We now have baby #4, and I have been on both ends of the spectrum of baby gear. We have filled our living room with “must have” baby items we rarely used. At another point, I made my life needlessly difficult by getting rid of stuff for the sake of saying I didn’t own a particular item. So I’ve sought to find a balance of just enough baby items: making our possessions work for us, instead of either owning or eliminating something because someone else says we have to.
A small wardrobe of carefully chosen, quality pieces that I love has been one of my favorite parts of minimalism. I only purchase items that match my color scheme, fit well, and are friendly for the baby/young child stage of life we are in. I’ve tried to do the same with home decor. I wanted to match the vintage style of the woodwork and include my love of botanicals, and have only kept items that are beautiful, useful, and practical.
Thank you for sharing Elisabeth! ❤️

When you are thinking about becoming minimalist, the whole point of it is to keep true to your authentic self. What is important to you, the things you enjoy and the life you want to live.
I’m excited to share some real-life examples of what minimalism looks like in different homes around the world.
