Behind
Simply Spaced

With a design background in the fast-paced film industry, I spent over ten years cultivating curiosity in the art of efficient space design, time management, and the power of organizational systems. In 2011, life threw me an unexpected curveball that reminded me that a demanding career without a balanced home life left me feeling stuck and uninspired.

By consciously creating space and time for what mattered most, ridding myself of the non-essential, and “decluttering” my home and life, I learned that order was the catalyst for creativity. As a bonus, I found my passion and calling: helping others change their lives by transforming their homes and routines. My wish for everyone is the ability to transform your home into a haven that supports you to live your best life. Welcome to Simply Spaced: your life, organized.

“Every person that comes into my office wants to know who put it together. I TRUST Simply Spaced implicitly and highly recommend this great service.”

-Shana, Universal Studios CA

“Monica has given me back my house. My husband and I are packrats. We had accumulated a huge amount of clothing, papers, books, and things over the 20+ years we have lived in our house. I was ashamed to invite non-close friends to the once beautiful house. My house is back and I love entertaining!”

-Carolyn, Los Angeles, CA

What's your best organizational hack?

Designate a home for everything. It will cut down time putting things away and finding things when you need them.

What is your favorite quote?

“Don't compare your behind-the-scenes with someone else's highlight reel.”

DEYA REECE, Lead Organizer

What is your favorite space or category to organize? 

My favorite space to organize is the whole house! I love it when trust has been established with the client so that I am able to move things around from room to room to really help them to best utilize space.

What's your best organizational hack?

My favorite way to organize is to utilize unique storage items a client already has as much as possible. A special tray can hold mail and unused baskets can make a pantry beautiful and unique.

What was your most precious childhood possession?

Photographs! My dad is a photographer and we traveled all over when I was a child. The photos we have are priceless. 

What is your favorite quote?

"Kindness means taking your positive energy and spreading it to the world around you"

ALEX PATCH, Organizer

What is your favorite space or category to organize? 

I love organizing a shelf! Shelves are a great way to display personal belongings, mementos, and books and brings some colorful personality into a home! It takes a lot of movement to get it right, but when it is, it feels so good. 

What's your best organizational hack?

If it doesn't work - FIX IT! Sometimes, a system is put in place that just doesn't work anymore.

What was your most precious childhood possession?

My home videos. We used to film EVERYTHING, and it's so much fun to go back with these recorded memories, and laugh at how silly we used to be! 

What is your favorite quote?

One can speak poetry, just by arranging colors well.
- Vincent Van Gogh

NICOLE MARINO, Digital Marketing Manager

What is your favorite space or category to organize? 

Bedrooms, because I love creating a space of individuality and personal expression.

What's your best organizational hack?

Minimalism. I enjoy donating items quite often, it keeps my space organized and free from clutter. I also love the opportunity to give back.

What was your most precious childhood possession?

Bunny, my favorite stuffed animal. She went with me to every sleepover.

What is your favorite quote?

"Wherever you go, go with all your heart."



MELISSA ADAMES, Virtual Assistant

What is your favorite space or category to organize? 

As a kid it was always my room and as an adult it's now my whole space. My friends joke when they come over how I'm too tidy. I think part of it is how my mother raised me. Chores was a big weekly routine in our household that she instilled in me, and I've carried that with me as I got older. 

What's your best organizational hack?

Becoming as minimal as possible in every aspect of my life. Also, unpack right after your trip no matter what time of day it is!

What was your most precious childhood possession?

My bike! I learned how to ride at an early age. My favorite memories involve biking around the neighborhood with friends and siblings. 

What is your favorite quote?

"I don't know where I'm going, but I'm on my way."
