“I live in the South of France. My house is an old XVIII the century french farm. I work, I have three children and a husband, many friends and family over very often. My kitchen needed to be reorganized in a very practical and organized way but I didn’t really want to change anything. Probably habits and a lack of time. Changing the kitchen was like changing something in my life, throwing memories. I could not do it by myself.
Adèle kindly offered to do it. I was scared because I like my kitchen and the way I run it but knew something had to be done. It needed time and work, the eye of a professional, a sense of organization combined to the knowledge of my way of life, lots of tact.
Adèle worked hard several days and transformed my kitchen. It took me a while to change my habits but I do appreciate very much the options she has chosen: tools are settled in a logic and practical way, food is stored properly and the display looks much better. It’s easier to work and the kitchen has a whole new look. Friends really see the difference and congratulate me… or should I say congratulate Madame Mahabir’s work!”

“I worked with Adele in 2014 when I sold my home and was moving to New Jersey. Adele organized the entire move which included sorting all items by room, then organized into labeled bins and stored until our new home was finished. Adele made amazing suggestions on what to keep and what to donate which made my life a lot easier when moving into my new space. Later that year, Adele moved my family from NY to NJ and completed the move from A-Z. From packing to unpacking and organizing all our household items and belongings, Adele did the entire move for us. She coordinated the movers to and from locations and unpacked our new home in less than 4 days!
We didn’t have any furniture or large items in our new home as we wanted to make a fresh new start in our new home. Adele purchased everything in our new home and then proceeded to decorate our space beautifully. She chose personal touches and accessories for every room of our new home, which made us feel immediately connected to our new space. Adele chose and purchased all furniture, accessories and décor for all rooms which was an amazing fete! From paintings on the walls, to candles to drawer organization, Adele completed this entire project and did it with a smile on her face. In less than one week, Adele moved and unpacked us and helped us get prepared for a house warming party later that week! I couldn’t believe her level of efficiency and attention to detail. If you are looking for not only a moving and organizing service, but also a decorator and partner to make your new space feel like a home, Adele is the person you want to work with.”
“As a busy professional, a single dad, completely unorganized, and with no idea how to set up my belongings, help was definitely needed. She organized my home and did it all. Adele revamped my kitchen/dining area, my closets, my cabinets, even my car! Once the work was complete, I moved again, and she was able to pack, move, unpack and set my new home up with very little input and no supervision. I trusted her with every step of my move, I literally left my apartment in the morning to go to work and came home to my new house with everything moved and setup beautifully. She is so good at this, I had her come back regularly, coaching me on how to do it on my own. I’m proud to say, my place is so inviting, I love coming home to a place that is both cozy and function. Thank you Adele for all your help and PATIENCE.”
“My clutter is gone, my kitchen closets are organized and look lovely, even the bathrooms look more modern while still being home. It's like Tinkerbell has come and worked wonders in my home.
Thank you Adele.”
“In 2016, we moved belongings from two homes into a new house and were surrounded by a sea of boxes – it was overwhelming just to put the boxes in some kind of order, not to mention unpacking them and putting things away. We had never used an organizer before but hired Adele out of extreme need, She was recommended to us by our moving company. We gave Adele the most difficult assignments, especially since she didn’t know us: double sets of pots/pans/kitchen utensils/dishes/flatware/glasses; garage and mudroom supplies, like tools, electric bulbs and batteries; kitchen cleaning supplies; and toiletries and makeup. She managed to put them all together in a sensible and attractive way. And for the more decorative items, she showed a flair for color and design. She is also good company, calm, a self starter, lovely, just what you need in times of stress!”

“One of the best decisions my girlfriend made in moving into and furnishing our new apartment was seeking the professional help that Adele’s services provide. Adele was beyond helpful in our transition. She was solely dedicated to making our move as pleasant as possible. She handled all the particulars, from the moving truck, to discarding items, to finding appropriate new furniture. In one day, she helped to consolidate the furniture and discard from our previous 3 bedroom apartment, so as to create a spacious and comfortable atmosphere in our new 1 bedroom apartment. Her organizational skills are so adept that she had us rethinking the way we used to live and even encouraged us to adopt a better, more efficient lifestyle. If you’re seeking an effortless and dedicated level of professional assistance in your move or interior decoration, Adele is definitely the first person that should come to mind. She will make you feel like your move is her own. She puts her all into everything, coming at the crack of dawn and staying well after dark. We can’t thank her enough for the help she has provided. Should we move again we know exactly who to call, but we don’t plan on leaving our cozy new apartment any time soon!”

“Working with Adele was such a pleasure. She helped me get my closets and winter/summer items organized. My basement and closets were a complete mess and I wanted to be able to make room for new items as well as find things I hadn’t seen in a long time. With Adele’s help she advised me on what to donate and what to keep so I would save time and money when shopping for new clothes and household items. My favorite part was she color coordinated my closet and shoes. I have never had my closets look so professional and organized! It felt like my closet was a small women’s boutique! And as a bonus, Adele organized all my jewelry, scarves, shoes and hats. She did a fantastic job and I would highly recommend Adele to anyone. She is a joy to work with and has amazing ideas.”

Adele worked with me to help pack up my home in Darien to move out at short notice after I sold it. This involved helping to go through a lot of items being stored in the basement and attic that needed to be donated/recycled/trashed, moved to a smaller apartment or put in storage. She helped me with what appeared to be a monumental task within 5 days, working tirelessly alongside me. After I left to return overseas where I work she coordinated follow-up work (including a repair to my home caused by damage during the move) to complete the move and make the house ready for the new owners. Her rolodex of people who could help with anything and everything, from cleaning the hard drives of old computers I wanted to get rid of to movers and cleaners, was invaluable.

Adele organized 40 years of our belongings into categories for friends, relatives, charity, etc. Through on-line contacts she sold everything from table saws to antiques and within weeks she had the house empty, clean, and ready for sale. Her infectious personality and expertise made the whole process stressless and I couldn’t have moved without her. But it didn’t end there: Adele also helped me move to my new senior living location, Edgehill Stamford by estimating the sizes of furniture to bring and shopping with, and for me, to find what I needed to make my new surroundings as much like home as possible. Once there Adele also helped arrange furniture and hang pictures. She’s a gem!!

A life-changing experience. That is what I got with Adele. I didn’t know there even was such a thing as an apartment organizer. Adele came to me very highly recommended by the person managing my transition from rehab for my spine operations back to living in my own apartment. Without my realizing it, my apartment had become essentially an office, with papers – important papers I was working on – and books all over the place. In comes Adele. A burst of sunshine. A tornado of activity. The decisiveness of a general. The eye of an interior designer. And things start moving right away. Everything with my agreement, but with her initiative, her sense of what is right. My couch? Got to go, but she can get me another one! And Adele has movers. Two of my bookcases? Got to go. Too many bookcases. My rug? Got to go. “I can find you another rug.” An amazing experience. The apartment needed to be painted. Adele knows painters. We took the low bid. The closets need to be rearranged. Adele rearranges them. The closet in my bedroom looks like Architectural Digest. All the drawers in the apartment, including the kitchen, are straightened up, are now neat. The whole apartment is different. I am different. I am proud to have friends come by as, coincidentally, they did just after Adele finished. Knowing me from my old days, they were amazed. The apartment is not overproduced. It is me, not someone else. But a new me, a me as I would like to be. That is what Adele does. She reorganizes your living space. Actually, she builds you.a new living space. But what she really does is change your life.
