Minimalist interior design is one of the architectural centerpieces of the 20th century. Spare and streamlined while still being inviting, minimalism is charming in almost any space. With less clutter to wade through and mentally process, the innate beauty of each piece of furniture or art in the home really starts to stand out. Choose a general muted color to be the default of your space, and an accent color or two to highlight furniture and other accessories. The less furniture the better! Think of which furniture can be eliminated without sacrificing comfort and livability. Go for a few pieces of plain, simple furniture with solid and subdued colors. Keep all surfaces clear and free of clutter. Keep your walls clear as well with only one or two pieces of art to add color. Keep only the essentials!
