If simplicity is an art, then Dominique Loreau is a master. Having lived in Japan for many years and inspired by oriental philosophy, Dominique Loreau discovered the beauty of a life well lived through the art of simplicity. Her lifestyle rests on the principle of 'less is more' and imbues all areas of existence, from the material to the spiritual.
She captured her philosophy in the groundbreaking L'art de la Simplicité, which was a massive best seller in her native France and is now available in the English language for the first time.
Simplify your home, empty your wardrobe, abandon compulsive purchases, eat more frugally but better, take care of your body and mind. From the art of feeling well in your home to the art of feeling well in your body, this compelling and elegant book will transform your life and take you on an empowering journey to happiness.
You will feel energised, more confident and free. You will discover the essence of being truly alive and how to live a more centred life. One full of real pleasure, clarity and satisfaction.

loved the book and it has a beautiful philosophy really looking forward to any new books that the author has written
This begins well, with some great tips for simplicity and frugality. But does descend into a dictatorial diet regime by the end which is a little tired and uninformed.
Sanctimonious drone about all the things one "should" do but next to no guidance as to how simplicity can be achieved on a practical level. Decluttering is a time consuming activity, and many of the other dictates suggest redecorating, changing furniture etc This all costs money, and goes somewhat against the grain of living a simple life.
I read this book together with Spark Joy by Marie Kondo. They complement each other.
I'm now trying to live more simply and more organized.
