A minimalist lifestyle doesn’t have to be bland and boring. In fact, it can help you get rid of the superfluous in your life so you can concentrate on the most important areas of your life. Minimalist décor can also reduce stress and provide a sleek and modern slant to your environment.
You’ll save time by having less to clean and bother with. And, minimalist décor can also add sophistication to your space and help you feel more confident. But, it’s not just about getting rid of junk until you get to a blank space. Minimalist décor is all about design and implementation of a simple approach to life.
Take a quick assessment of what you see when you look around a room in your home. Is clutter on every surface – dishes and cups on the coffee table, toys on the floor and piles of paper everywhere?
Clutter magnets in your home can be any type of surface that tends to collect items you don’t need at the moment. Think about how you can simplify each room by taking out non-essential items and storing other (essential) items out of sight.
That is the heart of minimalist décor – for every one item you bring in, take one out. Also, think about color tones in your home that will create a minimalistic feel. You don’t have to think white, but perhaps neutral colors with undertones of yellow or blue.
Color can be introduced into the room with such hues as such as greens, browns and blues. Bright green plants can add color to the room and also bring a calming effect. Clean, crisp and calm should always be the mantra of a minimalist lifestyle.
Even though you’re working with less, you’ll need to be careful with the choosing process. Consider each addition (or subtraction) to the room carefully and with much forethought, making your ultimate goal a clean and serene space that beckons you to come and stay awhile.
Avoid turning your minimalistic rooms into cold, unwelcoming spaces by thoughtfully adding such warmth as throws, beaded pillows and other rich items that can add the feel of comfort and interest to the rooms. Be sure to keep them in the same tones as the base of the rooms.
Minimalist décor brings simplicity in to your life and can make you feel better, have more energy and become more motivated to achieve. Clutter in your home can equal to clutter in your mind and keep you from achieving and becoming all you can be.
Always choose quality minimalist décor items that will last and that you won’t tire of. Don’t give in to impulses when you’re shopping and choose items that will wear well for months or even years to come.
