Soft minimalism. New interior-design style.

Clean, contemporary and liveable

The term ‘soft minimalism’ has ben around for a while now, with designers from Norm Architects being key campaigners of this trend. This warm, liveable and soft style of minimalism isn’t to be mistaken with any kind of flowery, quaint or vintage style. It is modernist and minimal with soft tones, ergonomic design and conscious consumerism.

Soft minimalism starts with light, plain neutrals as a base. So, choose simple painted walls in white or one of the ‘new neutrals’ – mist grey, sand, or beige for example. Yes, really, beige. It’s no longer an interior swear word.
When it comes to your walls, floors and furniture, think clean modern lines and simple decorating. Avoid the visual noise of patterns or swathes of bright colour.
Then, onto this blank canvas, introduce some tone-complementing colour, rounded or organic shapes, natural materials (timber, ceramics, or linen for example) and texture – to soften the look, and add personality and heart to a space. Just don’t over-accessorise.
Soft minimalism might ask you to pare your possessions right back, but it’s also about really loving what you own. You don’t need four teapots clattering around in the cupboard – just have one teapot, that you adore.
Avoid fast trends in favour of timeless style, and choose quality, so it lasts. This is conscious consumerism for the stylish.
