Back to basics

Gone are the days of fancy wallpaper and spending hours putting up prints – we can all breathe a sigh of relief as the minimalist look is here to stay.

Check out our four simple steps on how to accessories without the clutter – living with less is more!

Mirror Mirror on the wall…

Large mirrors are one of the best ways to make a room look stylish (and twice the size). This cargo rust effect mirror takes away the bare and empty effect that most new homes have and instead gives the room a trendy edge. When positioned correctly, a mirror can bring extra light and the feeling of more space.

Light up light up

Minimalism wouldn’t be minimalism without the inclusion of something brass or copper and we particularly love the geometric look that is used often in the Nordic style. How about this bang-on-trend Industrial style lamp from Iconic Light as a perfect statement piece to your minimalist home? Or, if you are looking for something more vintage, how about this eye catching black table lamp from Cult Furniture – combining retro-chic with industrial design.

Back to basics with bedding

Painted crisp walls or neutral muted hues, complement striking grey bedding for a cool, contemporary look. Keep it clean cut and simple with plain bedding as opposed to prints. Allow the décor to do the talking.

When considering the budget of bedding, it’s good to know the more basic the design, the more you can spend on the luxurious quality. Who said you need a heavier price to look trendy? Well, definitely not Next or Ikea, both of which have a fantastic range of plain bedding for a fraction of the price of those that are wildly printed.

Hide and seek

You can’t have a clutter-free abode without either throwing away any unnecessary items or making sure you hide it out of sight. When thinking about storage solutions there is one brand that instantly comes to mind – IKEA. The Swedish furniture giants are incredible at creating space saving ways to keep your bits and bobs out of the way. The most popular item is the Kallax –with its simple, clean design and a multitude of basket options to create your personal look, this is the perfect flexible storage solution for the modern home.
