Minimalism works on the principle that less is more. Minimalist interiors are stripped down to their essential elements and empty space is left to make the design statement. Use colour sparingly in minimalist rooms, the idea is not to distract or detract from simplicity. Black, white and primary colours are often regarded as best for a minimalist space.
Still, it is important to maintain a sense of balance within your decorating. The very best minimalist interiors are a cohesive blend of old, new, colour, texture and pattern.
