Home Edit is a service we provide for people who need some help with clutter and organising their home.
Decluttering programmes on tv and home edit shows are becoming more popular than ever, as we try and keep our homes more streamlined and stress free.
More and more people are realising that clutter can cause us to feel a bit overwhelmed.
When the realisation you need to declutter hits, it’s worth asking yourself:
- When did the clutter start to build up?
- What kind of clutter is it? And how is it affecting me?
- What has stopped you from tackling it before?
- What difference will getting rid of it make?
Do you need help with getting organised?
Testimonials are only as good as you are.

“Once we chose to go with Abode Property Styling for the partial staging of our lovely property in Sinagra, we found working with May-Ann delightful. She was quickly able to assess our needs and exchange ideas with us in a fun and creative way. She went out of her way to provide the essential furnishings and nick nacks for our home which culminated in our home looking amazing for the photo shoot and bringing about a sale in just 21 days on the market (the avg in the area being over 80 days). We highly recommend May-Ann for her versatility and flair in making a home come to life.”

“May-Ann provided a high quality, great value styling service that resulted in our house being sold on the first weekend showing at close to asking price. She transformed our house from a lived in cluttered family home to something that you may see in magazines. This was all done with some advice on what to remove, a few key pieces of furniture and great styling pieces, all off one meeting with us. Can definitely recommend.”
“Our home of 20 years needed to be reorganised – it had become cluttered, some furniture needed to be replaced, it was just not really ‘working’ for us. However, we didn’t have a clear picture of what we wanted. This is when we engaged May-Ann; she took a systematic and objective approach by firstly helping us to define our needs and objectives, then assessed what we already had, taking into consideration how our rooms ‘worked’, and so on. She gave us a completely different perspective that opened us up to new possibilities for our living spaces. Her plan included the new furniture purchases already identified but importantly, there was a re-assignment of the function of some rooms and an effective re-allocation of existing furniture. The result hugely enhanced the livability and our enjoyment of our home! May-Ann’s creativity and professionalism were evident at all times, and her friendly manner made her easy to work with.”

“Abode Property Styling was my saving grace when trying to sell my house. May-Ann provided advice on how to style my house before putting it on the market with so many practical and cost effective options. The photos looked amazing and my house sold after just 2 weeks. I was so happy with the results I have taken her advice to style my new home too. Thanks May-Ann. You’re worth your wait in gold!”
“When we wanted to furnish and redecorate our 4 bedroom rental home we decided to engage an interior designer/property stylist and chose May Ann. We were particularly influenced by her friendly and helpful manner and most importantly her fee was more reasonable than most. We gave her a free hand with a budget (which she did not exceed) and she organised the selection and purchasing of furniture, decorative items, paintings white goods etc.; even down to the hanging of pictures on the walls.. And she had a great team behind her like Heather and Peter. It was no trouble for her to spend a lot of time visiting various stores to get the right item. She went the extra mile willingly with a smile. All her dealings were transparent, a rare quality these days. Credits offered by suppliers for purchases were returned back to us. She is an honest person. We were pleased with the end result and could not have hoped for a better outcome. It goes without saying that we would recommend Abode/May Ann to other property owners without hesitation.”

A big thank you to May-Ann (Abode Property Styling) who transformed our much loved family home, that we had already vacated, into a home that resembled any given display home. When selling you should never underestimate the difference that styling can make.”
“I highly recommend Abode Property styling! May-Ann’s knowledge and expertise in her field is outstanding. I have used her on several occasions, and she has given me much more worth than her fee. For styling for selling homes you literally make more than you spend, and I have also used her for personal styling and DE-clutter and it was absolutely worth every penny. I am now much more confident when I am shopping and with the way my house looks. I have also found I spend less money trying to make my home look good!

“May-Ann was an absolute pleasure to work with. She understood my demographics and target market, adhered to the current trends and style of the home – being a riverfront Mount Lawley home she ensured that the style matched it with absolute perfection and within 14 days of being on the market we had an offer from a purchaser who fell in love with the home.
Styling works, and if you are looking for professionalism coupled with excellence in delivery then look no further than Abode Property Styling.”
“We recently engaged Abode Property Styling to style a 4 bedroom investment property in Bennett Springs in Perth. As we are based in Melbourne it was important for us to find someone that was dependable, a good communicator and someone we could trust. We found that May-Ann from Abode fitted the bill perfectly. Initially we were not sure if we were going to professionally style the property and we found May-Ann friendly in her approach and happy to talk through with us the benefits of doing so. We did not find her pushy in any way as we made our decision. We also loved the classic style selected by May-Ann and many people who visited the property commented on how nicely styled it was. The result for us was a quick sale in a tough market which we were very pleased with. Thanks May-Ann for all your help and support through the process.”
“I cannot express how Home styling has helped so much setting up my home for Airbnb.
May-Ann was exceptional with her time and advice, she kept the consulting on track & down to business.
I found it difficult DE- cluttering after 20 odd years in my home with so much furniture, home wares and trinkets. May-Ann’s streamline guidance of less is more made the difference.
The change has been incredible, I now have a great sense of freedom when I walk in, easier to maintain, leaving each room inviting and welcoming.
I would highly recommend May-Ann for DE- cluttering, setting up house for Airbnb or to sell your property.”
