Why celebrities have gone colour code crazy with their house transformations – and why you should too

MOVE over, Marie Kondo – now we have fallen for the tidying tricks of decluttering duo Clea Shearer and Joanna Teplin.

In their hit Netflix show Get Organised With The Home Edit, the pair use their organisational wizardry to transform the houses of everyone from the regular working mum to Hollywood stars such as Reese Witherspoon and Eva Longoria.

It makes for addictive viewing as Clea and Joanna use small hacks to make every room in the home perfectly organised – and looking like a rainbow of colour co-ordination in just a few simple steps.

Here, Siobhan O’Connor reveals The Home Edit’s top tips for containing your clutter like a celeb.

Who are the home edit?

WITH more than three million Instagram followers, a website, a best-selling book and now a hit Netflix show, The Home Edit became famous nearly overnight.

Clea and Joanna, who met through a mutual friend, came up with the idea after both moving to Nashville, Tennessee.

Both women, previously full-time mums, say they gained their skills from years of tidying and sorting their own homes. The duo took just four hours to launch their winning concept.

Now, their decluttering service costs from £190 per hour, and celebrity clients include Gwyneth Paltrow, Kim Kardashian and Katy Perry.

Playroom: Eva Longoria

EVEN Desperate Housewives need professional help to de-clutter.

Actress Eva, 45, recruited The Home Edit to tackle two-year-old son Santiago’s playroom.


They suggested: Invest in cloth-lined baskets to neatly store teddies and smaller toys. These work best lined up on a shelf or bottom of the wardrobe.

Adjust wardrobe clothing rods to the children’s eye level. This frees up shelf space high up to store toy boxes or more clothes.

Colour co-ordinate books in rainbow shades – it looks tidier.

Use clear, stackable drawers for socks, underwear and baby essentials like nappies and creams to find things quicker and account for what you have.

Make finding medicines easy by investing in a turntable known as a Lazy Susan. It fits these items neatly and can be stored high up, out of reach of children.

Garage/spare room: Khloe Kardashian

KEEPING on top of things in a big garage proved tricky for reality star Khloe, 36, who hired the decluttering duo to organise hers.

Use clear drawers to store “backstop” items – those you don’t need on a daily basis. Having clear containers allows you to see what’s inside, and stacking them on a shelving unit keeps everything neat.

Organise spare space into “stations” – eg, “gardening items area”, “decorating equipment area” – so you always know where to find different items.

Don’t be tempted to load up storage boxes or shelves until they’re overflowing. This looks messy and makes it impossible to find anything.

When items begin to overspill, ditch those that you haven’t used for a year.

Label ALL your boxes, especially those for paperwork. Not only does it make things easier to find, it will also make you feel more in control, seeing everything labelled up.


Wardrobe: Reese Witherspoon

WHEN The Home Edit took on the 44-year-old actress’s Nashville home they categorised everything from her Big Little Lies wardrobe to her red-carpet dresses.

Their hacks for sorting a wardrobe are: When organising a chest of drawers, think of it as starting at the head and working down to the feet.


Top drawers should store hats and scarves, middle drawers are home to tops and jumpers, while the bottom drawers house trousers and socks.

Doughnut roll scarves to save space by wrapping around your hand into a loop then pulling through the end to tie it in place.

Display boots upright in the bottom of your wardrobe by filling them with shapers or newspaper to hold their shape.

Replace mismatched hangers for identical ones. This will allow you to fit more in and it will look polished.

Handbags are tricky to store well in cupboards. Use hooks on the wall to hang bags from instead.
