They say that beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder and if you’re one of those people who appreciate the simple things in life, then it’s definitely going to reflect in your home interiors! So the question now is how exactly can you pull off simple yet unique interiors? Something that still has lots of personality despite being plain? Let’s take a look!
1. A restrained colour scheme
While simplicity may lie in using as little as possible, it can never come across if you articulate it in a bold, vivacious colour palate. On the other hand, a restrained colour scheme is one of the best ways to interpret a simple interior design. Aside from the understated elegance, the presence of neutral colours can help make your spaces look absolutely chic and sophisticated.
2. Small details matter
While simple interiors, at first glance, don’t have too much intricacy to offer, they actually have too many small details. If you take a look at the kitchen in this image, you’ll see how at first glance there’s simple wood and tile, but then at a closer look you’ll see how there’s subtle geometry and symmetry that’s been thoughtfully incorporated in the space to enhance its looks.
3. Go for grounded
Did you know that simplicity calms the soul? It’s positively grounding. This is why you feel so much better after a successful spring cleaning. It’s why you feel so refreshed after decluttered your closets. Similar is the case with interior designing. Simple, straightforward designs have a way of emulating a refreshing and grounding vibe in your space, and you can do so by focusing on the functional aspects while eliminating unwanted details.
4. Be minimal in all respects
The key to creating a successfully simple home interior is to be as minimal as possible. So whether it’s your wall design, your wardrobe door-leaf’s, your artwork or even your bedsheet you need to make them very minimal.
5. Knowing how to create balance and proportion
Having a keen sense of balance, proportion and harmony is key to creating a simple and attractive interior design. When you’re working with less – less design, less furnishing and less décor – you’ll find that visually filling up the space to make it seem wholesome can be challenging. In such cases, knowing how to work with what you’ve got can make all the difference in the world.
