Quality Not Quantity
It can be easy to get carried away when you are designing a new home. You need to be careful, however, as this can lead to a space that looks cluttered and busy rather than chic and sophisticated. Invest in a few key pieces of furniture that best represent the look you are going for, such as the home furnishings by Fendi Casa, which is a good balance between function and aesthetic. While minimalism is essentially a reductionist movement, choosing to invest in a few good quality pieces will ensure that your furniture or furnishings last for a long period of time as well as eliminating the need for additional adornments, as well as cutting costs of replacements.
Make The Most Of Nature
Plants and flowers are a minimalist designer’s best friend. Leafy plants, small shrubs, and carefully placed flowers can bring a sense of calm and simplicity to space and reduce the need for additional furnishings. Nature lovers can bring part of their passion into the home, and make a room both minimalist and personal. Don’t go overboard with your plants, however, and avoid looking cluttered with too many plants and flowers. As mentioned before, it is important to stick to a theme, and with plants, this might mean choosing a particular plant family and choosing plants or flowers that have a similar color palette.
The Art Of Camouflage
You don’t have to completely eliminate everything that you feel might not be on a theme or fit in with the look of your home, particularly if it’s important to you. Saving space and energy is an important part of minimalism and using your space and storage wisely can allow you to include most of the things you need or want in your home. While a television isn’t technically minimalist, hiding it away in a sliding cupboard or camouflaging it by placing it into a subtle wall space can reduce the impact it has in a room. The best way to hide unsightly cables is to either build them into the wall or paint them the same color as the wall. Using your common sense when deciding whether it is worth getting rid of something or simply camouflaging it.
