I’m not an interior design expert, but I’ve noticed minimalism has a serious branding problem when it comes to interior design.
When I’m on Pinterest and I’m searching for minimalist spaces, I tend to find a bunch of stark rooms with barely any sense of personal space. The design is bare and cold. While I suppose that’s true minimalist form, it’s also not at all my style. There’s a way to blend simple lines and lack of clutter, but still, have a space that represents your style and creature comforts in an inviting way.
Here’s some ideas to get the minimal creative juices flowing…
Start with limiting your color scheme to 3 or less.
// Apartment Apothecary //
Simitry makes things look orderly and intentional.
// My Domain //
Natural woods and bold art can really warm up a space that’s otherwise white.
// apartment 34 //
// NYDE //
Which is not to say that white rooms can’t be inviting on their own. They can! You just need to vary the shades and play with texture.
// Beautiful Homes //
Most importantly, it has to reflect the personal style of the person who lives there. The more quirkiness and personality, the better.

What do you think? Are you a fan of true minimalist design? Can you see yourself feeling at home in sparse, empty spaces? I do love lots of space, but I need texture, color, furniture, and a personal feel to really call something home.
