I am not ashamed to say that I am a fan of minimalism. I love a clean and simple look, I'm not afraid of having a lot of white or cream in my room. Alas I am not bestowed with a lot of space and since moving back to my parents house a few years back I have been slowly whittling down my flat worth of stuff. My problem is I am an art student, I study graphic design luckily so most of my work can be done on my laptop but I also accumulate many portfolio cases of work and art supplies.
I want this post to be an inspiration to myself and maybe even to others. After watching a few programmes recently on hoarding I have established I am not one, I am ruthless and will throw almost anything out (by which I mean it tends to be given to charity stores or in the shed to be car booted at some point during the fair weather). I've not always been this way, I've had many collections in the past but I've come to realise if I spend so much time worrying about possessions I won't be living life to it's fullest.
I'd like to transform my room into a study space rather than a glorified apartment. I'm going to utilise vacuum clothes cases to keep my jackets and coats as small to store as possible, cut down on the books I keep that I'll never read and use as many storage utilities as possible.
