I'm a minimalist and my wife comes from the school that you have to have shit everywhere. Way overdecorated. We just moved into our new house which is more than twice the sq ft of our old one and for now it is amazingly uncluttered. We've agreed to move slowly with the decorating and I think she's convinced for the time being that it's a much more calming atmosphere.

Now, these houses always belong to people of means (not necessarily always rich per se but cetainly well off) - seriously, is it normal for wealthy people to just not have a lot of personal possessions in their homes or do they have alot of personal possessions which are just kept out of sight (eg in large warehouses or scatrered in multiple properties)? Is it a case of fewer possessions but much higher quality/more expensive possessions?
Yes it is a case. It is really hard to get a cheaper one with high quality.

Do they have fewer possessions? No.

But ... they often have more and larger homes in which to put their possessions

I have clients who are nudists. They have a very private (several thousand acre) estate in Napa, and if ever I arrive early for a meeting (I know the various gate codes and they say not to bother them) they are usually sans pants ... sans everything except their geogeous selves.

They are never bothered by my arrival. They gradually excuse themselves and return in something "country club" casual for the meeting.

Rich people are eccentric. Poor people are crazy.
