In Minimalism

A Lovely Minimalist Apartment in Germany

I’d really just like a little fence or a wall around the bed, but I like the sleeping on the floor idea.

Futons on the floor ROCK!

I tried lying down on a bed and it was just too soft and high for me. I can’t give up my futon.

I just like all the ivory, white, cream, ecru and wood. So open, fresh and airy.

It also has a lot of storage space underneath the bed.

Am my own Sugar Daddy. Am a millionaire at 36 after getting out of $60K of student debt in 18 months, a little over a decade earlier, using I have worked 50% of my career (taking 1-2 year breaks), and quadrupled my income within 2 years of graduating, going from $65K to $260K with an average lifetime savings rate of 50%. I have 11 side incomes that are on track in 2020 to make me $50K - $75K. I could retire today if I wanted, but love my work-life balance as a freelancing consultant in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math). I am all about balance - between time and money, and also enjoying my money. I also post daily on Instagram @saverspender.

    Well you could do it and just have a futon on the platform instead of a mattress? It is very clever.

    Did you ever see the old Wikihow on living like a minimalist – a 6′ shelf across a room under a window to use as a bed, seating area and table and storage below for futon and such… I don’t think it’s online any more but I found it really inspiring at the time and this reminds me of it, though less multifunctional. It listed “minimal” possessions right down to an envelope as a wallet – extreme but hey!

      I am actually afraid I will fall off when I roll around. Baby Bun rolls around A LOT for instance, so I’d never put him on a platform…

    It’s beautiful! I love the light and airy feeling.

      I’m aiming for something similar when we get a place. An open, uncluttered space with very minimal furniture

    Your link is broken but I found it:

    That is a beautiful apartment, clean and orderly. Love how nothing is overwhelming. I wouldn’t mind living there! Plus it seems like people actually live in it and cleanup/organizing would be fast. I also like the wood they chose.

      I updated the link, thank you!

      I really like light, airy spaces. That one really fits the bill for me. Very Swedish 🙂
