Urban Order is an independently owned professional organizing business based out of Austin, Texas. Our services focus on the thoughtful decluttering of spaces to make them beautiful and functional using practical, and realistic, organizing methods. Beyond that, Urban Order makes every effort to dispose of clutter responsibly-- recycling, reselling, and donating as often as possible. Our services also extend to downsizing assistance, garage sale coordination, and upholstery service coordination.
For founder Karen Vilches, organizing has always been a great source of happiness and an intuitive skill. She received her Bachelor's Degree in Art History from the University of Texas at San Antonio, with a focus on Latin American Colonial painting and sculpture. Karen relocated to Austin in 2012 to begin a career in textile sales, where she was first introduced to the design community in Austin. After learning more about small business management, consulting services, and professional organization, she officially founded Urban Order in 2016, and hopes to help Austin tidy up, one happy home at a time!
Karen enjoys working one-on-one with women who feel overwhelmed, unexcited, and burdened by too much "stuff" and a lack of organization in a specific area (or areas) in their home or office spaces. She focuses on thoughtfully decluttering their problem areas, then resetting these spaces with simple, customized storage solutions to make them look beautiful, feel functional, and support harmonious living.
