Luxury Minimal Living: Why Less is More

Minimalist interiors are sharp becoming every home owner’s dream, and this modest interior trend is showing no signs of slowing down as we move in to 2022. Luxurious and understated, minimalism involves paring back interiors with muted colours and fewer decorative items for a clean and clutter-free aesthetic. But how exactly how can you achieve this in your home?

Minimalist Living Room Ideas

For most of us the living room is often the heart of the home; a room that showcases our personal style and taste to visitors, while also a hub for activity, entertaining and relaxing.

Luxury minimalism involves choosing specific items that quietly and confidently exhibit our personal preferences in interior design. Choose just one or two colours that allow statement pieces to flourish. Incorporate fitted shelving or secret storage that can hide away clutter that may be unsightly, but essential the space, helping you feel relaxed and content.

Minimalist Bedroom Ideas

When the day draws to a close, the bedroom should be a place you can escape to unwind and recharge. Minimal decor can turn any environment into a peaceful sanctuary that helps you feel composed.

Japanese and Scandanavian minimalism are often the most popular styles when designing a pared-back aesthetic. Both involve sleek lines and neutral colours to create a calming environment. To compliment your surroundings, we recommend opting for a simple; yet sleep natural white or grey on the walls, providing a sense of relaxation and serenity.

Minimalist Home Office Ideas

With the increasing demand for home offices, it has never been so important to ensure your study serves a purpose and can be a place you feel relaxed in. It is often said that a decluttered room can help your mind focus and reduce stress, which is why calmness and serenity should be a priority when designing this room.

In a recent study by the Staples Corporation, they found that 94 percent of workers reported feeling more productive in a clean and tidy workspace, while 77 percent said they felt they produced a higher quality of work in a cleaner environment. Utilising the space efficiently can be achieved through simple; yet stylish solutions such as our bright and spacious study, which incorporates a study area that can be neatly folded away when the working day is over. Finished off in a crisp white, this design is perfect for those looking to achieve the Japandic aesthetic with its neutral colour scheme and soft sleek lines.

Minimalist interiors can be achieved with a few alterations, such as handcrafted storage solutions and bespoke fitted furniture. Finishing off the designs in neutral greys and whites will ensure that every room feels understated yet pleasurable.

A real easy process, I would really recommend Neville Johnson to anyone.

We couldn’t be happier that we chose to use Neville Johnson.
