Apartment Therapy is, in part, a community of design-savvy do-it-yourselfers. But for those of you who crave a little extra support when it comes to sprucing up your space, you can call on one of our own: Boston blogger Kyle Freeman! Kyle's business, Cloud 9 Organize & Redesign, provides affordable design support for real people and real spaces, with an emphasis on using what people already own to transform their spaces.
Whether she's helping you rearrange your living room or organize your craft space, Kyle always starts with what you already have, scouring drawers, cabinets, closets, basements and attics for objects that she can repurpose in a novel way. After working with what you have, it might be clear that you do need additional pieces (e.g. new couch, curtains, storage etc.). Cloud 9 then helps you make smart design decisions for your purchases. In addition to hands-on redesign — also known as one-day decorating — and organizing support, Kyle rounds out her menu of services with color consulting, space planning, artwork arrangements, and general consulting.
Some of you have seen Kyle's colorful home and her Boston-based business has been featured twice in the Boston Globe Sunday Magazine, in Lola Magazine and soon to be featured in the Spring/Summer 2010 issue of Better Homes and Garden's Decorating Magazine! Check out Kyle's Apartment Therapy house tour here.
In addition to blogging daily for Apartment Therapy, you can also follow Kyle's favored tips, resources, and inspiration on her own blog here. For additional before and after photos click here and for more information, including cost of services, check out Kyle's Cloud 9 website!
