MY MINIMALIST APARTMENT
The minimalist apartment from the minimalist filmmaker.
Hi my name is Matt D'Avella, I directed Minimalism: A Documentary About the Important Things, and this is my minimalist apartment.
I share the space with my not-a-minimalist-partner Natalie. We take a lot of intention to ensure we're both happy with any new addition to the apartment.
Take a look inside our apartment (we won't think you're creepy).
We don't have a lot of furniture so we're intentional about each piece we bring in.
We'd prefer to buy something we love once & have it last for as long as it stays together, rather than replacing cheap furniture every couple of years. The faux-fur blanket & British pillow were both Natalie's idea (all hail the Queen).
I'm a bit of a neat-freak so I took some extra steps to make sure our electronics were stowed away. I put both our router & PS4 in the lower portion of the whiskey cabinet and used a white HDMI cable to connect everything to the TV. You can barely spot the cable in the photos.
I usually don't hold onto anymore books than this. Once I've got 10 I start to give them away to family & friends. Or if it's a bad book I drop it off at the library.
