Simplicity is relaxing and very alluring especially to those who appreciate the “no-frill” lifestyle. Pragmatically organized interiors are thus decorated with the motto of “less-is more” utilizing just the right amount of furniture and a keeping to a fluid sense of wholesomeness. Following three simple philosophies that define this style, a minimalist modern decor is can easily be realized.
Function is first – to avoid cluttering and over-furnishing any space, focus on defining the function of every space and every piece of furniture or object within its confines.
Scale and fluidity – furniture should be proportional to their surroundings, decor should be proportional to the furniture and the space around it. The room should have a clear sense of dimensional balance and stylistic congruency.
Focus on quality – minimalism encourages fewer objects therefore it is natural to invest in higher quality elements with durable materials, innovative functionality and unique designs as they will be used more often and will draw more attention to themselves.
Understated details — when it comes to adding decorative touches to the room keep in mind the entire space and reinforce its simplicity with small but essential decorations that add stylistic intensity without screaming for attention.
