Maybelle on minimalism
Designer, illustrator, and calligrapher Maybelle Imasa-Stukuls shares a one-closet, 740-square-foot home with her woodworker
husband, Greg Stukuls, and their dog, Kiki. Both Maybelle and Greg design for Stumasa, a furniture store in San Francisco.
Her advice for living minimally:
Think ahead If you don’t love it or need it, don’t bring it in the house.
Continually edit Especially your book collection and your closet. Maybelle keeps a “to donate” bag in her car for regular clothing purges.
Recycle magazines Tear favorite ideas and recipes from magazines and store in folders.
