Life edited.

Graham Hill is the founder of and, and gave a TED talk about his theories on living a life with less stuff, leading to more happiness. His business began when he built his 420 sq ft NYC apartment, which can house two guests overnight, a dinner for 12, and a home office.  And while small spaces are still the cornerstone of his tenets, it is his urge to pare down belongings that really resonates with me. 

His 3 steps:
1. Edit ruthlessly.
2. Think small.
3. Make multifunctional. 

The idea of a curated home is something I can support. Being intentional with the items that come into my space. Just another opportunity to practice mindfulness. Though I'd have to add a visual component to my own criteria. I've always appreciated the mindset of William Morris: "Have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful or believe to be beautiful."
