Marie Kondo has become a household name through the popularity of her KonMari Method of tidying, decluttering and reorganizing homes as a way of transforming lives for the better. The benefits of KonMari have become well-known in part through the hit Netflix series “Tidying Up With Marie Kondo.”

Christine Thorn shares the benefits of the KonMari Method with clients across Connecticut through her venture Sage of Interiors, LLC, as well as giving KonMari presentations at venues including libraries, residential communities, and professional settings.

Inspired by Kondo’s best-selling book, “The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up,” Thorn studied with Kondo and her team in New York City and became certified as a KonMari consultant. This past November, she was chosen by Kondo’s team to serve on a panel for the KonMari Consultant Certification Courses in New York City.

Through the KonMari Method’s category-by-category system of tidying, Thorn creates living spaces of comfort and serenity, guiding clients in a tidying journey toward keeping things that nourish the soul, while discarding the rest, which produces lasting results. At the heart of KonMari is the fundamental question about each object, Does this spark joy?

Thorn has been helping people with their body, mind, and spirit for 27 years as a Chiropractor, Reflexologist, Reiki Master Practitioner, and Acupuncturist. Her passion for helping others heal through their environment and home has grown to include creating a new look and feel within their living spaces—and that, in turn, helped launch her on her KonMari journey.
