Minimalism in a home, makes people think of this:
White, white and more white!
Also, some may think that minimalism always means modern, which I heartily disagree with.
It can be beautiful with lots of bright, vibrant colours.
The common thread in minimalist homes, is that there isn’t a lot of STUFF.
Stuff does not mean there isn’t personality or colour in the room.
It just means… you have less stuff.
You don’t have 20 chairs you don’t use, you have the 5 that you do.
You don’t put decorations everywhere just for the sake of decorating as a way to please others.
Here are some inspirations I find to be fairly minimalist:
(FYI: In some pictures, I’d like to remove all those vases, flowers or extra knick knacks….)
Love love love this one.
It’s colourful, but it’s got a lot of space, useful mood lighting and a good cohesion.
This is a wonderful example of something more traditional and full of glamour, but still minimalist.
Decals or pictures on the wall seem to be a running trend to add style and colour without bulk
Using similar colour accents is also a quick way to add some in a room.
But my ultimate favourite green living, minimalist space with lots of vibrancy has to be this gorgeous McGregor apartment in New York City done by Apartment Therapy.
The bed folds away so a massage table can come out (they’re masseurs), and everything has a place and a purpose.
Not a single inch has been wasted!
