Well-loved blogger Myquillyn Smith, known as the "Nester," teaches us how to decorate any room of our home starting with what we already have and using just enough of the right stuff to get the unique style we want.
No matter your reason for downsizing the transition can be a challenge. When you're moving a lifetime's accumulation of belongings, the task can seem overwhelming--and so can your emotions. How do you decide what to pack and what to part with? Where will you put the contents of your attic, basement, and/or garage? How can you use the stuff you've got so that it functions well and looks right? This book answers these questions and more. New York decorator Ward is an expert in making small spaces both elegant and functional.

"The clutter filling our spaces impacts on our productivity, stresses us out and keeps us stuck. Or stuff stands in the way of the lives we dream about... Decluttering is great for our mental wellbeing, and when done right, it can be good for the planet too. When we rehome, repurpose or recycle the things we no longer need, we free up existing resources for others and reclaim our homes with less guilt. Less Stuff is a guide for people who find it difficult to declutter and who don't want to see things go to waste. Step by step, you'll explore finding your 'enough', learn how to let go of your old possessions without sending them to landfill, and eventually break the cycle of stuff. The end result is a planet with less strain, a home with more peace and a life with more meaning."--Page 4 of cover.
