This Is How A Minimalist Decorates Au

It’s astonishing how much one person can acquire in a short space of time. The empty kitchen drawers, bedroom closet, and bathroom cupboards from when you first moved are suddenly brimming over with non-essentials and unused products that are now collecting dust. Even when you can’t see it, this “stuff” is cluttering your headspace and taking up valuable room in your home. It’s officially time to clear out that junk drawer.

Look around: What do you see? If it’s anything like our surroundings, there are piles of paper (mostly bills and junk mail), car keys, shoes around the front door, empty cups, sunglasses, and random objects that somehow made their way from our bag to the kitchen counter. And that’s just the beginning. The dining table is another surface that tends to be a clutter magnet.

If you want to introduce some color, be sure to choose solid pigments that are easy on the eyes and fuse well with the neutrals, such as earth-tone browns, blues, tans, and greens.

The challenge of working within the pared-back aesthetic is how little you actually have to work with. This makes the decision process even trickier than usual. You really have to consider each piece carefully before it enters the room, but this also means the end result is more thoughtful and considered—your goal is a space that anyone would want to spend time in.

Unless you’re going for that stripped-back industrial look devoid of warmth, every room needs texture—even minimalists agree. It’s vital for that cozy, lived-in feeling you just want to sink into. This expertly curated space is a colorful example of texture at work from the Moroccan textiles and eclectic furnishings to the bright jeweled wall art that only add to the high drama layered look within. The baby-pink walls and chic glossy ceiling are the perfect feminine touch to this edgy bohemian hideaway.

You could follow our advice or simply decorate like the French and throw out the rule book entirely. Ultimately, you have to do what feels right for you, and the maximalist style is one theme that beckons you to unleash the inner creative. Nate Berkus said it best: “The bottom line is that your home needs to reflect who you are, and the way that you do that is through your things,” he told MyDomaine. We couldn’t agree more.

We asked Stockholm-based freelance art director and photographer Sara Medina for her tips on getting minimalistic texture right. “If you mix too many textures, materials, and surfaces of all different colors, the result will surely be headache-inducing,” she told MyDomaine. “If you have a white base, then opt for similar beige, dove-gray, and tan tones or any colors you would see together in nature. Generally, the colors that blend well are the ones Mother Nature intended,” says Medina.

If you’re not sure about the color and not keen on testing out several samples on your wall first, download the Home Depot Project Color app and digitally find the perfect paint for any room.

To prevent this dilemma from happening at all, we recommend putting Colleen Madsen’s “one in, one out” rule into practice, where for every item that comes into your home, something else should go out in turn. The 365 Less Things editor swears by this simple philosophy, and we think it’s genius. “The one in item does not need to match the one out item, although to make a difference it would need to be of a least equal size or, better still, bigger,” she writes. “Although it generally works out that they are similar items because it is usually that you are replacing one item with another.” So you can always keep an even keel and prevent the rise of future junk anarchy.

To prevent this dilemma from happening at all, we recommend putting Colleen Madsen’s “one in, one out” rule into practice. It goes a little something like this: For every item that comes into your home, something else should go out in turn. The 365 Less Things editor swears by this simple philosophy. “The one-in item does not need to match the one-out item, although to make a difference it would need to be of a least equal size or—better still—bigger,” she says. “It generally works out that they are similar items because it is usually that you are replacing one item with another,” says Madsen.

In this case, it truly pays to buy quality over quantity and invest in the classics that will truly stand the test of time, and your interest levels. Impulse buys on trendy items that you’ll tire of quickly don’t belong here. Choose well-made pieces that are built to last, will withstand daily use, and look better as a result. Patina is everything. Besides, it’s much better for the environment; landfills are pretty full these days.

The maximalist theme is perfect for people with eclectic souls. Are you a secret (or not-so-secret) hoarder of unique trinkets, sentimental artifacts, and unusual bric-a-brac? Then this look is right up your alley. It’s time to show your true colors and put these simple yet impactful details on display. To achieve this boho-inspired aesthetic swap your coffee table for a vintage trunk instead then creatively arrange your vintage ornaments and objets d’art on top. Greenery in hanging pots or macrame planters is also a great addition to this eclectic style. Sprinkle antique furniture wherever possible, just refer to Brooklyn Decker’s personality-fueled living room if you need inspiration.

So you’ve cleared the clutter, applied the “one in, one out” rule, and chosen quality over quantity, but there are still a few stragglers hanging around. This is where you get sneaky and invest in stylish storage where chaos can live on the inside but appear chic on the outside—these clever hacks will have you storing items like a pro. This is great news for those who love the minimalistic look but are true maximalists on the inside. You don’t have to completely forgo your collector past, but the hoarder mind-set has got to go. 

While minimalistic rooms have a therapeutic effect with their chic, clutter-free aesthetic, there’s something incredibly invigorating about a wild and carefree maximalist space. These vibrant, bold, and colorful interiors rejuvenate the soul and inspire creativity—step inside The Jungalow’s bright bohemian office to see what we mean. Decorating a maxed-out space with this many layers, conflicting hues, and varying patterns takes an artful eye and a lot of attention to detail to ensure the end result feels curated rather than cluttered. If you’re not sure where to begin, never fear: We’ve listed a few simple ideas to help you turn that style dial right up. It’s time to max things out.

Naturally, we’re big fans of a white room, but not all bleached-out paints were created equal. Just ask interior design and author Will Taylor. “Yellow undertones give a white paint a warmer and creamier appearance, while blue undertones give a crisper look,” he told MyDomaine. “A space with lots of natural light is likely to look warmer, so you can use a cooler shade of white to balance the room. Rooms that are artificially lit with LED or fluorescent lighting can look cool, so go warmer.”

When it comes to designing a minimalistic space, remember to just take it one step at a time. Then sit back and truly enjoy the peaceful, calming, clutter-free space you’ve created. It feels good, doesn’t it?

If you really want to make a statement, turn on the bright lights (literally!). An eye-catching chandelier or large-scale pendant is the apple of every maximalist room’s eye. This showstopping ingredient makes you stand to attention with its impressive, overpowering nature but it also highlights the layered extravagance of the room itself. Choose wisely, however: Oversize lighting has the power to really make or break a space. Just because it’s big doesn’t mean it has to cost you, either—these affordable IKEA lights will add a luminous glow to your maximalist space.

Look around: What do you see? If it’s anything like our surroundings, there are piles of paper (mostly bills and junk mail), car keys, shoes around the front door, empty cups, sunglasses, and random objects that somehow made their way from your child’s school bag and onto the kitchen counter. And that’s just the beginning. The dining table is another surface that tends to be a clutter magnet. 

Layering is essential to creating visual interest in any room, but the maximalist loves to ramp up the variations in texture, color, and scale for that Alice in Wonderland appeal. Just like this bedroom with its larger-than-life pendant light, super-chunky knitted throw, and unique sculptures set off by a serious lick of deep navy paint on the walls. It appears seamless to the viewer at first glance, which is how you know it’s done well, but there’s an art to perfecting that effortless layered look.

Paring things down to the basics and ditching the superfluous can do wonders for your sanity—not to mention it looks super sophisticated and sleek. From monochromatic minimalism to laid-back luxury, this simple approach to interior design is one of our favorites. But just like the no-makeup makeup trend, it’s not as simple as it looks. If you’ve been a longtime fan of the look but are unsure about how to get started, our step-by-step approach to minimalist design will help you kick things off.

There’s nothing quite like the feeling of a freshly spruced space. While science suggests messy people are smarter, studies have shown that women who live in cluttered environments are likely to have high levels of the stress hormone cortisol. (Sound familiar?) For those of us who lead busy lifestyles, keeping our homes clean requires daily diligence, but we have a better idea: Become a minimalist.

If you truly want to embrace the minimalist design look and feel, these need to be cleared, stat. Ask yourself what can be eliminated, what can be stored out of sight, and what items aren’t essential; then organize according to priority. Be consistent with this process and come back to each room every few months with a fresh set of eyes. You’ll find there’s more you can simplify each time. To make sure your surfaces stay clear, give everything a special spot and stick to it.

In this case, it truly pays to buy quality over quantity and invest in classics that will stand the test of time (and spark your interest). Impulse buys on trendy items that you’ll tire of quickly doesn’t work with minimalist design. Choose well-made pieces that are built to last, will withstand daily use, and look better as a result. Patina is everything. Besides, it’s much better for the environment. (Landfills are pretty full these days.)

When creating a classic minimalistic interior, it’s all about the base color. Subdued hues rule here—from biscuit to greige and every ecru-inspired tone in between. Why? It’s clean, fresh-looking, and inspires a sense of calm. But just because classic minimalism tends to be color-averse, it doesn’t have to be bland or boring. In fact, minimalism at its finest is quite the opposite.

The challenge of working within the pared-back aesthetic is how little you actually have to work with. This makes the decision process even trickier than usual. You really have to consider each piece carefully before it enters the room, but this also means the end result is more thoughtful and considered. Your goal is to create a space that anyone would want to spend time in.

“As a rule, pair complementary colors together (those that sit opposite each other on the color wheel),” she told MyDomaine. “This approach creates a vibrant, sometimes feisty interior. Alternatively, choose colors either side of your main color, and work within tones of that color. For example, blue and green or orange and yellow always work well together. This approach creates a serene, calming interior.”

There’s only one way to capture that free-spirited, personality-driven appeal: with pattern. This can include a carefully edited gallery wall featuring thrifted finds from your nearby charity store or original artwork scored at the local flea market. Another way to throw in decorative prints is by layering rugs in conflicting colors and cultural references. There’s a certain charm in mixing the prints together for a charming look that’s easygoing yet polished. Just keep the hues within the same tonal palette and you’ll always end up with a room that’s chic but doesn’t clash.

A minimalistic room with neutral tones can tend to feel cold or bland, but there’s one foolproof trick that remedies this every time: texture. Turn up the temperature with knitted throws, beaded pillows, sheepskin rugs, and velvet décor for that much-needed comfort factor. While restraint is usually advised, feel free to go wild with these sensory touch points, just as long as they’re in the same tonal family.

Paring things down to the basics and ditching the superfluous can do wonders for your sanity, not to mention it looks super sophisticated and sleek.

If you’ve been a longtime fan of the look but are unsure about how to get started, our step-by-step approach will help you kick things off. 

Now that you know all the steps to styling a minimalistic home, we want to take this opportunity to reiterate the underlying philosophy behind it: Keep it simple. Tone everything done, pare everything back, strip it down, and abide by the “less is more: approach. That doesn’t mean it has to be boring, as you can see from our image selection, when done well, minimalism can be truly beautiful, warm, rich, and inviting. Just take it one step at a time; then sit back and truly enjoy the peaceful, calming, clutter-free space you’ve created. It feels good, doesn’t it?

UK interiors expert Abigail Ahern is “obsessed with pushing color boundaries.” The trick, she told MyDomaine, is “not to be afraid.” Ahern adds, “Forget old dictums about not combining certain colors too. If Mother Nature can pair green grass with blue sky, why can’t we? It’s so much more interesting to play with color than to keep things bright and white. It makes you grin with delight, adds drama and movement, and mixes beautifully with neutrals. It becomes addictive, and you actually want to linger longer in a space. Promise!”

If you want to introduce some colour, be sure to choose solid pigments that are easy on the eyes and fuse well with the neutrals, such as earthy style browns, blues, tans, and greens.

So you’ve cleared the clutter, applied the “one in, one out” rule, and chosen quality over quantity, but there are still a few stragglers hanging around. This is where you get sneaky and invest in stylish storage. Attractive storage allows the chaos to live inside while still appearing chic on the outside. This is great news for those who love the minimalistic look but are true maximalists on the inside. You don’t have to completely forgo your collector past, but the hoarder mindset has got to go.

We get it: Color can feel daunting and incredibly intimidating if you’re averse to bright hues. But it’s time to be bold and dip your brush into some vivid hues. According to Australian interior designer Shannon Fricke, decorating with color is easy once you understand the color wheel and which tones sit naturally work well together.
