There is so much tranquility in having less. One of the challenges of our times is the endless sea of possibilities, all at one click away. We’re bought into the idea that we can have it all and that we should want it all. And, then, you buy, and you buy, because it’s on sale, because it’s pink, because it’s right by the checkout, because your mom hates it, because one day you might wear it, because you’re bored, because and because. And it pills up, taking space in your closets, house, mind, heart.
And then, you’re busy taking care of all this mess. Try emptying out, give it away, sale it, donate it, and only keep what you truly, actually like, what brings you joy. There is so much freedom in having less.
I’ll provide a list of must-haves in a house, that will make it a home which you can actually enjoy. Leading a minimalist lifestyle doesn’t exclude owning beautiful things, it just means being selective about your purchases and only buying what you actually need and truly like.
1. House essentials for a minimalist home – Design lamps
Having the right lamp is like owning that perfect T-shirt that goes with everything and it even looks better washed out. You have it for years, but still you get a ton of compliments for it.
And, when it comes to lamps, nothing is as stylish as a Scandinavian design lamps. It’s like the Nordics actually invented the lamps, that’s how good they are when it comes to spreading the perfect light: above the table, in a corner of the room, or that dreamy, reading light.

Same with the floor. If there is a part or the home decoration where you should invest money on, it’s the floor, and go hardwood. You won’t regret it!
