During the course of December, we’ve unpacked major ideas from Marie Kondo’s book, “The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up”, during our #MinimalistMonday series. We introduced the series, talked about tidying up and discussed how to reorganize. In our next post of the series, we want to take it to the next level and examine a few interiors that have achieved the minimalist look we so admire. There’s something so refreshing about this style and it seems to have increased in popularity as of late — in web design, graphic design, fashion, and what we’re most excited about, interior design.
We’re highlighting these interior looks because we believe there’s an intentionality that is necessary within the minimalist style. There’s a difference between simply getting rid of your belongings and achieving a minimalist look with the intelligent use of décor. In other words, you can’t simply rely on the decluttering process and expect the end result to look like some of these spaces. However, that simplification process is vital in order to get to this point, so make sure you read over our other posts before proceeding.
So now you have a blank slate to work with and endless possibilities of how you might fill it again! For some interior inspiration, take a look at the deliberate decor decisions that these homeowners or designers made. These spaces say so much with so little, which is the beauty of this simple style. In the spirit of minimalism, we’re also keeping our words to a minimum so you can maximize your time by scrolling through these gorgeous looks. Let us know which is your personal favorite!
We adore the idea of an exposed closet, particular ones with a more industrial look. This might sound like it is encouraging clutter and chaos, but we happen to think the result is beautiful and unique. Plus the obvious exposure of this closet structure is sure to keep you accountable in the organization arena!
Bedrooms are the place in a home where you want to feel relaxed, at peace and be able to shut out the noise of the world — both visual and audible. These bedrooms are undeniably peaceful, providing a calming environment for its residents or guests, and the use of whitespace is helpful for clearing one’s mind.
Of course we had to include one of the most central areas within your home when looking at inspirational minimalist looks! We love the bold yet subtle design decisions in these living room spaces.
Last but certainly not least — especially this time of year, when you feel like you’ve spent all your time in this place — the kitchen. This is an area with a lot of miscellaneous gadgets to be stored away in cabinets and drawers, so it’s particularly exciting to see some kitchens that have managed to keep things simple. Exposed shelving, anyone?
