Curating Simple Spaces: Win a £50 OKA Voucher

How do we make our living spaces happier and healthier places to be?

In one word: simplify.

There’s no need to get bogged down in ideas of modernism and minimalism – a focus on decluttering, design and common-sense simplicity is the best route to a happier home.

Design is not difficult. It’s just about orientating each room in the home to maximise its strengths and utility. If there’s furniture that isn’t used, remove it. If there’s natural light that is wasted, change the room to make the most of it.

It may sound obvious, but fostering the perfect pattern or process for how to best declutter your home is a fundamental consideration – and one that we all often disregard.

Take your dining table. The heart of the home, but so commonly the immediately convenient dumping ground for the flotsam and jetsam of everyday life. What’s the best way of tackling this?

Luxury furniture experts OKA have created a four-point plan to simplify your spaces, and would love to see the fruits of your own interior design labours.
