I love organised space and a sense of order or control regarding my environment. Another part of me - I am like you - multi faceted, likes stuff. Not naff junk or stuff for the sake of stuff but a cozy (gezellig in Dutch - more on that later) amount to make my space a true reflection of the life I have lived thus far. Most things, besides the functional in my home, tell a little bit of my life story. Whether it is particularly interesting or not is redundant, it is mine. For me that is home, yet still organised and user friendly.
Now, second answer - YES! but I must confess, more the philosophy behind it is what appeals to me. I realised this after watching a Ted talk by the Minimalists. Check out their link, you'll be intrigued.
Now, back to gezellig. I first heard this word when I was visiting a tres bonne amie in Amsterdam. It is a Dutch word that is basically untranslatable. I think that is really the beauty of it, to appreciate the word itself you must be open enough to embrace the idea of the word. Here goes - cozy but so much more, it also describes certain feelings of well being. I like this explanation best:
It can apply to so many things, people and experiences and give you a warm, fulfilled vibe at the same time.
Let me know what you think, I am dying to hear from you.
