"Less space. Fewer things. More life."
This was spoken by a Danish man that was explaining his sparsley decorated home he shared with his wife and three children. It was a lovely place with straight lines and clean surfaces and lots of windows overlooking Copenhagen. And when I finished watching this show I immediately wanted to take a blow torch to my master bedroom, which for some reason is the only room in my house that ends up feeling like a repository of clothes, bags, laundry, and books.
When so many people are "moving up" and building bigger homes with great rooms the size of warehouses I really am satisfied with the size of my home. Satisfied enough to not want to move, even though I wouldn't mind tweaking things here and there. And the "fewer things" issue, not even a real issue for me. I seriously dislike knickknacks of any kind. Clutter makes me jittery. I throw things out too quickly sometimes, as a matter of fact. Just ask my husband. We have nothing in our attic and do not have a garage. Now the issue of "more life"... who couldn't use a little improvement on this one? It is a general statement, but so appealing. Yup, this is one I can be working on.
