I've been thinking about relaxation lately. I'm not sure I'm very good at it! Yes, I do my share of lazing around, but do I ever let my mind completely relax? Do I ever let my body truly unwind? Sometimes I think I should force myself to simply be, just spend a period of time with no electronics or even books or magazines or other distractions and see what happens.

This gorgeous, minimalist home in Dorset, featured on House to Home, seems blissfully free of unnecessary extras. Don't you think you could do some great thinking -- and clearing of your mind -- in a place like this?

  1. yes, if it were a matter of getting clarity and clearing the mental clutter, this would work.

    i somehow fell off the wagon, and started getting stressed, i'm back on track now.

  2. I'm a lot like you (as far as relaxing goes) and this might be too minimalist for me but somewhere I NEED to visit!

  3. Taht is a beautiful house!! I would love to visit too! I agree, it'd be a little too minimalist for me to live in, but I love it nonetheless!
