Understated, pared-back spaces are the hallmark of the Minimalist!
Achieving a minimalist interior design is all about refining the essentials and editing out anything superfluous. The goal is to create a functional and comfortable space that is also stylish and chic. To achieve this look, focus on key pieces that will make a statement and leave out anything that doesn't contribute to the overall aesthetic. By streamlining your interior design, you can create a space that is both refined and raw.
So, what are the essentials for creating a successful minimalist interior? Understated decoration, pared-back furniture and simple colour schemes are key, as is ensuring that every element in the room has a purpose. By paring back your belongings and only keeping those items that you truly love and use daily, you can create a serene and ordered space that is a joy to come home to.
When it comes to choosing a colour scheme for your walls, think simple and calming. A monochromatic scheme of different tones of the same shade can work beautifully in a minimalist room, as can using just two or three colours throughout. If you’re not sure where to start, consider using a white or neutral base and adding in one or two accent colours that you love.
As for furnishings, less is definitely more when it comes to achieving the minimalist look. Opt for simple shapes and designs in muted colours and avoid anything too fussy or ornate. Textures are also important in creating a minimalist interior. Incorporate different textures through your fabrics, rugs and accessories. This will add visual and tactile interest to your space.
And finally, don’t forget the all-important finishing touches. A few well-chosen accessories can add personality to a room without going over the top, so go for items that you love and that have sentimental value. A beautiful vase or framed artwork will add interest to a room without detracting from the overall look, so choose wisely and enjoy creating your very own haven of calm.
