Discover the Beauty & Practical Benefits of a Personalized Minimalist Home Decor
Minimalism can be one of the most striking home decor styles, with its clean lines and bare walls. But often, there’s something missing when a minimalist home is only designed without a personal touch. Including pieces of your character in minimalistic home decor can create a tranquil yet still personalized environment, complete with almost-magical touches that make your home truly yours.
Add a Story to Your Home Decor with Your Own Art
One of the most personable methods for injecting presence into a minimalistic home is self-created art. Whether through painting, collaging, or even purely digital means, displaying your own work on the walls of your minimalist home can create an inviting and unique atmosphere that was tailored to your own needs.
If you don’t have a natural knack for art, you need not worry. Building DIY wall art of any sort can be very easy, and can often be done with just a few supplies. For example, creating a unique wall mosaic can be as simple as finding a selection of colored or textured tiles or fabrics, a pair of scissors, and a glue gun or double sided tape. Further, if creating something from scratch seems too daunting, you can also easily modify premade pieces of wall art to make them more distinct to you.
Create a Personal ambience Through Organization
Your organizational sensibilities can also be used to make your minimalist home distinct. Different people have their own unique takes on organization, even when compared with family members or friends. Using stepladders, attractive boxes and boxes, tables, and rack, you can arrange every nook and cranny of your minimalist home in a way that’s easy to access and unique to you.
Further, if you’re a fan of more liberated non-conventional organizational systems, this style can also be implemented in a minimalistic manner. Instead of a standard shelves and drawers setup, you might prefer an odd setup that’s based on size, color, shape, or another dimension. You may even use mind maps on your wall or animated displays of plants to display and arrange objects in your home.
Make the Most of Foraged Objects
Not only can you decorate your minimalist home with objects from discount stores, but you can also “shop” for them in your backyard. Foraged objects are a great way to create a personalized feel in a minimalist home, because as you forage, you have complete control over the items that you take home.
Planning a foraging excursion can also be loads of fun, as you have the chance to explore and come across unexpected surprises. Beachcombing, rock collecting, and bird watching are some examples of areas where you can start to forage for your minimalist home. Don’t forget to pick up and leaf, twig, or pine cone to display on your mantelpiece.
Knowing When to Splurge and When to Save
Decorating a minimalist home on a budget can also be done with good taste, but you’ll need to know when to splurge and when to save. Certain items, like a sofa for example, benefit from quality construction, and functionalitywill be more important than decorative attributes. Other pieces, like rugs and the backbone of the home (such as lighting fixtures) can be selected with a greater emphasis on an item’s decorative benefits.
The beauty of minimalistic home decor is that anyone can create a personalized space following its rules. Whether you’re creating DIY wall art or carefully selecting foraged items, remember to have fun through the process. Combining a personal touch with the aesthetic effects of minimalism can create a unique atmosphere that you can truly call yours.
