the kitchen
When trying to create a minimalist home, one of the dificulteis we face is how much we should keep and give away! It's easy doing it with clothes and shoes, but when in comes to common spaces, we have to think about different aspects and not only our needs. Sure I could live with only one plate and one set of silverware, but I like to entertain friends and family.

When I moved to my new home I had to buy everything new, so I had the opportunity to only bring into my home what I really needed. And it was actually easier than I thought. In this post is what I found out to be a good quantity of pieces to have in my Kitchen, I haven't needed anything else beside what I have now, so it's working out very well. 

Bellow you can see everything I keep in my Kitchen, this is for me and my boyfriend, but it will still work fine in families with 3 or 4 people.

  4. Olá Sophie!
    Vim agradecer a tua visita no meu site e visitar o teu cantinho! É muito bonito, bem clean e elegante :-) Também achei a tua cozinha muito convidativa. Tal como tu também não tenho microondas (não o achei no teu post!). A única coisa que tenho a mais que tu é um faqueiro que o meu marido adora (apesar de ele não usar!), uma vez que tem significado para ele!
    Passarei por cá mais vezes! Um beijinho grande e todo o carinho do mundo para este teu projecto lindíssimo!

      Obrigado por visitares o meu cantinho, também gosto imenso do teu apesar de ainda nao ter deixado la a minha marca :P
      Na verdade tenho microondas, e forno, ja vinham com a casa, por isso nao os considero meus pois não os posso remover e levar comigo, mas talvez deva adicionar isso no post! Foi uma coisa que nem me lembrei.

      Passa sempre que quiseres =)
      beijinho,
      Sophie.

  5. Olá Sophie, adorei sua cozinha! Chique e clean!
    Estou longe de conseguir deixar a minha assim. Já destralhei muito mas o problema é que quando casei ainda não conhecia "vida simples" e "minimalismo" e comprei muita coisa para o meu enxoval. Resultado, muita coisa dentro de casa e hoje vejo que não faz sentido ter tanta coisa.

    1. A pouco e pouco voce vai conseguir acredite !
      Se comprou muita coisa para o enxoval ppde sempre oferecer a quem precise, ou dar para caridada ou ate vender :) ha sempre soluçao!
