A Conversation with Clea Shearer and Joanna Teplin of The Home Edit

In conversation with Gen Sohr of Pencil & Paper Co.

SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 12th - 11 A.M. to 12 P.M.

Clea Shearer and Joanna Teplin of The Home Edit started their organizing business the day they met six years ago with a singular dream—combine organizing with aesthetics and share it with the world. Their hope to marry form and function proved fruitful and the duo are now operating organizing branches in cities across the US, are the authors of two New York Times’ number one best selling books, the stars of the Emmy-nominated Netflix series Get Organized with The Home Edit and creators of multiple product lines sold in stores across the globe. Join Clea and Joanna for a casual, in-depth chat with design-maven Gen Sohr, as the two share their secrets for conquering your clutter with their unique brand of interior styling, practicality and humor.

The Home Edit

The Home Edit

California transplants Clea Shearer and Joanna Teplin met when they both moved to Nashville over five years ago. Brought together by a mutual friend, it was friendship at first text, and business partnership immediately thereafter when the duo launched The Home Edit with the goal of reinventing traditional organizing by merging function with design. Since then, they have organized the homes of Khloe Kardashian, Mandy Moore, and Gwyneth Paltrow; built an Instagram following of over five million people, filmed their own Emmy-nominated Netflix series, “Get Organized with The Home Edit,” alongside Reese Witherspoon’s network Hello Sunshine; and released three books, including New York Times bestsellers, “The Home Edit: A Guide to Organizing and Realizing Your House Goals” and “The Home Edit Life: The No-Guilt Guide to Owning What You Want and Organizing Everything.”

A portion of each book sale goes back to support the Antiques & Garden Show benefitting Cheekwood and ECON Charities.
