Focusing on simplicity can bring the ultimate elegance to your living spaces. If you prefer the uncluttered, zen-like beauty of a clean space, then minimalism is for you. Some people may see minimalism as boring. Far from it! With a little patience, time, and thoughtful curation, minimalist decor can, in fact, be even more captivating than using expensive centrepieces or a cacophony of colors. Here are few tips for incorporating a minimalist style into your home decor:

Get rid of all the clutter

Not only does clutter look ugly and unmanageable, it can be a huge source of stress in your home environment. Creating a minimalist space can help you get rid of clutter to create a streamlined and stress-free environment. The best part is that purging as much as you can and the artfully concealing the rest of your possessions can help create a space that is ideal for family relaxation. When your surroundings are neat and tidy, you will also notice a surge of harmony in your domestic relationships!

Use color sparingly

Believe it or not, how you use color can greatly enhance the minimalist look and feel of your home.  An overly bold mix of colours and textures can create an imbalance and add to the visual clutter of your space if you are not careful. Instead, stick to one or two colours to keep your decor seamless and minimalist and to reduce the associated visual clutter. Monochromatic color schemes can look trendy, elegant and lend a zen-like minimalist atmosphere to your home. In such monochromatic spaces, a thoughtful incorporation of textures can also help draw the entire space together as a seamless whole. So, even if you don’t use a variety of bold colours, you can play with textures to add visual contrast and highlight areas of interest.

Keep the Balance

In minimalist design, a little embellishment can go a long way in creating focus and interest. It is important to keep everything visually balanced and pleasant.  Building out items like pillows, wall decor, utility items, even furniture to create a balanced cohesive canvas can work wonders for your space. Picking the right focal point such as a favourite rocking chair or sculpture from which every other item or element radiates out can add both drama and elegance to create a powerful minimalist space.
