Minimalist homes do not have to be cold, white, sparse, unlivable, or unrealistic. In fact, modern minimalism decor is turning around the misconception that minimalist homes cannot be cozy.
We are all just searching for balance in our lives. Often our homes throw us off balance with the mounds of items stuffed within our square footage.
So we decide that minimalism might be the cure. But sometimes we get stopped by fear that having a minimalist home will make it feel cold and well, less “homey.”
Home = comfort and minimalism has had a bad wrap for making homes feel like distilled water.
Luckily for us, minimalist homes are starting to find their own cozy vibe.
From white kitchens to simple living rooms, minimalism is taking our homes by storm and it is not that difficult to create the look in your own home.
If you truly feel there is no way to combine minimalism and coziness, then I encourage you to take a look at the follow 15 minimalist rooms and get inspired to finally take the leap to transform your home.
