Discovering Your Style: Minimalism...Hot or Not

Discovering your design style is a journey that should be enjoyed. On the road of discovery, there can be a lot of twists & turns (via hand-me-down furniture pieces) before your home, your space is a true reflection of personal style, self-expression and things you love. In the beginning people may not know what their true style is but most of us know what it is not.

Minimalism is characterized by very clean lines & simple shapes. A style that lives by less is more. The few items used in a space are very refined. Objects selected follow form and function never fuss.

Neutral Color Palette

Everything in these spaces must play a purpose. Minimalism is rooted in an Arts Movement in the 1960's but later expanded into design & architectural aesthetics associated with simplicity, neutral color palettes & clean lines.
