You’ve probably heard the term ‘minimalism’ thrown around a bit lately – but do you know exactly what it is?
In the world of interior design minimalism is a clean, organised look. One of the best things about minimalist design is that you must get rid of the clutter, to showcase beautiful furniture, flooring, window dressings and artwork.
Minimalist colours are usually muted and monochromatic. White is the most common colour, but soft earth tones such as beige, taupe, tan and grey are also used. To keep to the minimalist style but still create an impact, different textures take the place of variation in colour.
Minimalist design has become a popular style choice for the home simply because it works. The approach is so simple that with a bit of thought and planning, anyone can achieve it. There are some easy things you can do to create a minimalist style in your home such as using calm colours, having mostly clear surfaces with only few, well-selected décor items and choosing window dressings that help soften your home.
