Ah, The Simple Life

Blame my self-diagnosed OCD. Or blame my subscription to Real Simple magazine — but I’m totally feeling a minimalist feel in my home. With this said, I’ve collected all the tchotchkes, picture frames and junk which usually clutter my coffee tables and surrounding furnishings and stowed them away for now. Even my nightstand is void of anything with the exception of my lamp and alarm clock. 

And you know what? I love it.

I’m finding a profound sense of beauty in really clean, barren spaces. It’s funny because said stark surroundings make me feel neater, more composed, more Zen and, in effect, like I’ve got my shit together. So, yes, an office desk void of bric-à-brac makes me feel more at peace.

So if you, too, feel like you’re “drowning” in a sea of stuff, it’s time to purge. You’ll be pleasantly surprised with the profound sense of elation one can feel by the mere sight of an empty end table. Promise.

    Most definitely! I am completely in de-clutter mode! My knew motto is “Keep it simple, stupid!” 🙂
