Most people are familiar with the concept of minimalism. Minimalism started as a movement in the 1960s and 1970s to protest capitalism and the largely Western belief that “more” brings happiness. Minimalists rejected mainstream living and instead embraced the simple, elegant, and functional. The idealism of minimalism is that fewer things and fewer material possessions allow the person to focus on true joy and serenity without distractions. Thanks to many pop culture books, podcasts and TV series, we are starting to see minimalism grow in popularity.

Benefits of minimalist design
Many people who choose to follow the minimalist path report a sense of calm and peacefulness while in their homes. Celebrities like Kim Kardashian and Gwyneth Paltrow and Oprah have opted for basic interiors, as an escape from busy lives. Having less can certainly feel like a sacrifice at first but it can also give you the space and freedom to unwind.
