When the world is so hectic and full of things the desire to live with fewer material possessions can be attractive. Hawes & Co agents in their everyday work see some fantastic minimalist homes, some people even choose not own a car or TV, but not having things is not really the point. Minimalism is a tool that can assist you in finding freedom.

That doesn’t mean however that there’s anything inherently wrong with owning material possessions. The modern problem seems to be the meaning we assign stuff: we tend to give too much meaning to things, often forsaking our health, our relationships, our passions, even our personal growth. Minimalism as an idea might simply help you to make better decisions about these things.

There is no better place to start than in your home, one project Designed by UK-based studio Extravagauza promotes a style as a unique combination of aestheticism and functionality, which they call ‘Attractive Minimalism’. Their approach has its origin in a fascination with simple, minimalist forms which are enriched with luxury elements attractive to the human eye. A subtle extravagant touch acts as a blank canvas for other features. A focal point becomes a cozy bed upholstered with high quality, soft fabric enriched with two asymmetric lamps giving the space unusual and exciting look. Their color palette is simple but elegant, as they try to create an environment that pleases the senses without causing distraction or irritation. It’s a start.
