Embrace Minimalism with a Touch of Color

The Design Aesthetic: Minimalism is Timeless

Minimal design is not just a passing trend; in fact, it will always remain stylish because simplicity and space are elements that are universally pleasing to the eye. However, have we gone too far by limiting everything to black, white, or brown? Where is the vibrancy in your life? Adding color strategically can bring life and character to a space that would otherwise appear plain and unremarkable. Let me explain how you can achieve this in your space.

Create a Visual Focus

Think of the neutral furnishings in your space as a canvas awaiting a performance. Where would you like the viewer's focus to be drawn? That's where you introduce splashes of color. This can visually guide someone through a space. Colors entice the eye to explore a room rhythmically and harmoniously, leading to a sense of dimension and interest within the space.

Ways to Introduce Color:

  • Flowers
  • Decorative accents
  • Wall art
  • Colorful fabrics on furniture

Color Harmony and Coordination

If you're an interior designer, you're adept at expertly placing colors in a room. However, if you're a DIY designer, start by selecting a palette that resonates with you. Ensuring that colors harmonize in a space is crucial for creating a cohesive and soothing environment. Begin by exploring color palettes offered by paint companies or create your own palette using paint chips. Choose colors that resonate with you and complement each other well.

Surround Yourself with Colors You Love

It's essential to immerse yourself in colors that uplift your mood. Experiment with adding just the right amount of color in the right places within your minimalistic designs. This thoughtful addition of color can bring joy and inspiration to your living spaces. Give it a try and share your thoughts with me!
