Everyone has their own unique personal style that we help them to uncover. It’s a timeless style that transcends “trends”. We do not judge others homes because each home that falls into the cozy minimalist realm, is unique.
Most people can’t dedicate a shorter time frame to purge most of their clutter. Whole home purges are larger purges, but still manageable. In order to become a minimalist, you will need to do (at least) 3-4 whole home, major purges. It all depends on how much stuff you have.
It’s like peeling an onion… but a sweet onion.. that won’t make you cry.
There are certain decorating guidelines that are handy to know. They are the difference between a home that looks intentionally decorated and a home that looks cluttered or thrown together. These are the decorating fundamentals.
This is one of my favourite things about Cozy Minimalism, you can decorate in any style! I have even featured boho rooms and farmhouse rooms because they can be minimal and decluttered too!
I call this the Layers of Cozy. You start with the basics, the furniture in a cozy arrangement centered around a focal point. You add the first layer, the second layer, the third layer and if you choose a fourth layers. These layers consist of wall decor, area rugs, window treatments, blankets and pillows and decorative accessories.
I am a strong advocate for color within your spaces. Even though white is the “trend” right now, I’m looking to get you longevity with your spaces. If you choose colors in your home that are meaningful for you, and you carefully select colors that you love, they will be timeless.
Making the everyday use items (that need to be accessible) look beautiful and a part of the decor. We often run decorating challenges surrounding functional decor on our facebook page, join in!
Life is too short to be angry, I want to put a smile on people’s faces, to be a light on a dreary day so I inject some humor in almost everything I do. Our community encourages and supports each other and I love you all for that!
