This style, which originated in Japan, serves to emphasise essence. It does away with the unnecessary, helping chaos to disappear and providing space for calm. A nice inspiration that encourages you to experiment — by adding your own twist you can easily create your very own minimalist style!
Match your colours
When you think about minimalism, you instantly think of white, grey, anthracite and black tints which, at first glance, radiate little emotion. But there’s nothing to stop you adding a nice colour accent — whether that’s a contrasting bright colour or a softer pastel colour, the choice is yours and anything is possible! Try not to overdo it though, choose one tint and a few objects
. A decorative cushion, rug, painting or vase is ideal and will help your colour element to stand out in the room.
Play with light
A minimalist interior helps you to feel calm and draw energy. The lighter colours of your walls reflect light from outside, giving you a natural element of light inside, so don’t block your windows, just let the sun in!
A mixture of shapes
Another way to play with the minimalist trend is to look again at your interior elements. With a sleek and orderly style, you can play with abstract shapes
. An upright lamp with a smooth design combined with a square coffee table — you can do that!
Your furniture where you want it
As the minimalist trend gives you more space, you can arrange your furniture in all manner of ways
. If you’re the kind of person who likes to try out new things from time to time, it will certainly be your thing! You can change the way a room looks entirely by just moving one piece of furniture.
A floor that keeps you warm
Is everything a bit cold for you? You can remedy that by simply choosing the right floor. Choose a colour that exudes warmth and adds comfort
to the rigidity of the minimalist design — it will make coming home all the more pleasant.
