When you think of minimalistic look, the key is to just filter out the unwanted items from the space. Declutter each and everything, that you actually think you can do away with. Whether hallway or living room, your kitchen or bedroom, hide everything and give yourself ample of space and freedom!

The above inspiration for minimalist style is an apt example of how your bedroom can be complete with walls, lamps and just the bed itself. 

Neutral Colors are all you need!

When choosing the colors for the interior setting in your minimalist space, try to pick something up from the neutral shades and hues. The mute tones help to create a peaceful environment and elaborate the ambiance. This room, with white walls and nude colored accessories is a perfect example of how you can get away from being boring while using just Natural and Neutral Colors. 

Eliminate! Eliminate!

The key to creating a minimalist space successfully is to keep the things sorted, well organized and remembering that Less is More. Definitely, you need not to work a lot; just try to use the basic furniture and entities and eliminate those extra table, chairs, drawers you bought from market to store the unwanted items! The ultimate idea is to create a clean and crisp look for the entire home.

Invest only in Quality

We Indians are used to think big when it comes to investing. For us, our budgets come primary to us while making a purchase. When you plan to buy some interior decor items or furniture, just splurge on quality items. There is a big, big difference between a sparse dreamy designed home and a home filled with stuff you just sort of like. 

The above sofa cum shelf style is just the right thing that you can look towards before heading to shopping. Take some clue!

Texture and Tone

While you are already having enough of white, pastel and brown in your home, it is never a bad idea to add a hint of textures and style wherever you feel like. Start with an artist piece displayed on your wall, the bright yellow carpet that seeks attention at the first glance and matching window shields are not a bad idea either. 

Enliven and make your room alive with your own designer insight or consult some professionals for assistance. 

Spatial Arrangement

While we are busy in thinking of less furniture, less space and less colors, we often tend to forget about the arrangement. Be spatially aware and make such arrangement that you have enough space to walk in between furniture. Give them their own personal space before placing them adjacently right next to another object. 

Pop out some colors

Choose your own Style

It must suit your taste as there is no point of investing your time and money into something that will most probably ending up looking unwanted, undesirable or just not your cup of tea. Create a vision and collect your inspiration first. 

Create a contrast
