Minimalism is in vogue—you may have seen it on Pinterest or on your Instagram feed.
To achieve minimalism, you must eliminate clutter from your life and focus on simple living habits, such as curating your environment to have a few significant items rather than constantly amassing more things. This design philosophy promotes cleaner, more efficient, and more sustainable living.
Minimalist silhouettes are devoid of clutter and flare. A minimalist living room may not have a houndstooth couch or stacks of books, but it may include a splash of color or a few subtle patterns in the shape of a rug or throw pillows.
