Here’s How to Start Living with Less

Home Downsizing Tips & Resources | Apartment Interior Design


Are you looking for home downsizing tips and how to optimise your apartment interior design? It’s no secret that apartment living is becoming more and more popular in Australia. Many people prefer an urban lifestyle close to infrastructure and amenities. As a consequence, they are downsizing to smaller houses, retirement resorts, or (studio) apartments for various reasons: saving money on furniture, appliances and energy, gaining more time for travelling and hobbies, embracing a lifestyle with less stuff and fewer chores to worry about, or starting a new chapter of their life.

By providing these home downsizing resources and interior design tips, I would like to encourage you to make a decision and get started. It is really all about trust and embracing the opportunities that arise when you step out of your comfort zone. One of my yoga teachers once said: “Challenge yourself, you deserve it.” I often think of this phrase when I am facing a difficult decision or starting to procrastinate a particular task or conversation.
