A successful minimalist decoration

Minimalist decoration is the big current trend in interior design. The time is no longer for accumulation and compulsive shopping, that's for sure. The minimalist decoration is a sober, refined and functional decoration; no more unnecessary clutter! However, an overly minimalist interior can quickly appear cold and charmless. To succeed in your minimalist decoration, here are some tips that you should follow.


Decluttering: the first step for a successful minimalist decoration

The very principle of minimalist decoration is not to live in the superfluous. For this, it seems quite obvious that a large storage is required. We must put an end to the piles of letters and various documents lying around on the dining room table, the coats rolled up into a ball on the sofa, or even the children's toys scattered in all the rooms of the house. Do a great sorting in your house, and sort your belongings, furniture and objects, into four categories: to keep, to give, to sell, to throw away. Then take action! It is a question of completely eliminating the disorder; get rid of anything you no longer need.


Set up your minimalist decoration

For a minimalist decoration, two main criteria must be respected: choose neutral tones, and invest in quality furniture. Here are some details.

Neutral tones : In a minimalist decoration, the ideal is to opt for monochromatic and neutral tones. For example, choose white, black, gray, or beige! Also avoid patterns; we said sobriety!

Quality furniture : The idea is to invest in quality furniture with clean lines, and whose style will last over time. Each piece of furniture must be functional. If it is useless, there is no need to clutter up the space for nothing. You only need to have what you need to live comfortably. Also remember to install adequate lighting; it is very important in a minimalist decoration. Floor lamps, wall lights or even pendant lights, you are spoiled for choice.


Do not fall into the trap of unwelcoming minimalism

The risk with minimalist decoration is that you can quickly fall into the trap of a cold and unwelcoming interior. This is why some details have to be adjusted. For example, don't hesitate to add a few touches of color here and there; sparingly, of course, the atmosphere must remain minimalist! Do not hesitate to add cushions, rugs or throws, to warm the space and also make it more comfortable. And why a vase with a pretty bouquet, or a candlestick on a table, and a few picture frames hanging on the wall? 

The article is coming to an end. All you have to do is imagine the minimalist decoration that will suit you! Finally, here is a small selection of items available on the website of The Woods Gallery, or directly in our store in Montmartre.
