Sometimes you just want to clear your mind… to take away the clutter of life and just relax. Minimalism is the interior design equivalent to this concept. We humans love our “stuff”, so naturally our homes tend to collect said “stuff”. A minimalist space keeps clutter at bay and simplifies everything. Clean lines, few (if any) accessories, and no busy patterns or excessive color. Furniture and architectural elements are pared down and spare. It is design stripped down to only its most essential elements. Modern materials such as concrete and metal feel at home in the stark beauty of a minimalist interior. From living rooms and bedrooms to kitchens and baths the style translates to every room in the house. Minimalist interiors are avant-garde and feel supremely sophisticated. While this style does fit seamlessly in a metropolitan setting, it can also work perfectly in other locations. With its stark lines it can keep the focus on the surrounding nature in more rural areas.
The modern minimalist interior design movement came about in the early 20th century after World War I as a response to the overly embellished and heavy Victorian and Edwardian eras. A leader in this concept was architect Ludwig Mies van der Rohe who proclaimed that, “Less is more”. The mark of the Bauhaus movement he was a part of is still felt today around the world.
