In order to fully get into the minimalist version that this article offers here, you will have to get rid of - at least for a time - the idea you have of it.
• You will first have to let go, and banish from your thoughts the fact that minimalism is only a decoration story. Of course not, because minimalism is self-sufficient and in no way needs to be considered as a vague group of elements.
• You will also accept little by little the idea that minimalism is not only black and/or white and that if the color is certainly hard to master, a minimalist interior will certainly reconcile you with it ( –> BECOME A COLOR EXPERT HERE ! <– )
• Finally, say no to the theory that minimalism is in fact only a roundabout way of avowing a lack of ideas, because who can do more can do less!
If we start by sticking to its first definition, minimalism has something to do with the notion of "seeking solutions that require minimal efforts and upheavals", this is exactly the justification that was expected to purify our spaces.
Indeed, minimalism not encumbered anything and prefers to focus on the essential. This is a genuine call to work each space in order to highlight a single function - relax, eat, work...- thus keeping close to you what is crucial to this same function, to your interpretation and the style you really spoil.
To maintain a complete harmony, pay attention to varying shapes. By forms, first hear its literal version, mix angular furniture with objects in roundnessor vice versa.
By forms, we also mean materialsbe generous about how you combine them. Indeed, it is thanks to the plurality of materials that your minimalist interior will in no way catch on the point of heat, providing to any person entering this space, the feeling of being truly welcomed, thanks to a universe at first perceived as generous.
Combine cold materials:
marble, glass, metal, ceramic, concrete
... to hot materials:
wool, leather, fabrics, wood, paper
Finally, if you have ever studied or read about the composition of a painting, you know that nothing is ever left to chance. True painted architecture, a painting usually sees the story that it tells governed by geometry and a succession of plans. Why not be inspired by them to create well-constructed minimalist spaces?
Because yes, this is a construction matter. Stone after stone, the building takes shape. The purpose of your interior can actually rely on this principle in order to make it unique and successful. Imagine that your interior scene is a photograph, and carefully place each component in its place and role. Balance the set, and don't forget the color!
♦ Only assignonly one function per space, stay focus and eliminate the useless.
♦ Combine opposing shapes and materials for more diversity and therefore uniqueness,
♦ Become the Interior Stylist or photographer you've dreamed of: voluntarily COMPOSE with the aim of achieving a stunning minimalist interior that fits your personality.
