About Me

Designing the Interior of Your Home Hey! My name is Erica and I live alone in Sydney, Australia. When I moved into my current home, I was shocked to find that some of the rooms hadn't been touched since the 1990s. It was like walking into a time machine and it made me want to cry. I called my friend who is an interior designer and he helped me to work out how I wanted each room to look and which features I would like to remove or add to the space. I am really pleased with the results and I would like to offer you some tips on how you can create the perfect interior.




2 Key Items For Creating A Minimalist Style Bedroom

Minimalism has become a highly desired interior design look in recent years. There has been a trend towards quality over quantity and a growing awareness of the unsustainable nature of consumption. This awareness has lead to an embracing of a clutter-free, streamlined look in homes all over the country.

The bedroom is a space in the home that can really benefit from the minimalist look and style. As a private room, your bedroom may have a tendency to become messy, crowded with things and less serene and restful as you might like. If you're aiming for a minimalist style in your bedroom, then here are two key items that will help you to achieve it.

1. Built in wardrobes

Even the most extreme minimalists still need somewhere to store their clothes and belongings in a bedroom. The most efficient and streamlined storage option for this style of bedroom is built in wardrobes. They blend in seamlessly with the walls of the bedroom and provide maximum storage using minimum space.

Built in wardrobes can occupy the entire height of the room, utilising the space that free-standing wardrobes can't. The unit also keeps the lines of the space clean and crisp and eliminates gaps and nooks that only serve to gather dust and detritus.

You can also make the most of your storage space by having the interior of the wardrobe custom built. This gives you the freedom to create storage for precisely the items you have instead of trying to fit your things into a standard and less than ideal storage system.

2. Beautiful reading lamps

Minimalism is about embracing a clutter-free and pared back version of your home. However, this doesn't mean that your bedroom has to be plain and bland to achieve this design objective. A few elegant but beautiful items can lift the room from stark to stunning. The simplicity of the rest of the room will make these items eye-catching features in the room.

Adding some beautiful reading lamps is a fantastic way to add a touch of colour, pattern and visual interest to your minimalist bedroom. There are no rules on which style to use. You can choose anything from replica antique lights through to ultra modern lights using materials such as concrete or resin.

As well as the pared down and simplified look, minimalism is about making sure that everything you include in your room has a function. Reading lamps epitomise this ideal, serving an essential role as well as looking beautiful.
