It's not unusual to feel a bit uncomfortable in a decoration-filled room, so it's no wonder there are a lot of minimalist decor ideas. As the name suggests, they focus on ideas that have fewer things in them. When it comes to the minimalist style of decor, it's not so easy to fail, but it might be useful to remember the golden rule of this style of design — the less, the better. With minimalist home decor ideas, some rooms get more attention than others.

While at home, we usually spend our time in two different rooms — the living room during the day and the bedroom at night. With minimalist bedroom ideas, the design should help the person fall asleep. A plant in the corner, a bed (obviously), some simple, one-word posters on neutral-colored walls — all these elements help bring minimalist decor to life while creating a comfortable environment before sleep.

When you wake up, there are also some minimalist living room ideas for you to use. Here you have the liberty to be different. For example, some ideas focus on keeping people in close quarters, removing tables and other obstacles to allow a conversation to flow from one person to another without too much hindrance. Others try to make the living room a livable space, adding bookshelves and only a few decorations. 

So, if you want to spice up the environment around you with fewer items, you might need to look at some minimalist interior design. After all, the best inspiration comes from looking at how others have decorated their living spaces. For this reason, we have compiled some of the best minimalist decor designs for you to look at and maybe learn from.

From small decorations to full-scale decor, if you liked some of them, leave an upvote. On the other hand, if you want to share some of your knowledge on this style, you can do so in the comments below.

That works great if you have enough storage to put things away. I have a constant battle in a smaller kitchen putting things under the counter, pulling what I need now out. But, it's great if you have the space.

Ah yes. Nothing screams minimalist better than a bunch of useless s**t that serves no purpose. Like a basket full of pillows.

Not this one, though. Blues are my favorite color but these two do not compliment each other.

Unfortunately book paper attracts mold, mites and dust. Very detrimental to those who have allergies /lung issues.
