Kristen Ziegler lives in a small town house on a quiet, narrow street, and inside her home there aren't many things.
Ziegler, 31, a minimalist and the owner of Minima Organizing & Redesign, recently purchased and renovated her 1,020-square-foot brick home on Parkwood Avenue in the Fan. As a first-time homeowner, Ziegler experienced the trials and tribulations of a renovation, while simultaneously putting her minimalism philosophy to work.
In late February Ziegler purchased her two-bedroom home built in 1920 with the idea it was going to undergo a small-scale renovation. One thing led to another — a wall was knocked down, flooring was ripped up and soon she found herself without a kitchen, and spending more time and money than she had anticipated. In early August her home was finished, and she invited us in to see how she lives simply in her newly renovated and sparsely decorated space.
