The concept of Minimalism in interior design is to strip everything down to its essential quality and achieve simplicity. The idea is not completely without ornamentation, but that all parts, details, and joinery are considered as reduced to a stage where no one can remove anything further to improve the design.
Japanese Zen philosophy, which also embraces simplicity, manifests in Japanese architecture and design. It is no wonder then, that it in turn influences the development of the Minimalist decor style globally.
Minimalist interiors typically utilise basic geometric forms, repetition, and monochromatic colour combinations. Check out our picks for accessories that fit in if you’re going for this style, but remember, Minimalism is not just a decor style, but a way of life, a philosophy even.
