Now I understand my problem -I've got WAY too much stuff. Even though family & friends tell us how uncluttered our house looks to them, my husband and I constantly feel like we need to declutter. After seeing your idea book, now I get it. Thanks for the pictures and words.

I love these rooms; I just don't see most of them as being minimalist. I don't think minimalist should look "cozy" and "warm." It doesn't have to be sterile but more in that direction. It should look like there's not much to cleaning it ; )

Even though this article was published in 2011, it is still relevant for 2017. Nice article Pangaea. The point is exactly that, Minimalism get's the misconception of being sterile and it doesn't have to be. Minimalism is built on the principle that less is more and that each object needs space to be appreciated. "If everything is important, than nothing is important."
