4 tips to Minimalism

As a continuiation of my previous room decor post I'm going to share with you 4 tips to achieve minimalism in your room. Minimalism in the home is a popular but tricky style in the decor world but if you follow these tips, it will be easy!

It's very easy to end up with a room looking like a zebra or dull and brown. But it's also very easy to break up the monotone and even add a pop of colour. Read on below...

1 / use wood

Wood is a great base to any minimalist decor. It is a brown tone but has texture and can look perfect with the usual black and white feel of minimalism. I suggest getting a wooden lamp or something for that's a main feature in the area to pull everything together.

2 / how to use monotone

Monotone doesn't just have to mean black and white. Greys and creams are also perfect for this. I actually have a tape dispenser and pen holder that is clear acrylic and that can also look excellent. Pops of black are great as well to bring a bit of boldness into the area.

3 / don't be afraid of one colour

I love rose gold and having one or two pops of a colour like this is perfect. Minimalism usually means that you have to just neutral tones but I think it can look a bit dull without at least a little bit of colour. Also you can get some plants and cacti which can brighten up a room as well. I suggest greens and blues as they are soft on the mind.

4 / declutter your room

As well as wanting to keep in a neutral colour palette...you also don't want to over clutter your space. Throw stuff out or keep things hidden away in boxes and only have essential items out on display.
