Minimalism is back.

Our lives in the new-age have become so frantic. And the world is so uncertain. We want to fall back on our homes and want it to be simple and unfussy. And that is what minimalist design gives us.

Minimalism is one of the most noteworthy design movements of the 19th – 20th century. As the name indicates, minimalist design is certainly not an extravagant style but it’s not also an absence of design. It gives an elegant look to the design because of its uncomplicatedness and simple forms. Undeniably, it is the most effective, prevailing and powerful design these days.

5) To get minimalist homes done right, routinely edit decor pieces and swap them out seasonally; to avoid a weighty, brimful and overbearing effect. Adding a gallery-like look with oversized floor vases, or handwoven baskets and pieces of specific artworks, will add a ton of character.
