For those of you looking into the modern minimalist city lifestyle, this article will discuss some of the must-haves to begin this new chapter in your life and why they are not only clever but also chic in their design.
It’s nearly 2019 and you have this desire to remove the utter clutter from your life. Perhaps it’s leaving the job that’s been stressing you out since day one or buying a new car that doesn’t take ten years to heat up before the winter season—or maybe, it’s your bedroom.
The truth is that the average person spends nearly half their day in their home either sleeping or doing household chores. This means that half of your stress may be stemmed from the place you call home. So how do you remove this stress? According to some experts, the Japanese minimalist lifestyle is the answer.
