Hello! Come on in. If I could make you a cup of tea I would. We could sit down and talk about minimal interior style all day.
I’ve talked about my decluttering and my love of minimalism but I wanted to actually show you what all that looks like in real life. So, I thought I’d give you a tour of my house. Wanting to create a calm relaxing space is why minimalism intrigued me in the first place (I wish I had some before shots to show you). It’s fair to say I became addicted to the feeling of space and light once I got going and this is the result.
I feel like the images speak for themselves so get comfy, and enjoy a good scroll….
That’s about it for downstairs, let’s go up.
Here’s a peak at my capsule wardrobe – plenty more on this coming soon (my bath robe obviously isn’t part of the capsule wardrobe!)
And we’re done. I hope you enjoyed a good nosey round.
It’s taken a while to get to this stage and I’m still not finished – I’m itching to paint the wooden floors grey. I’m heavily influenced by Scandinavian interior style. For me, it’s the perfect combination of timelessness and functionality. While I love minimal design, I still want to feel cosy at home.
Tips for getting a minimal Scandinavian interior look
– Keep surfaces and floor space clear
– Lots of white paint. Skirting boards, walls, ceilings – you name it, paint it white.
– Stick to neutral tones throughout
– Make sure every item has a use or purpose
– Accessorise with lamps and plants (not too many)
– Use texture such as blankets to stop things looking too clinical and cold
