Our story

Tara Scott, founder and lead organizer, has a background in architectural history and preservation, historic property appraisal and house flipping. Tara has always had a penchant for all things neat, organized, and aesthetically pleasing. Her first revelation came when she organized the pantry at the age of 8 and realized that it looked good and made cooking and shopping easier for her parents.

She founded The Edited House in 2014 to bring the same joy that she gets from uncluttered, beautiful surroundings, to clients and their homes.

Love the "new" office - thanks Tara! So much more organized and such a clean feel - much more productive!

Tara was so easy to work with, and there was  absolutely no judgment from her.  She is kind, warm and she has such a calming presence. Now I am so happy every time I look at my closet!   It has saved me so much time getting ready in the morning!


Tara helped me organize my pantry.  I am actually cooking more now because it's so much easier and faster since I know exactly where everything is.

Tara organized my closet and it has made an incredible difference in my life. Tara did not pressure me at all, and she patiently talked me through items that I was not sure about.  It was so much easier than I imagined  it would be.

Tara works quickly and charges a fair price.  She clearly loves her job and is so passionate about her work.  She is so creative and has such amazing ideas.  I wish I had found her sooner!
