5 Functional Items for the Minimalistic Home or Office

10873901266_86266d2b6f_z

Minimalism is growing as a movement, and more and more people are becoming attracted to the minimalistic lifestyle for good reason. There are several reasons why minimalism is so attractive in today’s society including: a growing concern for the environment, a lack of trust in the current economic status (from the worldwide financial turmoil to personal debt), and a feeling of increased global social awareness of injustice and poverty.

Modern aesthetics experienced a large growth in the 1960s and 1970s, and these same principles continue to govern modern design. Here are five functional items that can help create your home or office into a minimalistic workspace to offer you a more productive lifestyle:

5 O'Clock Wall Clock

5 O’Clock Wall Clock

Also affectionately known as the “working man’s clock”, this clock will help remind you when you can get off of work. Perfect for the office, the 5 O’Clock Wall Clock keeps you on track and can help make your work go faster. Due to its quartz movement, it only functions on one AA battery that is included, and is easily replaced. This is also an excellent gift to give your friends at work.

Verbarius

Verbarius Clock

If the 5 O’Clock Wall Clock is too confusing for you, try this handy Vebarius clock instead. The Verbarius clock makes telling time simple and easy with words and phrases instead of numbers. This is the perfect clock for your office or study room at home. The little black box will show messages such as “midnight” to “fifty-five minutes to eleven p.m” to keep you on track in whatever task you may be doing.

The clock comes preloaded in English, German, Spanish, French and Russian, and you can easily add in any other language through the USB port.

Bin Bin Waste Basket

Bin Bin Waste Basket

The Bin Bin Waste Basket is designed by John Brauer and has won several design awards including the Good Design Award, the Red Dot Design Award, and the IF-product Design Award. It is shaped like a crinkled paper and comes in black or white. Whether you put this in your office or home, it will be a great addition to the room and can bring character and class.

Conceal Bookshelf

Large Conceal Shelf

This Conceal Bookshelf is the essence of minimalism. Not only does it hold an extremely functional element in storing your books, it also hides its use so that it seems like there are simple a stack of books floating on your wall. The invisible bookshelf will not only allow you to organize your office or home so that it looks clean, it also has a sense of style that cannot be missed.

Mr. N LED Lamp

Mr. N LED Lamp

This compact table lamp not only works as a lamp but also is a beautiful sculpture that will sit perfectly in your home. Whether you use it as a nightstand, desk or simple a decoration, you can control the lighting by a quick touch. This beautiful lamp has won both Interior Design’s Best of Year Honoree 2013 Product and Spark Awards 2013 Bronze Winner.

Having this in your home will be a highlight and people may comment that they recognize this Mr. N LED Lamp from the first episode of the television series, “Better Call Saul”. You also will receive a cloth to clean it as well as a free mini LED rotating joint clip book light when you order.

Daisy Loving in Your Life: April Flower of the Month

As April is quickly ending, what better way to continue celebrating the warm weather and new life with the April Birth Flower, the daisy.

Daisies are cheerful and colorful, symbolizing childhood memories, pure innocence, and a sense of simplicity and joy. These are an easy plant to grow in our garden, and come in a variety of colors. If you do not have a green thumb, there are plenty of ways to embody the daisy spirit in other ways. Here are some ways you can bring some of these vibrant colors into your life:

White

White is a staple color that automatically can brighten up a room. It works as the perfect backdrop for any other accent color. White is so commonly used in modern spaces because of its fresh, neutral look. Paying attention to the white space can help you relieve stress and unnecessary worries in your life. If your home or workplace is already busy with other colors, try adding some white accessories to balance it out for a calm, refreshing new feel.

blomus muro

You could try a faded gray stainless steel MURO Magnetic Board (comes in sizes from XS to XXL depending on your preference). The magnetic board will also help get your life in control by allowing you to place everything that is important at the moment in one place.

Shades of Yellow, Red, and Purple

Colored daisies stick out in a field of daisies with their bright, shining color. From shades of yellow to pinks, reds and purple, daisies come in all sorts of colors. Adding a pop of yellow into your home or office is like placing a few rays of sunshine in a room.

Lumisource Psychedelic DeskOf course, you can always stick to adding smaller snippets of color with some artwork on the walls, accessories such as pillow cases and decorations, or a colorful, daisy-themed centerpiece.

The everlasting beauty of the daisy flower does not have to fade away when April ends but is a great source of inspiration to take from all year long.
