De-coding Minimalist DecorBy Sahana Rajagopal
Decor Tips Tweet 0 Comment(s)
Many people aren’t very clear about the concept of minimalist decor. Minimalism doesn’t necessarily mean plain, dull and boring as a lot of individuals interpret it to be. Minimalists aren’t against displaying prints either and nor do they despise color! The “plain” truth is that minimalists are individuals who prefer simplicity. They are individuals who like an organized and clutter free environment to reside in.
However, compiling a minimalistic décor for your home isn’t as difficult as you may perceive it to be. Here are a couple of tips that may assist you in setting up a simple yet beautiful home:
The key elements: Balance and Proportion
The elements of Design play an important role in our everyday lives and we don’t even realize it. The choice of color for the walls, upholstery and furniture needs to be balanced. An unbalanced room displays clutter which is exactly the opposite of minimalism! Also, none of the furniture should be disproportionate in size or color. The sizes of each piece of furniture should be in accordance with one another, none ‘too big’ or ‘too small’.a
Do not shy away from color
There is a huge misconception that color and minimalism do not go hand in hand which is completely absurd! Color is a part of every décor and even in minimalism it plays quite an important role. Color however needs to be used in a balanced manner. Though the use of whites and grays will be more predominant, the use of color will in fact add a little extra flavor and give a bolder look!
Inclusion of Prints
Prints add life to the décor. Dots, stripes, Ikat or Aztec - use any print that calls out to you. They provide a break from the monotony and using them subtly enhances the look of the entire room!
Quality is greater than quantity
Adding many pieces of furniture in a room, doesn’t necessarily add to the décor. Sometimes, empty spaces symbolize an arena to be peaceful yet powerful. Let the number of items be minimal but ensure that they are enigmatic in their appeal.
Minimalism captures the raw truth that you wish to display to the world. A word of advice to the aspiring decorators, do not be afraid and unleash your hidden creativity for everyone to see!
