So much to say! I’ll start by saying that as a first time mummy to a lovely, lively toddler and having purchased our first home just over a year ago, things in our house were a little, err, hectic.
We’d moved 6 times in 8 years and accumulated so much stuff. Stuff we didn’t love and stuff that had emotional ties. Speaking to Elizabeth was just brilliant and truly couldn’t have come at a better time. I can’t put into a paragraph how much she taught me in 2 hours! I really didn’t realise how much the space around us affects our emotional well being and how much of a visual person I was.
The initial decluttering filled me with energy and the tips she’s given us mean that our space is beginning to feel calmer and happier. Also I’ve learned that it’s ok to focus on me! Shock horror!! I’m now not buying endless items in a panic, but thinking more about what would actually make me feel good and happy.
We’ve a long, long way to go but believe that if we can keep these things up in the long term then we can start living more harmoniously and happily. …thank you!
Elizabeth, thanks to YOU for the first time ever I’m starting to feel happy where we live. Just had a friend round who said how great things were and how nice the house felt. No paint changes, just all the tips you’ve given us seem to be working!! Thank you.
Elizabeth was so helpful in re-invigorating my love for my home. I’d started to feel bored of my interiors, without knowing the best next steps to take to help breathe more life into the place. By carefully considering my passions and delving into what I want from my living space, Elizabeth was able to make recommendations that were perfectly suited to my tastes. Her excellent plan for refreshing my home involved super simple changes, from filling my home with my favourite childhood scents to the fun mixture of colours and textures, really helped me to create a space that I love and enjoy. If you’re stuck in a home décor rut, I’d definitely recommend giving Elizabeth a call!

We absolutely recommend Elizabeth’s services. We found her holistic approach to decluttering really refreshing. She’s cured me of my hoarding obsession!
Despite his initial reservations, my partner only wishes we had taken Elizabeth’s advice sooner! Our home was on the market for more than we had hoped, and we’ve managed to get it sold in a tough market! More importantly we’ve been enjoying our home and space so much more. We were even tempted to take it off the market and stay!
Now moving to a new place – which is pretty much exactly what Elizabeth got me to visualise. Highly recommended!
I really enjoyed the decluttering service provided by EDIT.
Elizabeth brings a very calming and reassuring approach to making positive changes in your home, starting with simple and effective steps you can take to improve your daily routine. As someone who has been a bit indecisive about interior design choices in the past, Elizabeth was very effective in helping me to be confident in the things that I like and to rid inhibitions around making purchases for my home. Since our first session, I have already made some changes that have dramatically improved my living room and bedroom (without having to spend a fortune!) I am looking forward to putting other suggestions made by Elizabeth into action over the next few weeks.
I’d highly recommend Elizabeth to anyone who feels they need to make changes within their home, both from a psychological as well as a design perspective. Elizabeth really helps you to understand the things that make you happy and feel settled and then to translate those things into reality.
Elizabeth Danon and her services are absolutely fantastic – If I could give 10 stars I would! Firstly Elizabeth helped me to clear the space in my bedroom – which was fascinating for me as I am definitely not a hoarder and didn’t think my room was cluttered! I just felt that I wasn’t quite feeling right when I woke up in the mornings and I couldn’t put my finger on what it was.
I felt great almost immediately as Elizabeth got me to evaluate EVERYTHING in there as either “beautiful, useful or joyful” and just get rid of anything that wasn’t. This was a truly liberating experience! The whole process felt freeing and inspiring – and fun!
Elizabeth guided me through the process with care and support which also helped a lot – she has the perfect mixture of supportive, motivating and ruthless! I did experience a mixture of emotions while evaluating all my stuff, but this led to me feeling like I was shedding skins that I no longer needed. So liberating. The energy in my entire bedroom changed (imagine doing it throughout your entire home!) and I also found that it positively affected my mood too. It also made way for me to re-style the room (which Elizabeth helped massively with!) and to think differently about how I want my environment to look and feel.
Since then, Elizabeth has assisted me with further clearing and I moved house recently so I enlisted her support with getting my “stuff” whittled down even more. By the time I moved, I was only taking with me clothes, a few furniture items and things that I really loved. I can’t tell you what a difference it makes to the whole of your life to feel so free! When you really get into clearing your space and only making room for the things that you really need or love, you feel lighter and freer than ever before.
I recommend this experience to everyone – because I actually didn’t think I even needed it yet it’s been life-changing! I have also found that the less “stuff” you have in your environment, the higher are the standards you hold for yourself. I will never buy anything again, or choose to bring something into my life without consideration for the effect it will have on me! How brilliant. Elizabeth’s service is magical and priceless and I can’t recommend her enough. We are blessed to have such expertise available to us!

Working with Elizabeth/EDIT was fantastic. She was an enormous help when we needed to get our new office sorted, and fast.
She quickly helped us get to a design that we felt was right (and on a tight budget!). From that point onwards Elizabeth managed the process with efficient and helpful communication – and left us with an end result we’re delighted with!
As Elizabeth gave us such clear instruction on the design and set up process, we have now replicated her design in another new part of our office extension.
When I was heavily pregnant I began to look at my home in a very different way. I wanted to welcome our baby into our home with as much ease as possible and I needed to do some decluttering to make space for new furniture. Elizabeth came to my home and we began with a consultation where we walked around the rooms and focussed on the areas that felt cluttered and unmanageable. Elizabeth made me feel calm about decluttering as I was feeling rather anxious about reducing down what I had, she was empathetic to the items I felt a strong connection with and she helped me bring those items out on display to enjoy them!
I not only decluttered my entire home with the help and guidance of Elizabeth, but found a new way of life where my home now supports me and my family. We know where everything is, which makes our lives a lot easier, while being able to enjoy every room in our home with all our lovely memories and items displayed beautifully.
I went for the interior design service afterwards which gave me a clear vision for my entire home, especially the baby’s bedroom.
Using the EDIT way has meant that I’m now able to keep my home tidy and de-cluttered with ease. Elizabeth has taught me the skills to keep my home exactly the way we want it.
My wife and I have two young girls. We were aware we were accumulating mountains of stuff but had not really come up with a way of managing it.
Life can be hectic so whilst we knew we needed to do something, we had not given ourselves the time to come up with a plan to sort things out.
This is where Elizabeth came in. She asked us a few questions about how we live and what we like doing. She then did an audit of the house and came up with a list of activities, habits and some changes we needed to make.
Then came a big sort and a clear out which Elizabeth helped us with – this was a revelation as the house looked instantly more welcoming, we were able to help some local charity organisations, friends and even made some cash on eBay. I was surprise how enjoyable Elizabeth made the process. Elizabeth also helped us source some good value storage solutions for the stuff we kept that also helped us with establishing good habits.
When she left, the house felt new again and my wife and I were lifted. Whilst I cannot promise we keep the house looking this way all the time (!) it is a much nicer place for us to live in and making the place look great is a much easier and more enjoyable task.
If your family house is feeling like it’s bursting with stuff, you may not need to move, just get Elizabeth in. She’s much more affordable and you will love how your house feels afterwards.
Verity and Simon
Verity: After the excitement of buying our first home together my boyfriend and I were hit with the enormity of filling it with furniture and making it feel like a home. We were faced with numerous challenges, a small living space, limited budget and biggest of all our totally contrasting tastes.
Elizabeth was a saviour; working with us separately she took the time to understand our individual personalities so she could successfully create a unique vision, which we both loved.
Elizabeth provided not only inspiration but also practical advice, she talked us though each room and helped us create a prioritisation list of what buy. With her industry experience and insider knowledge she was able to share great cost saving hacks and quick win ideas.
Best of all Elizabeth has helped us create a space that makes us feel happy and calm. Already both of us have felt positive effects from her easy to implement ideas. We have been able to create a home quickly, within budget and best of all without arguing! I couldn’t recommend her services enough!
Simon: I was worried about Verity’s love of neon and random trends making our new flat into an Aladdin’s cave of clash – amazingly Elizabeth managed to curb her erratic buying and also present ideas that we both liked. With Elizabeth’s guidance we have created a really fantastic living space, which is calming escape from the world and with no neon in sight!
The whole experience with Elizabeth was amazing. My boyfriend and I had just bought our first flat and I was feeling really overwhelmed with everything and didn’t know where to start when it came to interior design.
Elizabeth’s questionnaire was really interesting and I was intrigued to see what she came up with, and she was absolutely spot on.
The Pinterest board she created was perfect and I got ridiculously excited every time I received a notification that she had added something new.
She was so helpful and I felt like she completely understood me and what I was looking for.
What I loved most about the EDIT process was the ease of how we communicated. It was a clear and enjoyable process where I answered some questions about myself and received a full report back on my overall style, along with a Pinterest board of room inspiration and links to products chosen just for me.
As I work in fashion, I am extremely particular about colour and texture. Elizabeth understood my style instantly.
Each of the answers I provided to the questions have given me a guide to live by at home, specifically for my bedroom as I live in a shared house. When I come home from a long day, I know that my sanctuary awaits!
