I just realized that I passed the 200.000 views mark on this little blog and did not realize.
Indeed I am very proud of it and want to thank all my readers for their loyalty. Without YOU I would have given up already.
The well-known saying “Less is more” can sometimes be a
wonderful guide to people looking for ideas on how to decorate or remodel their
home. There’s some charm in over-stuffed rooms, full of interesting details,
especially if they are exotic. However, simplicity brings beauty and grace to a
home that no crowded space can match.
Positive aspects of simple solutions
If you are not a big fan of loud, shocking colours, elaborate decorations on
walls and ceilings, unusual furniture and making sure no corner remains empty,
you’ll enjoy the positive aspects of simple décor. Minimalistic style:
• brings out the beauty of your home’s architecture
• makes your home look more spacious and elegant
• makes it much easier to keep your house clean and tidy
• has a calming effect on the house’s inhabitants
What’s lovely about minimalistic homes owners is their love for plants. Plants
are usually that lively, colourful “detail” that interrupts the sheer
simplicity and brings out the house’s beauty.
When decorating walls, there are many factors to consider: the purpose of the
room, how many windows it has, how big it is, how you want to feel in it.
Teenagers and older people will no doubt want different things from their
When going for a simple style in your home, you’ll want your eyes to rest on
soothing colours: earthy tones, different shades of brown and cream, peach,
very light green, or simply white. Different rooms can have different wall
paint, to match the furniture appropriately, but they should all have a
Children’s room is probably the happiest, most colourful room in the house, so
even when you want to keep it simple and toned down, the yellow, orange, baby
blue and bright green are definitely allowed in the play room.
If you decide on the white throughout, make sure you put up some nice photos,
quality paintings or similar details that will open up your home, and not make
it look sterile.
In healthy surroundings, healthy body
People who lead messy, disorganized lives often don’t eat properly and have
problems with their weight. It’s well known that people who pay attention to
how they make and serve food are healthier.
You should not eat standing up, hurrying on to some other
task, or plopped down on a sofa, watching TV. Food should be eaten at a tidy
table in a pleasant atmosphere. Most happy events, whether private or business,
are celebrated during a meal, which is why a great amount of care should be
given to dining room decoration.
Many people, especially women, are very interested in how their kitchen is
decorated. The bigger, more spacious and brighter it is, the easier it is to
spend hours in it. Don’t clutter the kitchen with unnecessary elements, but
maximize its space and potential putting only what’s necessary in it.
Another reason to go for the minimalist style in your home is - it is less
likely you’ll do a bad job decorating this way. When you clutter your home with
many things, the chances are higher some of these things will not look good
together. You don’t want your house to look distasteful, but you do want it to
be pleasant to live in and beautiful. Keep it simple and you’ll love it.
Some pics I find on the internet really puzzle me - especially when it comes to interior design. The question here is "what the heck am I supposed to do with this special piece of furniture?" I mean the long brown piece that reminds me so very much of the exercises you were supposed to carry out on these vaults in old stinky school gyms.
If this is supposed to serve as seating furniture then I would really fear to lose my balance while reaching for a cup of coffee on the table not to mention these lamps which remind me strangely of hanging boobs...
