What people are saying
"The authors of New Minimalism reveal how your emotional style relates to the possessions you keep—and how you can finally get past it."
“This is minimalism for the rest of us…[a] more practical take on the less-is-more lifestyle [that is] more about ending the cycle of “busy” than creating a perfect house.”
—The Washington Post
"Part therapy and part interior design, it’s just the thing to dive into as we seek inspiration for calm and order in the new year."
—San Francisco Chronicle
"Fortin, who holds a degree in psychology, and Quilici, who studied interior design, have developed a system based on self-examination that is designed to aid those endeavoring to eliminate too many possessions. ... Using these guidelines may finally provide the means necessary for those struggling to live a clutter-free life."
"Cary Telander Fortin and Kyle Louise Quilici—decluttering professionals with backgrounds in psychology and interior design—delve into why we accumulate so many things, and they offer practical, easy-to-adapt strategies for decluttering and changing habits."
The decluttering craze meets a passion for sustainable living and interior design in this gorgeous new book, published by Sasquatch Books (Seattle, WA) and distributed by Penguin Random House (NYC).
This book promises an opportunity for self-reflection and lasting change, by getting to the bottom of why we've accumulated too much stuff in the first place, therefore allowing us to transform our lives.
Professional decluttering and design team Cary and Kyle of New Minimalism will take you through every step, from assessing your emotional relationship to your stuff to decluttering your home to then turning it into a beautifully designed space that feels clean and tidy without feeling sparse or prescriptive. And all of this without filling up a landfill. You'll find resources and strategies to donate and reuse your stuff so you don't have to feel guilty about getting rid of it!
