Get the look: Minimalism

The concept of minimalism is something that holds many people in its thrall - as the world gets more complex, we seek to pare back our lifestyles and seek the uncomplicated.

 

When it comes to interiors, minimalism can refer to two different aspects of design – space and colour. However, if the idea of a white room with sparse furnishings doesn’t appeal to you, don’t fear; there are ways to create a minimal look without surrendering all personality.

The first question to ask when adopting a minimalist approach is, ‘What’s important to me?’ Choosing only essential furniture and meaningful accessories is a great place to start, while seeking out simple but beautiful fabrics and wall coverings can help to form the basis of your look. When limited in terms of colour and physical objects, materials can be a wonderful way to add interest and personality to your space.


'Minimalism is not the act of stripping a space of its character, but instead highlighting those aspects of its character which resonate the most.'

A minimalist aesthetic can seem difficult to achieve, but with the right storage, textures and motifs, it’s not impossible to create the uncluttered look you’re seeking. You can start small, by stripping out any overwhelming or unnecessary features to leave little pockets of space throughout your home, or be bold and take everything away, adding back in only what you deem to be worthy.
