Minimal/Minimalism. What does it mean to you? Does it say white walls, wooden floors and wide-open French windows? Does it look like block sofas, strong architecture, muted colors and patterning? Minimalism doesn’t have to mean choosing simple, boring or inexpensive furniture and accessories. Simply meaning ‘less is more’, minimalism can help focus your room on your desired mood or theme. Paint it pretty, with a row of pink couches set upon a white floor. Make it dramatic, with a striking beige and white line halving your room in two. Find substance in simplicity with these modern minimal designs!
White, eggshell and wood need not be boring. Making frames on the balcony and bookcase beyond, wood lets in light both from the outside world and LEDs within. Dining cubby chairs mirror their lines with their legs, while simple futon sofas provide a place to rest. Want a little more contrast? These beige futon sofas, ottomans and chairs provide warmth beside a gramophone, baskets and log bench in darker shades. An electric fire brightens the atmosphere.
Create more room by hollowing out furniture. This minimalist living room does it well, with lifted sofas and cabinets, a white ringed chandelier and an opposing mirror reflecting the view. Muted coloring allows space for potted greenery. Make scenery a key part of your interior. The wide-open windows and sheer chiffon curtaining of this monochrome space open up a wall of hanging creepers and manicured hedges. Metallics in circular pendants and a sofa add flair, while a tiled floor in marble lines it with luxury.
Looking for more character? This funky lounge is a great example of pop art minimalism. Surrounded by white walls and simple wooden floors, a retro cartoon, 50’s swing back and bright turquoise couch provide visual stimuli.
