The 5 Secrets to Pulling Off Simple, Minimal Design

A minimalist décor is to remove clutter from your home and thus creating peace within the mind.  So, the first step would be to declutter & organize. The trick to minimalism is the ability to get rid of what you don’t really need.  The best way to do this is take everything down from shelves and tables and analyze what you have. Try to group things in threes and analyze what works together & what doesn’t. So, get ready to part with what you don’t really need, tuck away what you like and showcase those statement pieces you love.

Creating  or buying wall units is a great place to begin.  Storing everything behind doors or within drawers is the best way to minimalize.

When creating a minimalist design style, you may want to choose a neutral color palette. Too many colors can make a room feel extremely chaotic. This doesn’t mean that you must stick to just beige or white. There are a lot of great options such as a muted greys or barely-there creams.

When buying furnishings think  straight lines and minimal pattern. Keep it simple, don’t buy into busy fabrics with patterns. You want to keep the colors calming to the eye and mind.

Try to stay with the same color tones when adding layers or objects.  A great trick is finding textured pieces which is a great way to also add visual interest.
