where organization & style make love


Half pro organizer. Half stylist. I'm here to make your right and left brain get along.

On one hand, you're the type of person who is inspired by beautiful style. On the other, you're a busy person dealing with clutter and just need things to work.

I get where you're coming from. That's why I gave up the corporate rat race to help people like myself who were discouraged by photos in blogs and magazines that couldn't possibly be of real spaces and real lives. I knew there was a way to make an inspiring space that focuses first on helping busy people function easily and realistically. 

So, using the ethos and method of professional organizing as a foundation, I started Decorum by Tess Canfield - an approach to interiors that blends good sense and good taste.

Take a look around. If you like what you see, let's chat.

The Process


We start with a free phone consultation and set goals based on your project, lifestyle and passion.



We declutter and set new systems, focusing on simplicity & utility. Unwanted items are donated, recycled or safely disposed.



We style and decorate with things you love. The result is an inspiring space that makes your life better.

Tess came in and really exceeded my expectations... I’m extremely grateful with how [my space] turned out and definitely couldn’t have gotten there by myself.

This is the beginning of a beautiful relationship.

How can we work together? Where do babies come from? What exactly is the "natural flavor" in La Croix sparkling water? 

All the above are possible questions to discuss, some more appropriate than others. Regardless, let's start chatting.
