Live (and Decorate) Like A Minimalist

By: Jessica Stringfield

You’ve heard the old saying “Live like a Local” in regards to visiting a new place and finding those little quirky shops, restaurants and bars that ONLY locals know about. There is something exciting about being included in that “exclusive” group of people that know all the best places. Wouldn’t it be great if you could hang on to that feeling even when you’re not on vacation?

Consider your home. Is your space truly YOUR space? Would someone be able to walk into this space and say “This is SO YOU!” Whether you have a beloved book, art or record collection, your space should say something about you.

Now, does it have to be said LOUDLY? Nope.

Perhaps you prefer that simple, classic look…if so, Ikea’s Limited Edition Collection VIKTIGT  is for you. If you’ve just moved into a new apartment and you’re looking for that minimalist feel, this collection has all the simple lines and color schemes a minimalist could hope for.

Functional and attractive, the collection includes furniture, baskets, rugs, lamps, bowls and more. Win win!

Remember, it takes some discipline to be a minimalist. If you’ve never explored decorating your apartment in this way, do some research and see if it’s right for you!
