making the Marie Kondo trend work for YOU!
Marie Kondo, and others with similar ideals about only living with things you need or love, is taking design to a new place. It’s making us really consider each individual piece in our homes at a level many of us have forgotten about. So how does this help you in design? Well, all those people that are ridding themselves of stuff are also donating them for the most part. And this is just awesome! Consider how much less is going into the landfills, but now also, how much more there is to shop for at thrift shops instead of buying new!!
Check online for thrift stores and second hand stores in your immediate neighbourhoods. A visit to a few stores is not only an outing, but also a treasure trove of inexpensive previously loved pieces that may just ‘spark new joy’ for your own home. After all, one person’s junk is another person’s treasure, right?
Let’s all do our little part and remind ourselves there are treasures in the thrift store world. It’s a great place to start.
PS - if you didn’t already know, it’s always been my favourite kind of decorating!
