Q: What does a minimalist home look like?
A: Whatever a minimalist wants it to look like.
Minimalism and simple living mean different things to different people. For some, minimalism simply means not owning a lot of stuff. For others, it might mean living simply in a small space where everything is multi-use or foldaway. And for still others, it might refer to a spare, modern style of interior design.
There are many ways to be a minimalist. Your home can reflect a minimalist aesthetic (sleek lines, bare white walls...) but it doesn't have to. If you enjoy living simply and with only things you love, there's a great variety of ways your home can look.

4. The Professional Minimalist
Check out Joshua Fields Millburn's (of The Minimalists) home (for his family of three) right here via his blog. It's enough to make any minimalist sigh in admiration, or mutter "OCD!" jealously under her breath. Or is that just me?
5. Minimalist Home Tour
Here's another video tour of another minimalist home from "Sharayah Simple." I like that it seems, perhaps, more realistic than the others with the baby gear and the artwork.
