Minimalism: Less is more

Minimalism is defined as an artistic movement created in the 60s and directed by Richard Wolheim, British philosopher and big defender of the visual arts. Minimalism main objective is using the minimum, that is, only fundamental elements, avoiding object accumulation.

Space management is very important for homes with minimalist style. However, the reduced places are no barrier to this leading tendency of the modern times.

Over the years, this art in which "less is more" has been adapting to different styles, traditions and disciplines such as fashion and gastronomy. Therefore, it is very common to find minimalist aspects in diverse areas.


The tranquility foundation

Order and perfection are some of the sensations transmitted by the minimalist houses’ structures. Walls soaked in pure and calmed white that contrast with corners where black or pearl gray predominates.

To enhance our environment we will avoid, as much as possible, an overload of doors, choosing to connect the different areas of the house such as the kitchen and the living room to each other. On the other hand, we can achieve a more elegant look with doors "exposed" or simply leaving a part of the wall with its original appearance.


90-degree furniture

The furniture in the interior design world is one of the most important resources to change our home atmosphere. Straight, elegant and simple lines are some of the most characteristic features of minimalist furniture. Predominant tones such as dark brown, beige, black, white and pearl gray.

It should be noted that we don’t have to take literally the perfection of furniture with 90º lines. We can choose, for example, pikes and oval chairs that give a distinctive and unique touch.

Low pieces with metallic or glass legs are the ‘must’ of modern art, without forgetting the touch opening system, a very promising trend.
