The new minimalism

In part, the new minimalism is a kind of cultural aftershock of the 2008 housing crisis and banking collapse. At the same time, minimalism has become an increasingly aspirational and deluxe way of life.
Minimalism is easily transformed from a philosophy of intentional moderation into an aesthetic language that depicts high-end interior spaces.

MORE IDEAS FROM THE SAME ARTICLE

True minimalism is not about throwing things out, but about challenging your beliefs in an attempt to engage with ideas as they are, to not shy away from reality or its lack of answers. 

  • The minimalism of things argues that getting rid of possessions means ridding yourself of trouble. 
  • The minimalism of ideas means stripping away excess to see that the world is more troubled and difficult, and more wondrous and full of possibility.

Many people have minimalism forced upon them by circumstance. Poverty and trauma can make frivolous possessions seem like a lifeline instead of a burden.
