Minimalist Mentality

This week, I’d like to feature a great article I read that not only holds true to the typical mid-century modern look, but goes deeper into how clutter at home can clutter our minds. This is a tragic story with a happy ending, and I hope you are as inspired by it as I was.


About midcenturyobsession

My love for midcentury surfaced after inheriting a couple pieces of my very fashionable grandmother's MCM furniture. I'd always loved clean lines...and became obsessed. I'm currently in the process of redoing our entire home in Mid Century style. My husband would tell you "She's off her head." (Irish-speak for NUTS.) I am the wife of a Dubliner, a mother to an adorable little boy and two clownish french bulldogs Pig and Pearl. I graduated with a Bachelor's Degree in Criminal Justice. If there is anything I learned earning my degree, it was that I didn't want to pursue criminal justice. My heart just wasn't in it. I played 2 years of volleyball on a full scholarship and graduated a 4 year college in 3 years. I lived in Dallas for a very long time and left friends behind to be closer to family for my son. A native Californian, I have to say it's great to be back home.

  1. Thanks Brooke. You know what a frenzy I have been in with all the cleaning. I want to keep going so this is excellent inspiration!

  2. Simplify. Do it! I believe living essentially out of your car for a few months between multiple houses really can change your world! If you can’t fit it in the trunk of an Accord, then get rid of it. 🙂 Love the article.
