March 7, 2016

De-clutter and store smart for a lighter, brighter homeDecluttering at home is not as easy as it sounds. There is a lot of emotions attached to the things we keep and it can feel like a little part of us is dying each time we throw something away.
Years ago, I burst into tears like someone had died after my boyfriend broke my favourite teapot…Does this sound familiar?

Granted, we are very lucky to have a spacious family home which looks quite minimalist since the house renovations but it doesn’t happen magically.
