about me

Qualified to help you create a calm and relaxing home

Hi, I’m Louise Davidson, owner of The Tidy Lark.  I’m a Certified KonMari Consultant: a professional declutterer and home organiser trained in Marie Kondo’s world famous method of transforming homes and lives.

I live in Cardiff with my husband, three children and Olive, the crazy cocker spaniel. Together we strive for a simple life, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t often a little mad and mostly loud! I wouldn’t have it any other way.

From experience I know that life generates clutter, and chaos can seem to creep into our homes when we’re not looking.  Maintaining an organised home can feel like an exhausting, full-time job. However, I also know that life can transform when you tidy your home, helping you feel back in control. 

When I read The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up by Marie Kondo, I was ready for change. I started to declutter through the categories and realised this specific method was just what I needed.  I worked on my belongings first, handling every item and making some tricky decisions.  Living with less had instant benefits in my life and I grew in confidence.  With support my children considered their items and my husband has been inspired to get involved too.

As a family we have significantly reduced the amount we own and our home is calmer, easier to maintain and has processes in place for the five of us to live an organised life.  Years on I feel in control of our home, live more intentionally and am confident in making decisions based on our family values.  

Decluttering and organising has given us freedom for so much more fun and laughter. The process was truly freeing and life-changing in every way. 

I feel so strongly about the positive results tidying brings that it inspired a new career as a KonMari Consultant and Professional Organiser.

As well as training as a KonMari Consultant I’ve also invested in courses to support clients with ADHD and those with hoarding behaviour. I feel honoured to support others decluttering their homes and changing their lives forever.
