In the past, I was never drawn to a minimal aesthetic. I found it cold and empty. I wanted to fill my world with things, decorations and colors. But, as I began to simplify and cut back on the excess – my idea of beauty has changed.
For me, it began two years ago when I simplified my children’s skincare. I started by making a bath tea for my baby, and found that I could care for their skin with just a few simple ingredients. Then I started simplifying my home cleaning products, my skincare products… and it has continued spreading from there.
This lifestyle of simplicity is altering my perspective – minimalism now feels fresh, full of possibility – yet the design is purposeful with meaning and depth.
I feel so inspired in these uncluttered spaces – light and free. They don’t dominate you – imposing their own message or emotion. They give my mind room to think, breathe and feel creative… and it all began with making one small change.
