GET THE LOOK – Modern Minimalist Style

“Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication” – learn the key elements of styling a modern minimalist interior with tips from TILE junket’s Interior Designer, Tracy Caporusso.

The modern minimalist interior is one free of clutter and includes only the essential required elements.  Characterised by clean lines, simple architecture and open space, the modern minimalist look is one influenced by traditional Japanese design including the Zen philosophy and the artistic movement in the late 1960’s and early 1970’s.

Furniture and accessories only form part of a modern minimal interior if it has function or valuable artistic appeal.  You can relate the modern minimal style to Leonardo Da Vinci’s quote “Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication”.

Tracy, Interior Designer, has collated examples of the quintessential modern minimalist space to help you create this look.

When designing or styling a Modern Minimalist interior, adhere to the motto “Less is more”.  It can take some skill and restraint to create this look, but when done well, the result is aesthetically beautiful.
