We all know that saying, “let go of things that no longer serve you.” This is true. Not just in your personal life or relationships, it is also true when considering your living space. Sentimentals are great. Some items just give us that certain nostalgia that we crave on occasion. However, your emotional attachment to something has nothing to do with your ability to decorate your home. Your home is a space for living, not a space for storage. It may seem as if I’m shooting down your vintage décor dreams, however, minimalism isn’t about taking away and constantly removing, but more about bringing attention to the things that actually matter. When de-cluttering, ask each item one very important question: “Are you adding to my vision, or taking away from it?” Asking that question every time ensures that you are only keeping items that are intentional. Everything must have a purpose.
