Books to Inspire Minimal Living


Minimalism. The word alone has a calming cadence and mantra-like character. Don’t get us wrong, we like a shirt with a fun print or stacked beauty-shelve as much as the next person, but there’s a lot to say for a more harmonious wardrobe and home.


The Curated Closet: A Simple System for Discovering Your Personal Style and Building Your Dream Wardrobe | Anuschka Rees

Excuse number one for being late at work: a hellish commute. Real reason number one for being late at work: an early-morning wardrobe crisis. Imagine a world where you don’t have to worry about your outfit, because you only have a few items to pick from. Minimizing your closet is not just good for your pre-coffee wellbeing, but also for the environment. Because of overproduction in the fast fashion industry, billions of pieces of clothing end up on landfill and harm our planet. This book is filled with practical styling, detoxing and shopping tips, all to become a more conscious consumer.
