Minimalist home décor has been popular for decades – from the stark, industrial styles of the 80s right through to the current ‘clean girl aesthetic’, we’ve always loved clean lines and subtle shades in our homes. And although it’s had many makeovers through the years, the concept of the minimalist home remains the same – simple, neutral and clutter-free.
The concept is a classic, but the minimalist aesthetic has had an update recently. Modern Minimal is a new interior trend that combines the core ethos of minimalism with elements of industrialism and Scandinavian style. Think warm woods, clean lines and a palette of soft grey and off-white. Gorgeous!
Here’s how to get the minimalist look throughout your home.
Get a minimalist aesthetic in the bedroom
The key to minimalist home décor in the bedroom is to keep a sense of warmth and cosiness running throughout. The cool grey tone of this bedding is softened with the white stripe detailing – pair with warm wood furniture with curved lines like this modular wardrobe unit.
Match those curved lines seen in minimalist furniture with your accessories – a round mirror like this is perfect, and you can look out for wall art with similar shapes.
Get a minimal aesthetic in the kitchen
The kitchen can be a busy, hectic place, so introducing some minimal aspects can help create a sense of calm. Keep it simple with textiles in natural shades, like these checked cotton and linen tea towels and these washed linen napkins. Your tableware should have a handmade feel – look out for uneven shapes and natural glazes, but keep it uniform by sticking to a single colour.
If you’re looking for a bigger upgrade to your kitchen space, a glass-topped dining table will create the ultimate clean line and give a light and airy feeling that carries through the room. Pair with mid-century style light wooden chairs to finish the look.
The best way to create the minimal look in your living room is to clear out all clutter. Starting with a blank canvas means you can introduce carefully considered accessories and textiles without just adding them to the existing items – remember minimalism’s core concept of ‘less is more’! A well-chosen lamp like this domed style and some softly textured cushion covers will add warmth and stop the space looking too bare.
If you’re in the market for a statement piece of minimalist furniture, this chunky wood TV stand will create a stunning central focus point in your living room. Accessorise with a stoneware vase holding dried flowers and a citrus candle to layer up the look.
With these simple updates to the timeless minimal interior style, you can transform your home into a clutter free oasis of calm and light. And if you want to go a step further, why not do a little decorating, too? Off-white walls make the perfect backdrop to the Modern Minimal trend, and the shade works wonderfully everywhere from kitchen to bedroom.
