More than just a home decor trend, minimalism is, for some people, a lifestyle. To embrace the minimalist trend, you have to get rid of the clutter and keep only the essentials, but the result brings a serene atmosphere to the space.
In your child’s nursery, the calm and tidiness essential to Minimalism might just be what you need! Here are the fundamentals of Minimalism and how you can bring a little serenity to your baby’s room.
Simplicity Is The Key
The minimalist aesthetic is all about simplicity.
Clean Lines and Basic Shapes
Choose accessories and furniture with clean lines and basic shapes, like triangles, squares, hearts, stars, etc. Stay clear of elaborate designs or patterns.
A Simple and Natural Color Palette
Go for a simple and natural color palette, including no more than 3 colors. The all-white or black and white color palettes are always very popular choices when you’re trying out a minimalist look. You can also play with blues, greys or beiges.
You could also go for simple white and black, with a touch of one bright color.
Less Is More
The second and most important principle of minimalism is : less is more.
Only the Essentials
So, when decorating your little one’s minimalist bedroom, keep only the essentials and avoid items that are only decorative. The objective of minimalism is first of all to get rid of the items that have no use in order to make space for more important things.
So, try to find items with dual-use, like a toy that’s also a stylish piece, or like a drawer that could be used as a changing table. And, instead of buying 3 of the same item, buy only one really good version of that item.
Once you get rid of all the clutter, you’ll instantly feel more comfortable with all that room to breathe.
Focus on 2 or 3 Statement Pieces
A minimalist nursery doesn’t have to be dull! The idea is to focus on 2 or 3 statement pieces, like one big piece of art hung over your child’s crib or a fashionable teepee to accent the playtime space.
