Home Design With Minimalism In Mind

With the millions of things happening in our lives, we can all agree that we could use a touch of minimalism. Marie Kondo introduced us to this change in lifestyle through her Netflix series “Tidying up with Marie Kondo,” and the results speak for themselves. Her mantra of “less is more”  proves that it can change the way we regard ourselves, our possessions, and the people we care about. Because this movement is changing lives, we are sharing our take on how window treatments fit in.

Decluttering a decade’s worth of clothing and accessories seems like a project you don’t even want to think about. However, give it a try. Sit back and feel the liberation as you toss away the unnecessary baggage. Less anxiety? Sign me up!
