Now This is a Minimalism Lifestyle Goal I Can Totally Get Behind...

I recently came across this house on Small House Swoon.   

When I looked at these photos, I felt exactly like Richard, the first time he sees Elise's portrait....




(You don't actually have to watch all four minutes of this.   Just making a point about love at first sight).



Seeing these photos makes me want to ring the doorbell, and tell whoever answers to get out of my house, because clearly, THIS IS MY HOUSE.

This house is located somewhere in New York.   My guess is the Hamptons, because, really, is there anywhere else where you'd find a beach house like this in New York?   Dunno.   Doesn't matter.   This house would be enchanting anywhere.   The beautiful, clean lines, the minimalist aesthetic, the graceful staircases...

The bedrooms exude a sense of calm and peace...

My guess is that this is someone's vacation home, and not someplace that is lived in year-round.   My home is lived in year round.   It isn't a beach house.   My furniture is different.   My color palettes are different.   My lifestyle needs are different.   Everything is vastly different. 

But I am totally on-board with this clean, minimalist look.   Looking at these photos makes me want to make a clean sweep, purge everything that I don't absolutely love, treasure, use, or value.   I am going to reference these photos, again and again, as I work my way through my home, and declutter.

It's the idea that I'm after:   the clean, open spaces, the flow of light through the home, the way every item is useful, and beautiful, and thoughtfully placed.

Seeing these photos made me realize:  everything I'm working toward, with the KonMari Method, and Joshua Becker's Uncluttered program.... to me, this is the ultimate, physical representation of what was, until recently, a sort of undefined concept.  


Now I see with great clarity:   I want this in my home.
