The Beauty of Simplicity: Minimalism 

Hello. I’m Joanna, a writer for Arcadian Lighting, a terrific online source for light fixtures of every style. I love my work. I get to write guest posts for blogs such as AH Designs, to share with readers like you. You can find me at all hours of the day and night searching the web for the most beautiful interior design ideas and images.

Often viewed as stark and cold, minimalist spaces tend to get a bad rap. However, these decors can be simplistic without sacrificing comfort and warmth. Decorating simply can be a feat as it takes just the right balance between design elements such as color, texture, pattern and light. To illustrate, I’ve gathered some of my favorite minimalist spaces below. Thanks for letting me share today!

While not all minimalist spaces are predominately white, it tends to be the most pristine and crisp canvas for a simplistic setting.

This minimalist loft gets a few pops of color from furnishings. In differing shades of pink, they immediately draw the eye through the space.

Following the simplistic credo—less is more—this large loft, with tall ceilings and painted wood floors, is fitted with the barest of furnishings and accessories. Eclectic lighting fixtures seem to pop against all white on the floor, walls, ceiling.

The simplest of decors, this studio space boasts minimal furnishings. Its clean lines offer a stylish yet peaceful environment.

A monochromatic palette gives this minimalist living area a warm and inviting feeling despite its bare appearance.

A minimalist bathroom gets a boost of color and texture with mint green tile around the tub and carried up the walls.

A modern black and white office gets a burst of color from a fun pink desk which adds personality to the space. Images 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8
