Elevate your personal style, trim your belongings, and transform your life, one room at a time, with this visionary lifestyle and home organization book from professional organizing expert, Shira Gill.
“Warm, funny, and direct, Shira builds you up while helping you edit down to the best version of yourself.”—Stacy London, New York Times bestselling author of The Truth About Style
As a professional home organizer with clients ranging from students to multi-millionaires, Shira Gill observed that clutter is a universal stress trigger. Over the years she created a signature decluttering and organization process that promotes sustainability, achieves lasting results, and can be applied to anyone, regardless of their space or lifestyle. Rather than imposing strict rules and limitations, Shira redefines minimalism as having the perfect amount of everything—for you—based on your personal values and the limitations of your space.
Now, in Minimalista, Shira shares her complete toolkit for the first time, built around five key steps: Clarify, Edit, Organize, Elevate, and Maintain. Once you learn the methodology you’ll dive into the hands-on work, choose-your-own-adventure style: knock out a room, or even a single drawer; style a bookshelf; donate a sweater. Shira teaches that the most important thing you can do is start, and that small victories, achieved one at a time, will snowball into massive transformation. Broken into small, bite-sized chunks, Minimalista makes it clear that if the process is fun and easy to follow, anyone can learn the principles of editing and organization.
Whether you’re looking to declutter your home, or making big plans to move into a tiny space, this book offers inspiring insights into making the most out of the square footage you have, and turning any space into a beautiful, comfortable, and efficient home.
Around the world people are choosing to live small—whether it’s downsizing from a large home or converting a van into a house on wheels.

Interior design expert Marion Hellweg combines her years of experience with that of inveterate style bloggers to offer practical and innovative advice on interior design; storage solutions; finding adaptable, multifunctional decluttering and organizing; and, more generally, leading a mindful, eco-conscious minimalist lifestyle. Filled with mood board-type layouts that offer hundreds of great ideas, this book does more than offer an architectural survey of tiny homes—it illustrates room-by-room real world examples of how people are adopting a sustainable lifestyle that minimizes things and maximizes quality of life. Inspiring as well as practical, this book is the first step toward imagining and creating your own small happy place.
