Minimalism has been on the trend from lifestyle, health, and even when it comes to interior design. This major design style from the ’90s is a foolproof route that a calm and muted home is worth the investment since it never goes out of style due to the practical and well-judged thinking of a human being.

Believing in its theory that ‘less is more’ it is needed to rethink that minimalism is not just about muted tones and or ultra-modern space, but as a concept that showcases exceptional functional design while artistically creating a simplified way to live.

Here are a few ways on how to have a sleek minimal look with a pop of color.


Since we are talking about colors here, the first thing you need is to create your color palette. When it comes to color, homes typically a minimalist home contains a neutral color palette that includes colors inspired by nature. Sticking to two or three colors to keep the color scheme simple.

Colorful minimalism is energized by interesting and colorful focal points. just because classic minimalism tends to be color-averse, it doesn’t have to be bland or boring. In fact, minimalism at its finest is quite the opposite.


 A neutral space can be cold, sterile, and boring. The easiest way to combat this is by using different textures in the same neutral palette of colors. Minimalist homes can have a touch pattern in them. Choose a few key textiles or pieces that have a cohesive print to give some life to your space.

The bathtub and the walk-through shower were visually identified with black marble tiles. On the walls used glossy white tiles. The accent in this room has now become a drawer under the washbasin with a rich walnut texture, which can often be found in the furniture of the Soviet period.

Now that you have a calming, clear space, you might feel the familiar urge to fill it up. Your walls are mostly bare, isn’t that just begging for more artwork? Wouldn’t a few more pillows look great on this couch? Rein it in. It may take a while for those old habits to die but eventually, they will. Simple isn’t boring. It may take a bit of adjustment to learn to appreciate it.
