Minimal


I'm so intrigued by this notion:
She hasn’t even added much furniture; years of moving taught her to go light on possessions. “This was really for peace of mind. I wanted to feel weightless,” she says. “I brought clothes and shoes. That’s it.” There is nothing in her bedroom except for a mattress and box spring on the floor and a TV propped up on milk crates. “…

Part of Vassell’s intention for the space was to fill it only with the bare necessities. “The challenge was to see what I really, truly needed, not buy for the sake of having.”

(but with style added!)

So up my alley. No possessions but still stylish. I love it!

Having just moved from a studio into a one-bedroom apartment, I so understand the need for feeling lightweight and free from too many possessions. There's something about moving that creates the need to purge, purge, purge.

Appealing in theory, but I might start to feel like I was living in a bomb shelter...
