Functional and practical design elements are the main high-lights of minimalist home. Today home sizes are becoming smaller and you do not need too many objects to decorate your home. For some of the older homes – like in traditional style homes, the tendency was for filling up every inch of the space with something pretty and decorative. But minimalist home design trends do away with filling your home with numerous sundry items.
A minimalist home does not look overcrowded and they are simpler without too large furniture or too many decorative elements creating an overwhelming and overpowering ambiance. Few accent pieces – like accent furniture, accent color or accent decorative elements are used. Simple elements are grouped together in a chic and sophisticated way to create a stylish home decor.
Wall color is always soothing and pastel – in beige or any shades of white. And almost all the furniture is upholstered in matching and complementary shades of pastel or cream/white. Flooring and rug options along with curtains and drapes are again simple and soothing. Display items are not too many and blend well with overall décor of your home.
