"I moved into my first apartment on my own and was immediately overwhelmed. I had so many ideas to decorate but no clue where to start. Thank goodness for Heidi! I sent her pictures of what I was looking for in my new place. She came over and talked with me and went over the pictures and ideas I had so she understood exactly what I wanted. I felt completely at ease when she left to shop. When she came back I couldn't contain my excitement! She made my place absolutely beautiful and everything she got was perfectly in line with the idea I had in my head. Most importantly, she helped my new "place" feel like my new "home". Thank you Heidi you're amazing!" Caroline Stephenson - Atlanta, GA
"Order by Design has been instrumental in my life. I am a stay at home mom with an infant and a toddler. I moved into my townhouse a little over a year ago. Growing up I felt like I was an "organized" person. Turns out I was just a perfectionist. Ever since I had to take care of a whole household everything seemed to fall apart on me. I heard of Order By Design shortly after moving into my home. I thought about asking for organization help, but kept believing the lies that I just have a lack of time issue, and that as my kids get older I will have a cleaner house. Daily, I felt like I was running around my house trying to keep it clean. No matter how much I worked I felt like it was all for nothing. For me, if my house looked the same as it did when my husband left for work, it was a good day! I was so embarrassed by my house that no guest had ever been upstairs in my home. My problem was greater than I knew. Once I finally realized I couldn’t get my house in order on my own I finally called on Order By Design. After meeting Heidi, I saw that I had more than just an organizational problem. I also was living in fear. A lot of the accumulation of stuff had come from living in fear. I essentially started to hoard every good deal I could come across thinking that if I bought it then, at a good price, that when I need it I would have it. I didn't realize my behavior was hurting my whole household. Not only did I have way too many momentums from the past, but I had stuff that I just wanted to keep because I spent good money on it or thought I'd use the items later. I couldn’t find a home for most of my stuff so it piled up everywhere. With Order By Design, I was able to start working in the direction of gaining space in my house back. I also gained more self-esteem and confidence to be able to take care of my home with pride. Once I realized the fear of not being able to afford things in the future and that I'd rather have a clean, organized space than holding onto "things" I took the plunge. Heidi was able to give me assignments to help get it started. I was relieved immediately knowing that if I followed her direction I would soon have the organized home I dreamed of having. I quickly started to gain space back and I felt so motivated and empowered to keep going. I had no problem at that point to donate things and throw things out. I am fighting not only for a clean house but for the liberation of the unhealthy bondage and captivity I have felt living in my home due to the mess and chaos. I have already donated just about half of the things I have gone through in my home thus far. I have no regret getting rid of the stuff that I used to think was worthy of keeping. My mental well-being has changed drastically. I feel calm and confident as I see the changes. I am enjoying spending time in my home with my children instead of feeling like we are drowning in mess. I even play with my children upstairs! What Order By Design has done for me has been HUGE. It has enhanced the quality of my life and environment. It is so much easier my life by utilizing the space I had. I highly recommend Order By Design to everyone. No project is too big or too small for her. She dives right in and gets to work. There is no need to be embarrassed with her. She helped me to see that many people have the same issues I have and that it has nothing to do with being lazy, too busy, or incompetent. We all have our own strengths and organization is just not one of mine. Heidi can really access, make a plan, and execute like no other! I am forever grateful for her and her talent. My only regret is not calling on Order by Design sooner! My life will be forever changed.
Heidi is a fantastic worker and comes ready to get things done. She is adept at both organizing and staging, and it is amazing how, with her, it all comes together so quickly. After Heidi was here one day, my husband came home and asked, "Did she bring a team of people?" No - it was just Heidi and I, and much was done in just a few hours time. I am so glad I reached out, as I no longer have the daily dread of needing to go through all our stuff. I can focus on my family, my business, and have guests over with no worries. I highly recommend her, and am looking forward to our next session!"

"Awesome! Thank you so much!
I want to thank you again for your help yesterday. My daughter LOVES her "new" room! She calls it a "toy wonderland where everything is put away!" You have brought much order to a room of chaos. You are the best :)"
"I recently hired Heidi (from a referral on this forum) to organize my home. She did such a spectacular job, I had her organize my business as well! Heidi immediately grasped my needs and worked quickly to get me organized. She made my entire house flow properly. Most of us in this neighborhood live in old houses. Old houses usually mean small closets. I now have space everywhere!! Heidi's amazing talent to organize is topped off by her eye for design. Not all organizers can design as well. The combination is truly unique. The results are amazing! The improvements Heidi made are saving me hours each day. She is worth every single penny! I highly, highly recommend her for your home or business".
"I had Heidi Luckenbach organize my kitchen today....SO THRILLED!! She is a lovely person...she worked the WHOLE TIME, and got my kitchen in tip top shape.... I already have another appt to work on other parts of my house! I can totally recommend her without any reservations at all. Very thrilled....She helps with any job.....I suspect that we will have a long, relationship together!! :-)" ~Meg Cocroft ~ V.H.M.P.A.
"I have used Heidi on several occasions! The first time, I had her redo my daughter's bedroom. All she had to go by, was the comforter my daughter had picked out. She got my daughter's input on the colors and what she liked. Heidi came up with the perfect wall colors, and found complimentary window treatments and a bedskirt. She has the magic eye! My daughter and her friends think her room is sooo cool!
The second occasion I used Heidi's expertise was for my master bedroom. Since moving in we hadn't done anything to the room. It had no pictures or window treatments. My husband and I had purchased a new bed and decided it was time to fix it up. Heidi came in, rearranged our furniture, which in itself, made our room seem so much bigger! Then new paint, window treatments, art, and throw pillows for our bed.........Amazing!
I love Heidi's work so much, I had her redo my Living Room, which is on the front page of her website, and our sunroom too. I will be using her for my next project, the guestroom!
Thanks Heidi, you're the best!"
"Heidi has been a true blessing! She not only listens to my needs, and wants, but she offers very helpful hints, and advice. As a busy mother of 3 boys, I often have to ask Heidi just to "take over" and she has taken my tastes but added her expertise! Heidi is a delight to have in my home and is a joy to work with. She's flexible, fun, and the times flies by! Often I've had to leave for carpool and I return to a decorated and organized surprise that I've "loved" everytime!
She has helped me organize my basement, storage room, perfected my kitchen, organized, designed, and merchandised the office, and added her special touches to all areas of my home. I highly recommend Heidi for ANY job!"
~ Whitney Wideman ~ Marietta, GA
that is literally the word I always use when Heidi finishes a project in my home. She is amazing, and her work is amazing. I enjoy working with her to transform a space from cluttered and dysfunctional, to beautiful and organized, with a purpose. She works quickly and effectively. She definitely provides value – working with Heidi is time and money well spent!
~ Angela Strickland, Marietta, GA ~
"Heidi is wonderful! We only had a few days to get packed, to move into our new home we had built this year. Heidi stepped in and got busy. She basically did it all. She packed, moved, and unpacked us like the true professional she is. I do not know what we would have done without her!
Heidi has helped me, as a professional organizer/designer for the past few years. She has organized, space planned, merchandised, packed, unpacked, and re-merchandised both of my homes.
She has been an invaluable asset to our family. I highly recommend her as a professional and as a friend."
~Lois Watts Alpharetta, GA ~
We moved into our house a year and a half ago with furniture that is way too big for the house and way too traditional for my taste. Buying new furniture at this point is not an option for us. Because of this, I have been very uncomfortable in our family room. I felt like the furniture was blocking the room, and kids’ toys were constantly scattered everywhere, blocking what little pathways we were able to create. Built-in bookshelves had kids’ books thrown on them and had become a storage spot for everything that I did not have time to put away and for everything that didn’t have another place to go. After just a couple of hours, Heidi completely transformed the room. She rearranged all of the furniture, decorated my bookshelves, and set up rules for the room (kid toys are no longer stored in this room – that’s what our playroom is for). She made the room a comfortable living space that we can actually walk through and where we can enjoy hanging out with the kids. Because of the “rules” and organization that she set up, the room is very rarely a mess, and I am not constantly battling furniture, toys, and books.
Heidi transformed our family room simply by moving things around and taking unused pieces from other places in our house. I didn’t have to buy a thing for the room. She has an amazing ability to pull accessories, art, and furniture from storage areas, closets, and other rooms to set up a nice-looking and functional living space. I am so grateful for Heidi’s expertise and passion for helping to restore the “homey” feeling of our living space. Next project: kid’s playroom! We have our work cut out for us on this one, Heidi!
~Jennifer Garrett, Marietta, GA ~
I am temporarily living in a one room studio and pretty much just packed as much stuff into the space as I could.It was difficult to move around, and had hardly any floor space because of boxes, stacks of papers and other "stuff". After 3 hours with Heidi, I had floor space again and my family couldn't believe it was the same room!! I ended up with a plan and place for everything which made sense to me and the look is more visually pleasing and open.
I'm very happy with the results and have been able to maintain the space with a minimum of re-accumulated clutter. All of this was done by a little video and voice coming through my computer. Since I'm not local to Heidi, it was suggested that we try using Skype. With Skype and my laptop webcam I was able to take her with me into each corner of the room and she was able to give me directions. This remote service worked very well and I was able to dive right into moving things around with Heidi directing. Not only did she show me how to rearrange my space, she educated me in kind, but firm way on how to maintain it.
To anyone out there there with a tendency for clutter or straight up "Piles Disease" like I had, I highly recommend Heidi's services!
"My life has been chaotic the last few years, as a result, our home was completely out of control - each and every room and one could barely walk in the basement! My thoughtful and desperate husband told me to call Heidi. That was the beginning of bringing order to our home and our life! I had few suggestions about the organization and literally walked away and said "do whatever you can", even left home for 5 days. Heidi achieved no less than a miracle with what she had to work with! I came home to a beautifully organized home. I recommend Heidi to everyone who needs some sanity in their cluttered world. I trusted her fully and am so grateful I did. The bonus is that she became a wonderful friend to our family. Thanks Heidi!!"
"I referred Heidi to a client who was selling their vacant home. We needed to stage some rooms, as well as update some rooms with paint. Heidi facilitated the staging, and also chose all the paint colors for the rooms. Her knowledge and experience made a big difference in how this home shows. I refer Heidi whenever I can!"
"As young newlyweds living in a small one bedroom apartment we were definitely cluttered and clueless! Combining both of our possessions into one household coupled with a tight budget meant that we didn't have systems in place for organization, nor did we have a true direction for our interior design. After finding Heidi through google and reading her fabulous testimonies I set up an appointment.
In just 4 hours she changed the way my husband and I were living. For the first time we had space, we knew where everything was and we started seeing the potential of our little home. She truly did give us our sanity back and has been helping to create a sanctuary for us ever since. We look forward to our appointments with Heidi knowing that each time she steps through the door our home becomes more and more welcoming.
Heidi is a bundle of enthusiasm and energy with a warm and friendly personality. My husband says she's just like a hummingbird and it's so true! We all worked together during that first 4 hour session but it didn't feel like work, it immediately felt like we were just spending time with an old friend. During that first session she helped us accomplish an astonishing amount of work, I am not exaggerating when I say that it would have taken my husband and I at least a week to do what she did with us in 4 hours. She helped us to purge out old items we were needlessly hanging on to and rediscover treasured items that had been buried amongst the clutter and actually use them!
In addition to her amazing organization skills she has a wonderful talent for interior design. As a graphic designer I have a knowledge of color and design but I tend to get impulsive and lost when it comes to decorating my home. Within moments of talking to us she had a list of buzzwords for us to start forming a design around. During our second session we picked out the paint colors and her ability to add depth and drama without becoming over the top is amazing! She's put together a gorgeous palette and style that matches our budget and exceeds all of our dreams. Heidi has truly changed our lives. My husband and I are no longer stressed while at home, we no longer bicker over where things are. We can find anything within moments, and we now have a sanctuary to relax and unwind in. Heidi hasn't just organized our apartment and helped me pick out paint colors, she's made it a home and most of all she's become a friend to both my husband and me. "

"We moved into our home over a year ago, the following Monday I started a new job and work long hours. Then my father suffered a stroke and I commuted to his home out of state for several months before he subsequently passed away. When my life settled down a bit, I finally realized there just weren't enough hours in the day to accomplish all the things I wanted done to transform our house into a home. A few weeks before Thanksgiving I finished unpacking the few boxes we had left stored in our office and dining room; I had books everywhere! Thank goodness I found Heidi - what a blessing! Heidi and I discussed the project over the phone and my husband met her at our house the next day. WOW - I was speechless when I arrived home! I could have never accomplished what Heidi did in five hours! I was so impressed by her work that I asked her to return the very next day! I am not the easiest person in the world to please and Heidi surpassed my expectations in every way. My two tiny toy red poodles Boudreaux and Mudd Bugg loved her too! I'll never struggle for hours on the weekend when I have big home project - I'll be calling Heidi!"
~ Vicky Holmes ~
I am a current client of Heidi's. We have been working together for the past four months and I am not sure what I would do without her. She has been able to come into my house and help me make it a home. We moved into this house about a year ago and then promptly had a number of life stressors that just did not leave us the time or inclination to get our house and lives in order. We also have three small children and I just felt like I was fighting a losing battle. When I met Heidi, I just wanted my dining room table back and she gave me a whole room! Heidi is great because she listens to what I need and helps me devise organizational strategies that will allow me to achieve what I need to to keep my house and life functioning in a healthier and more efficient way. She also works great independently and gets projects done while I'm running around taking care of immediate kid stuff or otherwise. She has transformed my home and the way I think about it. She is genuine and caring and I trust her with my property and my home and feel comfortable sharing my thoughts and concerns. She is very hard working and very efficient. I wish I could see things the way she does. But that is why I have hired her and continued to work with her. She can see rooms and how things will work long before I can and it is great. I hope you get a chance to work with her. I think you will find that it is worth your time and money.

God is truly directing your path! I have grown & been inspired by your presence. My house is beyond my greatest expectation. I had no idea the capacity of your amazing talent! I will probably end up seeing you on HGTV one day. It was priceless the first day you worked, and completed decorating 3 full rooms! My husband was sure we had went shopping, when you simply had utilized pieces I already owned. That in itself is a testament to your master design abilities. I can't express into words how you have helped give my life back to me, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually!"

I just wanted to tell you again what a wonderful job you are doing for me. You have truly changed my life and I am forever grateful! You have a wonderful gift and are very blessed to know what it is.

"Hi Heidi -
Thank you again for all of your help last month with my new house. You really helped me pull everything together by utilizing what I already had and helped me to keep my costs down. Since the housewarming party I have had so many compliments about my place and I owe it to you. Your design concepts were extremely helpful and I appreciated your quick results work efforts.
Through my experience working with you, it has stimulated my own decorating thoughts and I look forward to working with you again. Thank you again!"

" When I gave direction on the organization of my office, I simply said: "Could you tidy it up a bit"
I had no idea how untidy my office had become. I had no idea the nature of my office had become a monkey on my back. I found that I spent less and less time in my home office because of it.
Another example of how my life was out of balance, my office had become such a "catch all" that the work I needed to do seemed to be so much more of a challenge.I work often from home and found that I would take my computer to a different room.The responsibilities of my job, combined with an untidy office, often made the work at hand, much more daunting. When Heidi finished with my office, I felt a huge sense of accomplishment.My work seems more easy to manage. In fact I'm more motivated to get the work off my desk to maintain the order of my new office. Yes, my new office! Taking what I already had and making it new. New in design. New in feel.It has given me energy and I look forward to the peace in my office, not the anxiety I felt before.Order by Design is much more then making a space more tidy or attractive.It can change the energy to be one that is positive and not negative.And the importance of positive energy, especially in your place of work, cannot be measured.Thank you Order by Design. Thank you Heidi, for helping me be more as a result of your work and talent."

"I just wanted to say how grateful I am that you came on such short notice and stayed until we had completed the project. I appreciated your many helpful suggestions and think that the house is looking even better now that you have touched it and us. I look forward to working with you again."

“Before you came, our basement and garage were places where we threw things and shut the doors quickly to keep them from falling back on top of us. Finding something in either location was an adventure worthy of Indiana Jones! Now, everything is pristine, we have more room than we ever knew we had and we can find items at the drop of hat. We’re not even embarrassed to leave our garage doors open any longer! Thank you so much, we are extremely pleased! Everything looks terrific. You are a miracle worker Heidi!"

"It was my lucky day when I was introduced to Heidi & Order By Design, Inc. during my recent move. There was NO WAY with or without my six year old twins that I could tackle, with such grace and efficiency, such an overwhelming project! I had 15 years worth of stuff to sort through, eliminate, and re-organize (a lot of it being organized for the first time ever) – after packing and unpacking into a new home. Within days Heidi had my new house feeling like a home and functioning as it should. I can see and use everything I own. I can find what I need and I didn’t know that my closet could look this good! My home is now beautiful and inviting – not something I could have accomplished on my own especially with limited resources and time. She has been well worth the reasonable investment I made, utilizing her time and expertise. It is with great pleasure and gratitude that I recommend her to anyone interested in taking advantage of her many talents. When it is time to do more decorating, organizing, and shopping, I will consult with and utilize Heidi before I make a move."

I have every confidence that she will do nothing but exceptional work for her clients."

"With my busy lifestyle as a musician I am only home a few days a month. When I moved I was overwhelmed by the amount of work that needed to be done just to set up my one bedroom to make it livable. Heidi was able to come to my home and settle my life and get me organized in one day! It was a breath of fresh air and a load off my mind!"

"I would like to write and thank Heidi for the wonderful job she did in my home. I had requested a seasonal wardrobe exchange and storage but I received so much more.
With complete professionalism and expertise, Heidi brought out my winter things, packaged and stored my summer weights. It was done in such a efficient way, I found that not only will I be able to gain access to my wardrobe more readily, but much more creatively, expanding ensemble possibilities I had not previously envisioned.
As a bonus, her organization was so skillful, I found I had far more storage in the same, original space.
The additional suggestions and modifications made with art placement, and tabletop decor, only served to heighten a smooth transition to a new season. I feel excited and prepared for Fall and Winter! Consider this company already retained in the Spring for my next Seasonal Transition!"
