We start with helping Jane understand and articulate how she thinks a minimalistic home looks. She may have a Pinterest picture in mind with lots of open space, natural light, and a few plants to provide a pop of color, but she lives in a small home with her three children and husband. The house she’s picturing wouldn’t serve her family well. Discussing Jane’s mental picture, what her family needs, and how to mesh these things will help her realize that minimalism needs to look different than the picture in her head. We’ll help Jane develop and write down goals that provide a road map to minimalism to let her know when she’s arrived rather than looking for a Pinterest-perfect home.
