Less is more – this credo has become increasingly popular among interior enthusiasts but minimalism does not mean getting rid of any decorative items. Minimalist luxury sticks to this approach with a focus on high-quality materials and elegant aesthetics.
What is minimalist interior design style?
Most people are today familiar with the concept of minimalism, which involves stripping things down to their most basic form. It can be applied to anything from art and lifestyles to architecture and interior design.
Minimalist interior design is very similar to modern interior design and involves using the bare essentials to create a simple and uncluttered space. It’s characterised by simplicity, clean lines, and a monochromatic palette with colour used as an accent. It usually combines an open floor plan, lots of light, and functional furniture, and it focuses on the shape, colour and texture of just a handful of essential elements.
Elements of minimalist design:
- Bare essentials
- Clean lines
- Monochromatic colour palette
Our design trend beautifully captures the essence of minimalist- design. This trend looks to reduce forms and colours to their simplest states, to create airy, bright, and elegant spaces. The colour palette comprises light and soft natural shades such as cold and warm greys softened by aquas and nude tones.
Making a minimalist space look warm and welcoming
Minimalist spaces are instantly recognisable for their crisp, clean, clutter-free and monochromatic look. The de-cluttering of space helps to de-clutter the mind and to create a sense of visual calm. However, some minimalist designs do run the risk of feeling a little soulless. To avoid this, and to ensure your minimalist-designed space also has a welcoming feel, there are a few small touches you can make. Whether it’s a kitchen, bedroom or living space, here are some ways to add warmth and colour to your minimalist rooms.
- Combine different shades and textures
- Incorporate textiles
