Max Out with Minimalism


If you never read “Walden” in high school you’ve probably at least heard the phrase, “less is more” a thousand times in your life. In design, this expression describes the technique of creating the greatest impact through the simplest measures. By eliminating unnecessary décor and relying on the interplay of space, color and restraint, you can create a simple, yet inviting, living space.

Keep it Bare

The key to proper minimalistic décor is knowing when to dress up a space, area or surface, and when to leave it alone. If you have a visually striking element in your space, such as beautiful cherry wood floors, a stunning brick wall or stone surface, don’t rush to cover them up. It might be tempting to adorn these spaces with artwork or rugs, but doing is unnecessary. Instead, allow the visual texture of these surfaces to take center stage as the focal point.

Keep it Bare

Let Your Furniture Breathe

The number one rule in minimalism is to simply reduce the amount of décor. A room cluttered with furniture and objects can feel cramped. In areas such as the Family Room, look for opportunities to substitute sofas with smaller seating options like chairs or an ottoman to create more space. Using the bare minimum not only reduces clutter and opens the traffic flow, but creates breathing room for the furniture and makes each piece more special.

Stand Out

Stand Out

If you’ve got a particularly interesting object – captivating artwork, unique accessory or intriguing piece of furniture – give it the attention it deserves by amplifying its contrast with other objects in the room. You can direct focus visually using space and color. For example, if you have a chair upholstered with a beautiful fabric, set it apart from a busy traffic area to really allow it to stand out. Or, offset neutral or monochromatic colors with a bold, vibrant accent piece to create a tantalizing focal point.
