Gemma Quinn

Create a life you love

Hello. I’m Gemma Quinn, and I’m proud to be Australia’s first certified KonMari™ Consultant! I’m also an Evaluator working for KonMari Media, Inc. to mentor and certify consultants across the globe.

I have always been passionate about organisation and design but the “Life Changing Magic of Tidying up” - my first introduction to the KonMari™ philosophy was a truly transformational moment. From my own experiences I know that tidying up and decluttering is about so much more than clearing out excess and having pinterestable drawers! The overall impact is much deeper, more cathartic and impactful - and can affect the way we think, feel and behave.

Combining my experiences and interests led me to develop my own home and lifestyle organizational consultancy. I wanted to help other people change they way they live and choose joy everyday. I am proud to say I am a Master KonMari™ Consultant!

People first

I’m fascinated by about the way people relate to spaces, objects and systems - and how that affects how they feel. I draw on over 15 years of leadership experience working in operations and human resources within the design industry. I’ve transferred my experience in creating effective, efficient and happy teams into my work with individuals, families and homes.

A designer’s eye

I use the KonMari™ philosophy combined with design thinking - a creative approach that puts people at the heart of the design process.  I start by understanding my client’s needs and lifestyle and providing personalised solutions to life organization. My goal is to help you promote order, create simple processes for day-to-day life, and reduce stress and conflict in running your home.

The freedom of function

My aim is to free you from the stresses and strains of everyday life, creating a space that looks and feels good - and crucially, one that works brilliantly. When your everyday life flows easily, it enables you to concentrate on the things that matter most, and live your life with joy.

I’ve always been passionate about design and organization, and through KonMari™ I’ve been able to combine my passions into a career in consulting! It is a privilege to share my expertise with my clients and guide them through this fantastic experience. Read my story here



Marie Kondo

Enchanted with organizing since her childhood, Marie Kondo began her tidying consultant business as a 19-year-old university student in Tokyo. Today, Marie is a renowned tidying expert helping people around the world to transform their cluttered homes into spaces of serenity and inspiration. Her KonMari Method™, introduced in The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up (a global phenomenon that has sold more than ten million copies in over forty countries), is a way of life inspired by a single question: Does this item spark joy? The answer points the way to a life filled only with the items we truly cherish.

Marie has been featured on more than fifty major Japanese television and radio programs as well as in Time Magazine, The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, The London Times, Vogue Magazine, the Ellen Show, the Rachael Ray Show and many more. She has also been listed as one of Time Magazine’s 100 most influential people.

 

The KonMari Method™

DOES IT SPARK JOY?

The KonMari Method™ is a state of mind – and a way of life – that encourages cherishing the things that spark joy in one’s life. Belongings are acknowledged for their service – and thanked before being let go, should they no longer spark joy. People around the world are drawn to this philosophy not only due to its effectiveness, but also because it places great importance on being mindful, introspective and optimistic.

THE KONMARI™ PHILOSOPHY

01 Commit yourself to tidying up

02 Imagine your ideal life

03 Finish letting go first

04 Tidy by category, not location

05 Follow the right order

06 Ask yourself if it sparks joy

 

THE MAGIC

The Power To Transform Lives

The decision to pursue what sparks joy extends far beyond its first application in home tidying: It often opens the door for greater self-discovery and fulfilment. After a thorough tidying session, one of Gemma's clients quit her job and started a new business. Another client shared that she felt comfortable travelling the world by herself - something she never thought she could do. Yet another client declared she went through such a dramatic change – moving on from a relationship that no longer sparked joy – that it transformed her entire life.
