Do you need some more joy-sparking in your life?
recently announced it's offering celebrity organizer Marie Kondo's to residents of its five New York City properties. The real-estate company is partnering with the first "certified KonMari consultants," who will help residents declutter based on the Japanese values Kondo outlined in her international bestsellers, "The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up and Spark Joy."
In the method, if one's belongings no longer "spark joy," they are acknowledged for their service and thanked before being discarded. In a first-of-its-kind partnership, residents of Instrata’s lifestyle rental properties in Hell’s Kitchen, NoMad (above), Gramercy, Park Slope and Brooklyn Heights will have special access to KonMari Consultants who "have undergone rigorous training in the KonMari Method, including 50 hours of practice sessions," according to a press release.
The consultants "will conduct one or more five-hour private organizing sessions for individual Instrata residents, helping the residents identify what they value in life. While doing so, they will coach and support the residents to completely organize the home, creating the residents’ ideal space."
"The KonMari Method has helped countless practitioners around the world to reexamine, refocus and restructure their lives through the mental and emotional journey of tidying," KonMari Media spokeswoman Kazuma Yamauchi said. "We believe strongly in the intrinsic value of this process, particularly for those of us leading fast-paced lives in urban centers such as New York City, where the demands of day-to-day life leave us little time to examine some of the most central aspects of our day: our possessions."
Instrata's currently available Manhattan rentals start at $3,700 but if you ask us, the convenience of having a personal organizer on call is practically priceless.
