We’ve lived in our current Los Altos home for almost 4 years and I’m still working on the decor. We’ve been lucky to have a great landlord in a really nice location so we aren’t in any rush to move, but I know when we decide to buy a home it will be much smaller than our current 2,500 square foot abode. That is just the way it goes here with our crazy Silicon Valley real estate market. I shared some photos of our family room after we moved in and I realized that it has transitioned quite a bit so today I am sharing an updated peek at the space.
I recently acquired an amazing vintage sideboard from the estate liquidation that we organized in San Francisco at the end of 2014 and I’ve finally had a chance to add some accessories and hang some new pieces of art. Harper approves of all of the changes to the space, of course she make the room feel like home!
This sideboard was tucked in a small dining room in the San Francisco home that dates to the early 1900s. I think it used to be part of a built-in from a different home, it has quite the weight to it and about 50 layers of paint. I was going to refinish it or repaint it but after it was cleaned up I decided to keep it just the way it is. It’s got a rustic look to it with tons of storage inside despite its low profile from the wall. I honestly don’t have much to put inside right now but over time I’m sure I’ll add to it.

Happy Monday my friends! I hope you have all recovered from your Superbowl festivities. I honestly didn’t care to watch, I’m still holding out for the Detroit Lions to make it to a Superbowl one day to become a fan. I know it will probably never happen but I need to stand by my team. I spent the weekend relaxing for a change, it was nice to have two days off in a row. Saturday we headed to Napa for the afternoon and Sunday my friend Larry came over for lunch and some light decorating at my house. I have had a few lingering projects so he helped me hang some art and make some updates. I know February is going to be one of those months that flies by so I wanted to make sure my home felt settled and relaxed when I have time to spend in it.
If you follow Kuzak’s Closet on social media you may have noticed that we spent a ton of time organizing garages in January. We had a handful of custom cabinet installs and several maintenance sessions with current clients. I think January is a popular month to tackle garages because it is a resolution for most clients to tackle. The garage often ends up as a dumping ground and an area that most of my clients are frustrated with. Since we don’t have basements in California, storage is tight and people seeking organizing services with Kuzak’s Closet are dreaming of a functional, clean, organized garage that can serve as a multipurpose space. Many clients are dreaming of storage, a possible parking space for their car, a workout room, or a play room for the kids.
Today I am giving you some inspiration to let you know that it is possible to have a garage that will achieve all of those goals. We recently finished working on this gorgeous space in Menlo Park with a client who wanted a space that felt functional and organized. She and her husband have two children and a very active lifestyle. They recently completed a remodel and by the time it came to designing the garage they were burnt out on decisions and decided to wait a little bit before they came up with a plan. I’m glad they did because that meant they were able to find out about Kuzak’s Closet and we were able to connect them with Valet Custom Cabinets, the company that we often partner with for beautiful spaces like this.

It’s a new year and I am constantly reminded how much I love my job! Kuzak’s Closet is booming and I can’t wait to see where 2015 will take the company! With all of the exciting projects going on I am trying to find balance and continue to deliver my standard quality of service while delegating more and more duties to my staff. With the demand for services as high as it is I can only grow with the help of others.
January is always a busy month but this year we were booked out earlier than usual (starting last November). We’ve had 2 great estate sales and an estate liquidation along with dozens of organizing sessions. I am actually looking to expand my organizing staff so if you or someone you know if interested in a job please check out the job posting here.
Speaking of staffing, things have changed a bit with my current staff. Al De La Rosa, one of my estate sale specialist has decided to retire after 2 years with the company. We were all sad to see him go but happy for him to have more free time to pursue his passion and creativity at Alberto’s Garden Art. Jennalynn Sallings, a very familiar face in the cashier seat at our estate sales is back after a 6 month hiatus. It’s been great to have her enthusiasm and spunk back! Billy Save, my right hand man, had heart surgery in early December and much to my shock is already back at work. He still needs to take it easy but we are glad to have his smile and his hauling expertise back on the job.
Today I am looking back at the highlights from January. Organizing is my passion and I love to see before and afters, this year has already been full of them in both the home organizing services and the estate services. Thank you all for being apart of the journey that I am on!
I’ve been in so many kitchens and closets so far this year I can’t keep them straight. Taylor and I have been teaming up for most sessions so we can service more clients at a time. She has been a great partner in crime and has turned into a great professional organizer. Most days we have 2-3 projects going on so if I cannot manage something she picks up the pieces for me. I’m lucky to have her and hope that I don’t burn her out too much before we can hire some additional help. Continue Reading »
