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, and has found an even wider audience through her hit Netflix series “Tidying Up With Marie Kondo.”
Christine Thorn shares the benefits of the KonMari Method with clients across the state and beyond through her venture Sage of Interiors, LLC, as well as giving presentations on Marie Kondo’s life-changing philosophy 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, became certified as a KonMari consultant, and works with clients all over Connecticut and in southern Massachusetts. She’s now a Certified Sliver Consultant.
Thorn creates living spaces of comfort and serenity through the KonMari Method’s category-by-category system of tidying—guiding clients in a tidying journey toward keeping things that nourish the soul, while discarding the rest, and producing lasting results in the process. At the center of it all is a fundamental question: Does this spark joy?
For the past 27 years, Christine Thorn has been helping people with their body, mind, and spirit 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.
