“Dear home, I still feel frustrated and stressed about you…” says Jia from China in the report.
We can all do a little every day to embrace the trend and lead life more sparingly. We spoke to Tabitha Krygsman, Interior Designer at IKEA Australia, who suggests the following ideas and tools to get you started on a road to less in your life.
“Minimalism is a tool to rid yourself of life’s excess in favour of focusing on what’s important – so you can find happiness, fulfilment and freedom.”Joshua Fields Millburn & Ryan Nicodemus
In the bedroom use a combination of open and closed storage. The PAX wardrobe has a great timeless look. It holds all your clothes and shoes and has different sized compartments for you to customise your storage options with the PAX range interior organiser – KOMPLEMENT.
Alternatively hang hooks and rails behind doors so you have a place to drop off your jackets and drape your shirts. The ENUDDEN Hanger hangs over the top edge of the door without any screws, perfect for renters, an enables you to convert unused space into storage. Similarly, the SVIRA hanging storage is all you need for a mini wardrobe – simply hang it in your wardrobe or on a freestanding rack!
