"Forget the aesthetics of mainstream minimalism and discover a life of authenticity and intention with this practical guide to living with less...your way"--, Provided by publisherWhen Platt set out on her journey to live with less, she just wanted to tame the chaos in her closet. After struggling with the austerity and whiteness of mainstream minimalism, she realized why minimalism often seems unattainable for so many: the emphasis on all-white, barren aesthetics distracts from the practice of living with intention. Here she gets right to the heart of how childhood experiences and expectations manifest in adulthood, the delicate dance between needs and wants, and the complicated weight of familial and societal pressures. Platt presents a radical revisioning of minimalism, one that celebrates the importance of history and heritage, and gives you permission to make space for what really matters-- your way. -- adapted from back cover
