Cary Telander Fortin - New Minimalism
Cary Telander Fortin - Author Talk & Workshop
Tuesday, July 17, 7 p.m.
The decluttering craze meets a passion for sustainable living and interior design in this gorgeous new book, published by Sasquatch Books (Seattle, WA).
This book promises an opportunity for self-reflection and lasting change, by getting to the bottom of why we've accumulated too much stuff in the first place, therefore allowing us to transform our lives.
Professional decluttering and design team Cary and Kyle of New Minimalism will take you through every step, from assessing your emotional relationship to your stuff to decluttering your home to then turning it into a beautifully designed space that feels clean and tidy without feeling sparse or prescriptive. And all of this without filling up a landfill. You'll find resources and strategies to donate and reuse your stuff so you don't have to feel guilty about getting rid of it!
CARY TELANDER FORTIN specializes in the psychology behind decision-making and attachments, as well as connecting with new organizations who can benefit from clients' donations. She graduated with honors from Dartmouth College with a degree in psychology. Together as NEW MINIMALISM, Cary and Kyle Quilici have conducted hundreds of decluttering sessions and as a result they have donated over 10,675 cubic feet of clothing, art supplies, furniture, and decor to local charities; that's the equivalent of over 427 bath tubs.
