The allure of minimalism.

The bf and I moved house over the weekend. No matter how organised you are, moving is always horrific and this time around we weren’t organised at all. Because it was a break lease, we needed to hold off getting another place until new tenants were found. As I’ve previously mentioned, the unit is a shizhole so it took weeks to find someone in a desperate enough situation to put in an application. They wanted to move in within the week, so we only had a few days to secure a new rental and vacate. We were able to find a place at the last minute, but on Monday morning my ex-property manager informed me that the applicant had pulled out an hour before they were due to sign the lease. So in spite of our best efforts, we’ll be paying two rents until another applicant is found.

The icing on the cake? I’ve now got the flu and am pretty much bedridden. But I’m staying positive. The bf is bringing all my meals to me, and I’ve effortlessly acquired a delightful set of dreadlocks I may decide to keep. Plus, the new house is light and bright and modern and has loads more storage. It’s also bare, as I just don’t have the energy to unpack all my lovely house porn. So in-keeping with the clutter-free state of my home, I’ve pulled together a few shots of modern minimalist spaces that tempt me to forgoe unpacking altogether and attempt the single-childless-petless-scandinavian-textile-designer vibe for a while. Just don’t ask me where I’ll keep my keys.
