Minimalist Modernism

Sleek Minimal Neutral Modern Living Room us

Modernism explored new ways in which people could live more simply. Ornamentation was rejected and the adoption of the machine aesthetic came to the forefront. The use of mechanically manufactured materials such as steel, glass and concrete prevailed. There was simplicity and clearness of forms with a visual stress on horizontal and vertical lines.

This will be a room for someone who like uncomplicated and uncluttered. This is simple living at its best. It will give a clean, open, simplistic impression without being too cold and clinical.

 

Reflective surfaces support the white furniture for a light, airy feel, yet the brown / taupe tones will keep the white furniture grounded not appearing to float around. The curves here and there break up the strict straight lines a bit and softens up the space.

 

This look is stylish and sophisticated, and I think it will best suit a house with open spaces, sleek lines, geometric shapes and modernist design features. It will kindle a calm, grounded, debonair atmosphere.

 

You can make this your own. There are lots of items available nowadays to create a modern modernist, minimalist look (mmm 🙂 lots of m’s).

Pssst!

There was a return to Minimalism in the 1980’s, towards the end of Postmodernism. The essential quality of buildings was revealed by simplified living spaces through minimalist architecture. This was vastly stirred up by Japanese traditional design and the notion of Zen thinking.

 

 

The Japanese interior design style has a significant influence on minimalism and sets out the principles for zen interiors. It is simplistic and streamlined in both finishes and layout. Zen interior design is based on Zen principles of space, function and light. When applied to the home it can give one a more tranquil and peaceful state of mind. 

 

 

The minimalist approach ensures using only the bare necessities in a home with each element having its own purpose. Minimalism is all about keeping it simple. Open spaces and clean lines allow for supreme simplicity. Think bare minimum for maximum outcome, a small variety of colours and streamlined form. Minimalist interior design is surely elegant when soundly put together and presently Minimalism is a prevailing design choice.
