I heart modern minimalist interior decorating. Here are some ideas:
What is Minimalism?
Minimalism is a way of thinking of and viewing the world and the space you live in. “Minimalism is a state of mind,” according to an article by Home-Decorating-Reviews.com titled “The Minimalist Choice.” This state of mind creates order where chaos and clutter exist. This movement began after World War II and continues today. However, today’s minimalism is more relaxed. There are certain characteristics of minimalist design: Everything in a room serves a function, floor plans are open and there is a feeling of order and tranquility.
In order to create a sense of openness and take advantage of natural light, modern minimalist design calls for exterior walls of windows or glass. This open living space is often divided into smaller areas by using bookcases or low cabinets in place of walls. Clusters of furniture can also be used to divide the open space into smaller areas. Fabric is another choice and might be hung from the ceiling to divide or define the open space. Thus, separate living areas are created without the use of walls.
Color and Texture
Walls are primarily neutral and are painted in white, cream, and gray. Bold primary-color accents may be found in artwork that adorns the walls. In order to create the feeling of comfort in a modern minimalist-designed home, the designer uses on sofas and chairs fabrics that have a soft texture, such as velour or microfiber. Plush or shaggy rugs also provide that same comfortable feeling to the space.
Natural light is optimized. Track lighting, art lamps and accent lights are used to augment natural light. Furniture Furniture design is streamlined and is generally done in neutral-colored fabrics or leather. Stainless steel and chrome are commonly used on fixtures and furniture. Lacquer is used on cabinets. The lines of the furniture are usually curved and rounded.
