I like to believe that I live a fairly minimalist lifestyle. In the last couple of years, I've gotten a lot of questions from friends who are intrigued by the allure of minimalist living spaces. Some like to ask how many pieces does a person have to own to be considered a minimalist, others are curious if I sleep on the floor or if I own everything I need—the truth is, there's no specific answer. 

For me, minimalism isn't about the number of items in your possession, rather, it is being surrounded by things that make you happy. While I know this way of life isn't for everyone, there's no denying that looking at clean spaces can give you a well-deserved mental break! Check out these photo pegs and enjoy a few minutes of peace: 

The goal of minimalism is to be able to own and showcase items that bring back good memories or set your mood right. Instead of buying a separate centerpiece for your dining table, consider gathering your favorite knickknacks and putting them on a tray to make an interesting vignette.

Minimalist decor doesn't always have to follow a monochromatic scheme. Feel free to play with color—just don't use one too many as it will defeat the purpose of having a clean aesthetic. Pastels and neutrals or different shades of cool tones pair well together.  

Contrary to popular belief, minimalism doesn't require having a specific style. You can experiment with different types of decor and designs and still be a minimalist! Maintain a streamlined space with wood furniture and neutral-colored accessories.  

All it takes is one glance at this black-and-white beauty to inspire you to declutter your own closet. If you enjoy wearing punches of yellow and blue, you can organize your closet by color coordinating everything—it will be just as mesmerizing to look at, too. 

Create a bedroom that's perfect for rest and relaxation by using different tones of gray. This in-between hue is a great compromise between black (which can look too bold) and white (which can be difficult to maintain) but it's just as chic.
