Meet Enid Zoe Dormeus of Zoe Lemon Home in Echo Park

Today we’d like to introduce you to Enid Zoe Dormeus.

Thanks for sharing your story with us Enid Zoe. So, let’s start at the beginning and we can move on from there.
I have always been into keeping things in their place and always find myself organizing and moving things around in my apartment for them to be most functional and minimal. I was working as an event coordinator before the pandemic happened (another form of organizing-but with events) and I ended up getting laid off. I wanted to be productive during all this free time I had at home and began thinking of and executing my own organization business. I feel that a space in your home can be a reflection of your mind, so I wanted to help others declutter their space so they could declutter their mind. And along came Zoe Lemon Home. The name? Well, my middle name is Zoe, and the lemon part came from a brainstorm session with one of my friends. On HGTV, when a home is staged for buyers, there is always a bowl of lemons or fruit placed on either the counter or island of the home. I then googled the meaning of a bowl of lemons and the result was all the confirmation I needed: So, I launched my website and have started booking clients. Due to COVID still lingering, I also offer virtual sessions where I can help clients organize their homes with suggestions & recommendations. I can also walk them through how to sort out through items they may no longer need and want to get rid of.

Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
With the pandemic still being an issue, it hasn’t been as ideal with home visits as I would want. Things are starting to get better now and I can see myself visiting more homes, so I hope to see an incline in clients in the near future.

Also, with many people losing their jobs or surviving on unemployment, they are not be able to invest into my services at the moment.

I plan to visit more businesses and advertise my services with flyers so I can get word around that Zoe Lemon exists. Just social media isn’t enough.

At the moment, Zoe Lemon Home is a “one-(wo)man-band” and I am doing everything on my own, but when business progresses, I plan to grow a team.

Alright – so let’s talk business. Tell us about Zoe Lemon Home – what should we know?
Zoe Lemon Home is a home organization business. It is an in-home service with also virtual sessions available. We make client’s homes functional and organized by helping them declutter and organize their spaces, using items they may already have at home and repurposing them.

We do all kinds of organizing (kitchen/pantry, fridges, freezers, cabinets, drawers, bedrooms/closets, garages, nurseries)- any space that you need help organizing, we can do. We are known for repurposing spaces and items in your home. For example, bins and baskets that you may have just sitting around at home will be repurposed to organize something! We also take pride in not having to use expensive organization products to get a beautiful and organized home. There are a lot of trays and bins that don’t have to come from a high-end store to look good.

I am proud of the company actually guiding the client through the organization. Of course, we do the work but we take pride in teaching our clients (and even the little ones) on how to maintain a space organized. Everything has a home and returning it to that home will be beneficial.

We also encourage the client to participate in deciding what items they want to get rid of or donate. We help them through the decluttering process by asking them questions so that they can decide the item’s importance based on their answers. And organizing also doesn’t mean you have to get rid of everything you have, it just means making sure everything has a proper space and is kept in a functional manner.

I think that those differences right there will set us apart from another organization company.

Any shoutouts? Who else deserves credit in this story – who has played a meaningful role?
My husband, Edward Dormeus deserves credit for listening to all of my ideas and encouraging me to execute them and making them a reality.

I have also admired the ladies of THE HOME EDIT company. I don’t know them personally, but their organization skills made me appreciate my own and encouraged me to start Zoe Lemon Home. I have followed them on social media since they started their business and I one day hope to be as successful as they are.
