If you’ve been watching any Netflix in 2019 (and who hasn’t?), you may have just run across the crazy hot new series Tidying Up with Marie Kondo featuring lifestyle guru Marie Kondo who takes the concept of an organized home to a new level.
It’s always great to start a new year, leaving behind the old and ushering in the new; and Marie Kondo would love The Retreat at Mountain Brook because there is so much space for organizing.
One of our very favorite apartment homes is the Beaumont, a 3 bedroom/2.5 bath town home containing a spacious 1,670 sq. ft. of living space. Opportunities for living the organized life you want abound in this magnificent jewel; a large walk in closet in the master bedroom, abundant cabinet space in the kitchen, and outdoor closet space accessed from your porch, for those out of season items that need to be tucked away.
During the series of inspiring home makeovers, Marie helps clients clear out clutter and choose joy by taking stock of their current inventory of clothes, books, paper, miscellaneous items, then sentimental items, determining their value in your life. Calling her process, the KonMari method, she advises that only items the spark joy in your life should remain. In her lifestyle blog, Marie advises you that “When you imagine your ideal lifestyle, you are really clarifying why you want to tidy and identifying the kind of life you want to live once you have finished.”
Those are great words to consider because identifying the kind of life you want to live is important. And surrounding yourself with joy through the lifestyle you choose is a great path. We think that a fresh, clean space can be a powerful motivator to help you relax and enjoy life. Coming home to a luxurious space to live can be a game changer after a busy day at work, traveling out of town, or even bringing in groceries (unless you are smart and get Shipt to do that for you! They currently deliver from Target, Costco, Publix, Kroger and New York Butcher Shop.)
As for things that bring joy, residents enjoy the Retreat’s state of the art fitness centers – and as warm weather approaches, one of 3 resort-style pools. Our clubhouses offer a spot for residents and guest to watch sports, have a get-together or a cup of coffee on the house from our signature coffee bar.
Add to that the apartment community’s convenient location in near many of Birmingham’s fastest growing companies, shops, local dining, entertainment and you just may agree that The Retreat at Mountain Brook has everything you need to live a joy filled life every day.
