How to create a minimalistic interior?


Choose neutral shades for the decoration of the room (walls, floor, ceiling).

Don’t use more than three colors in one room.

Give preference to laconic, maybe one-color furniture.

Refuse from too fashionable and bright decorative elements.

A minimalist interior can be diluted with interesting textures, for example, you can use a large-knit blanket as a bedspread.

The most important rule of the minimalist style is not to overload the interior, so use the minimum amount of décor items.

For instance, you can change decorative elements in your home every season, but always adhere to the rule “the less the better.”
