Ellecor & Interior Design Tips for Cozy Minimalism

Cozy minimalism is a rising trend in the interior design world. This trend is essentially the halfway point between harsh minimalism and a busier interior design trend. You don’t want your house to be cluttered, but you also don’t want it to feel like an operating room. The idea behind cozy minimalism is to focus on both comfort and functionality. Read on to find out more about how to curate a cozy minimalist look in your own home!

Curate a Functional Base

Get the basics right! Invest in pieces of furniture that will fit the function of the room. Build your room around simple and sleek pieces. If you’re designing a living room, your couch (which is the piece of furniture that expresses the function of the room) should be the focal point. Everything else in the room should focus on enhancing that space and highlighting its function. Function is king in a minimalist design!

Quality Over Quantity

Instead of spending money on lots of cheap décor that can end up making your home look cluttered, invest in high-quality pieces of décor that enhance the space without overwhelming it. Spend time curating your collection of décor so that you don’t end up with extraneous ornamentation.

Add in Some Texture

A great way to make a minimalist design feel cozy is to add texture to your space. You can do this by adding a fuzzy area rug. Also, a few blankets draped over chairs and couches will give the space a soft, inviting feel.

Don’t Forget to Accessorize

Cozy minimalism doesn’t call for a rejection of all accessories. Rather, you should carefully choose your pieces so that each one adds something to the space. Choose minimal accessories so as not to make the space feel cluttered. Use things like throw pillows or wall art to add pops of color to your simple design. If you forgo accessories altogether the room will feel sterile, so choose a handful of pieces that speak to your sense of cozy style.
