Design, whether it is in fashion, architecture, or home décor, is always a form of expression. Design represents best the preferences of the person who is using it to express themselves through the world. Oftentimes, design styles are either derived from existing elements of nature, or created based on a person’s subjective form of expression, or inspired by something that he has witnessed. One such style which emerged as a lifestyle first, and then later got incorporated into art and design is Minimalism. Minimalism is way of life that teaches individuals to be feel satisfied with the things that they require to lead a healthy lifestyle. It teaches individuals to be free of any materialistic wants, with only accumulating things that are essential to their wellbeing. However, in the recent years, design connoisseurs have begun to incorporate the basics of minimalism to their art and design schemes, and it has been majorly evident in the recent styles of home décor.
Minimalism in home décor
Light, shape, and high-quality materials are the three mainstays of modern interior design, used by professionals to evoke a feeling of liberation and calm.
