My personal goal in life is to achieve my full mystic form in the most Millennial way possible: with cats and minimalism. Don’t get me wrong, I love Hello Kitty and Pusheen, but I love all cats equally.

I thought I’d share some fun ways to cover your home in cats, stylishly.

Find great inspiration through art and pop culture. 

This is one of my favorite prints, it’s by Tobe Fonseca and features kitties as the Joy Division album cover, Unknown Pleasures. It’s simple, memorable, and cute, and people will think you’re cool and cultured… pop-cultured, that is.

Start small. Get things that look subtle.

If you’re not too ready to commit and don’t want the burden of being “branded,” find small and distinguishable items that embody YOU as a cat lover. I recommend understated and subtle pieces that express “catluvah.” Mugs and trinkets are a great way to start.

Now actually cover your home with cloth that has cat or cat-like things.

Get bedsheets and mix them up with other kinds of neutral bedsheets for a sophisticated and clean look. It will appear effortless and chic at the same time.

Get nice, minimalist, and cat-friendly furniture to compliment your cat themed items, and your future cat.

It is generally a good idea to get furniture that is comfortable, doesn’t get ruined easily, and fits your “aesthetic.” Obviously this isn’t my cat, but it looks good in a sleek and sculptural Eames chair.
