Softening The Edges
The beauty of Minimalist décor lies in the clean lines, lack of clutter and the impression of sleek fluidity. But sometimes this trend can feel cold and appear too stark. With a few simple twists, you can achieve the Minimalist look within your living space, but in an accessible and warm way.
Show your true colours
Traditionally, the colour palette for this trend features black, white and neutral-toned beiges. Repainting your room might not be the most practical option, so adding touches of these colours throughout, will tie the room together and achieve synergy. White lampshades look so classic on black bases, and when placed on an acrylic black table, exude a sense of luxury.
Minimalism is about creating the impression of space, so clearing away clutter will help you reach an airy aesthetic. Clever storage solutions such as footstools, sideboards, or shelving units with draws, will ensure that those essential items are kept close at hand, but out of sight. Wall space is another element to consider. It’s better to hang one statement art piece, and create a focal point, rather than dotting frames around the room.
To prevent your living space from appearing too sparse, include different textures. Dress contemporary furniture, such as leather sofas, with fabric cushions or add a cream toned rug, which will also help create a feeling of space. The Fifty Nine Leather has the sharp sleek lines synonymous with Minimalism, and is sure to add character to your living room.
