'Alongside the hygge vibe is the whole declutter, buy less, minimalism idea of living more simply. Marie Kondo had us all chucking and rolling, and to follow is this beautiful book by Erin Boyle that gently steers us along the path to less and how to live in a simpler way. Filled with personal essays, projects and helpful advice, Simple Matters shows that living simply is about making do with less and ending up with more.' --Bill's restaurant

So inspiring and a great read .
The decluttering in my home has already started and I haven't even finished the book .
I never find the time to review my purchases but this really deserved one !
It gives such a feeling of calm and peace to read and has really made me think about future purchases, buying natural materials, avoiding products with masses of packaging and other small tweaks. It does have a little sense of ‘whatever you do, it won’t be enough because people are still buying plastic tat’ but it’s kept to a minimum. The photography is lovely and calming. It makes you want to eat more asparagus from simple hand-thrown plates on your rough-hewn wooden table with linen cloths.
I wouldn’t use it as a manual for decorating (she is very fond of wooden crates, which to me just look messy, and her child’s room is terrifically sparse with an overhead bare lightbulb which surely isn’t what a babe wants to see when it’s lying on its back all the time), but the spirit and ethos of the book have stayed with me. I could read it a hundred times and still be inspired.
*I received an ARC from Netgalley, the review is my own, honest opinion*
