National Simplicity Day falls on July 12, all for Henry David Thoreau. Thoreau was a poet, and philosopher, among other things, who believed above all else that life should be lived simply and naturally. Whether you have complex, or simple design tendencies, we could all learn a thing or two from him. Life can seem crazy and fast paced, but you should always take time to relax to simplify things.
Sit Back & Relax
The easiest way to simplify your life, and celebrate Simplicity Day, is to sit back and relax. To create a relaxing environment in your home, start with simplistic furniture. By this, we mean clean lines, solid colors, and simple design features.
Artwork to Ease The Mind
Keep your walls uncluttered and select a few pieces to hang that will bring peace of mind, and to keep the room feeling simplistic. Try using black and white paintings to tie the entire room together, or a simple wall hanging. We love this gold clock that features clean lines. Even though it’s large, the cutouts leave room on the walls.
It’s no secret that the mid-century look is back. Combined with modern design, we have the perfect simplistic look. Modern and mid-century modern have the clean lines that hold a simplistic feel. The original Herman Miller chair is the perfect addition to a formal living room, you’ll have no problem getting comfortable in this one.
The neutral leather on this sofa keeps with the simple design, and also brightens up the room. The coffee table also features clean lines, but is also abstract. This is a great piece to showcase your own flair.
When it comes to keep keeping your home design simplistic, there are many benefits, including peace of mind. A few things to remember on this Simplicity Day is to relax, and clear out your clutter. You can find all of these simple pieces at Avery Lane, right here in Scottsdale, Arizona.
