Minimalist design is expressed both through decor and design. It’s about visual aesthetics and lifestyle philosophy. Keeping things simple, avoiding clutter, and refraining from using more than one needs are three pillars of minimalist design.
Minimalism is often expressed by the use of open spaces, modern facades, and neutral tones. Modern design elements are common to minimalist spaces but not required. The stark, no-nonsense characteristics common to many modern design patterns are in lock-step with minimalism—that’s why the two frequently overlap.
