Less Is More
This style is not just about design is should also be considered a way of life.
The idea of modern design is to subtract everything that is unnecessary. Designs are straight lines and simple geometric shapes, rooms are decorated with few objects, neutral colours and the results are the cleanest and most functional layout as possible.
White, cream, ivory and even a lighter shade of grey are the advisable colours to suit a minimalist atmosphere. The main objective is to make everything very light and clean, giving a feeling of lightness to the room.
The minimalist style also borrows some elements from Industrial Design and Scandinavian – it is quite common to find items typical of these styles in a minimalist room, such as colours only in some decorative elements and the presence of natural materials like wood and leather.
