Yumiko Sekine tries to cultivate 'joyful minimalism' in her home. This lovely book is inspirational with its attractive pictures and suggestions for living with the seasons and decorating. It is really better suited to 'crafty' people, however, because of its chapters on repairs and making things. However, it also has chapters which are suitable for everyone, about cleaning out closets, folding items, decorating shelves and arranging flowers. I especially liked the chapter on looking at flowers, with its beautiful pictures of Japanese cherry blossom trees.

I received this free ebook from NetGalley and Edelweiss in return for an honest review. I mistakenly received it from both sites.
