide that one-on-one attention to get the job done – one drawer, box or pile at a time. I'll take on any home or office project. Also know that decluttering is just as much about the emotional and mental clutter as it is about the physical clutter. It's a therapeutic process, and I'm by your side the whole way.
Kitchens. Pantries. Playrooms. Offices. Basements. Closets. Crawlspaces. Garages. You name it. I'll design a system and leave you with the tools to maintain it.
My zest for revamping a home or office extends far beyond organization. I can provide the finishing touches with paint selection, art installation, furniture purchasing and reconfiguration, spatial planning and more.
The Duchess of Declutter offers custom woodwork creations and installations via "made by jbm." My husband and I love to renovate and design new spaces. Some of my decluttering and organizing projects have evolved into redesigning spaces and creating custom woodwork solutions for clients.
We can build accent walls, cabinetry, built-ins, desks, mantels, tables, cubby systems, benches, mudrooms and shelving.
I'll make your home photo-ready and show-ready. I work with realtors all over to ensure the most desirable aspects of each space are highlighted. I know what buyers need to see and how to make it happen.
If you’re planning a move, you can avoid succumbing to a pack attack by packing smartly. Your cardboard boxes are not a closet. I'll pack and unpack your belongings and handle all aspects of your move so you transition seamlessly.
