The New Simple

The New Simple

How do you define simple living in the 21st Century?  The June issue of Elle Decoration is dedicated to the pursuit of a simpler life, and I think Editor-in-Chief Michelle Ogundehin is spot on when she says that whereas in the past this may have meant relinquishing modernity and a great deal of self sacrifice, this approach is no longer realistic, nor remotely desirable, for the world we live in today.

Instead, she offers these four modern day mantras…

  • Surround yourself with treasured things.
  • When buying new, buy only what you love.
  • Live a life replete with experiences, rather than one just packed with things.
  • Make it all count by consciously making the most of every moment.

The new simple.
