“Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication ” – Leonardo da Vinci
The minimalist interior design had a lot to explore for me several years ago. And today I want to share my basic ideas and principals of this kind of Elegant modern design.
The Minimalist Interior Design is sophisticated combining clean lines, up-to-the-minute designs and high-tech technology.These interiors are stylishly sleek and minimal with the slogan “less is more” is the main emphasis for decoration.
To get the best minimal look, for the walls choose a neutral base colour in white or light tones of either cream, grey, or taupe. For accent colours, choose hues in different shades and tones to your base colour.
Furnish interiors with coffee tables, lamp tables, occasional tables, cabinets, sideboards and dining tables in gloss or satin finishes with minimal decoration.
Choose sofas and chairs upholstered in natural textures in neutral tones. For a luxurious touch, add a chair or small sofa in a bold accent color.
Dress windows with stylish curtains in neutral tones in plain fabric or with a minimal pattern. For a sleek look use white muslin draped to the floor. If you prefer blinds, choose a neutral tone to match your base color or white.
Select flooring that is finished in neutral gloss tones. Go for large ceramic tiles, wooden flooring or plain neutral coloured carpets.
For the main lighting, choose downlights or cove lighting. Add soft ambient light by placing table lamps and standing lamps in the room for use as task lighting.
You can also use your own ideas. The key is function and minimal look you need to achieve. You need to focus on form, color, and texture and that will be all. Have fun with your design!
