These days simplistic design is popular in the world of interior design. Our homes are our sanctuaries. Our bedrooms a place to rest; our living rooms a place to enjoy free time - and for most of 2020, our houses have also become our offices. Home decor has never felt more important.
Considering the amount of time that we spend at home; interior design and the harmony of the aesthetics in our homes has never been more relevant to our happiness.
In particular, a craze which has taken the interior design world by storm is minimalism. Simplistic design and empty spaces are sought after. Having few material objects is a feature of this home decor trend.
Choosing to embrace simplistic design at home can help us achieve a calmer and more peaceful state of mind. In 2019, Netflix released the very popular docu-series, ‘Tidying Up With Marie Kondo’ which follows Japanese born Marie in her mission to help others downsize the clutter in their homes and improve their home decor. The documentary highlighted the human reluctance to let go of items which no longer serve their original purpose and are no longer in style.
Simplistic design not only relates to the amount of things in your home but also focuses on quality, function, appearance and the fundamentally basic rules of minimalism. The designers at SPEXTRUM advice updating your home decor annually and suggest coinciding redecorating with the change of seasons, noting Spring as the natural season of change and progression across many Asian cultures. Designers at SPEXTRUM suggest keeping staple pieces of furniture items but, decluttering and letting go of home interior design accessories which no longer fit with your interior vibe.
