Some relatives of mine are quite into the whole minimalism thing, becoming progressively more so over the last few years.

This is what their lounge looks like:

I do love a tidy space and there's no doubt that I would probably feel very chilled if I lived in a space like that but it's just not an obtainable goal with three kids tearing the place apart every five minutes! :lol:

That room would last seconds before my lad destroyed it. :lol:

Exactly - it's like a giant empty canvas waiting to be "customised" in the way that only a tiny mind knows how! :lol:

I wonder if they turned that flower just-so before taking the photo for maximum social media penetration

I bet they have a pure white fibre-optic christmas tree with white tinsel too, the soulless vampires that they are

(sorry if you like these relatives Jen)

A room like that looks lovely and all, but where's the personality? It looks (and feels) like a hotel room. It's all very... bland.

That looks lovely.... I'd like my living room to be like that!

But with a TV and PS4, obvs.

I think I'd like it, more or less. I might be tempted to add a bookshelf.

I would definitely need a few more splashes of colour and technology in there myself but I do like the general vibe they are going for!

Just to confirm that they are lovely people with vibrant personalities! Oh and I think they would probably die at the thought of having a white fibre-optic christmas tree OR, but I must admit I am not aware of what their Die Hard time household decoration is like.

I’m sure they are lovely people but are they the sort that are ridiculously proud of not owning a TV?

They are not vegan and certainly used to own a TV last time I visited! It did use to be where the 'rug armchair' is now though...

I bet they have a compost patch and grow their own vegetables.

That looks strawberry floating miserable, like a bleached flower.

Why does minimalism often mean beige or white? :?
