A mother-of-four is keeping her sanity intact while at home amid the intensifying COVID-19 pandemic by rearranging her space and ‘deep cleaning’ it from top to bottom – with envy-inducing results.
Interior specialist Ashlee Durand, 32, organised each room of her country Victoria home with meticulous precision after thoroughly sanitising every inch of the property to protect her young family from coronavirus.
Ms Durand’s styling has attracted hundreds of fans after she shared photos of her immaculately organised home in an Australian parenting group on Facebook.
‘Taking this time to fine tune my organisation and give the house a deep clean,’ she captioned the images which show a spacious home decorated in a grey, white and baby pink colour scheme.

Her pantry is neatly stacked with clear jars and preserving tins, all carefully labelled to explain what’s inside
What are the products Ashlee swears by for a tidy home?
* Dyson’s stick vacuum: She said she uses this two or three times each day.
* KOH’s cleaning products: Ashlee said she uses these everywhere.
* BI CARB AND VINEGAR: Ashlee uses this to clean out the dishwasher, washing machine and her kitchen sinks.
The pantry is neatly stacked with clear jars and preserving tins, all carefully labelled to explain what’s inside.
Cutlery and utensils are slotted into white and marbled pots, while kids’ sized bags of popcorn and crisps are laid out in trays emblazoned with the word ‘Snacks’.
A basket filled with clean tea towels and ceramic pink jars filled with coffee, sugar and tea are arranged on the kitchen counter.
Even behind closed doors, drawers and presses are arranged with precision, with plastic containers housing cleaning sprays and mesh boxes holding carefully rolled cleaning cloths and dusters under the kitchen sink.
The bathroom remains uncluttered with hair, beauty and tanning products stashed neatly in boxes beneath the wash basin.
The master bedroom is filled with pristine white pillows and plush grey throws, while a small personal organiser with compartments for pens, notes and personal documents hangs from the side of the perfectly made bed.
The colour scheme is only interrupted in the children’s bedrooms, which are playfully decorated with polka dot wallpaper and their names emblazoned beside their beds.

Despite her seemingly lavish interiors, Ms Durand previously told Daily Mail Australia she only buys clearance furniture and household accessories from discount retailers Kmart, Target, Big W and Adairs.
‘I never pay full price for anything. You can save hundreds by doing this and there are always great sales on and brilliant clearance items,’ she said.
She also trawls Facebook Market for unique artwork and one-of-a-kind fixtures.
