A minimalistic room with neutral tones can tend to feel cold or bland, but there's one foolproof trick that remedies this every time: Texture. Turn up the temperature with knitted throws, beaded pillows, sheepskin rugs, and velvet décor for that much-needed comfort factor. While restraint is usually advised, feel free to go wild with these sensory touchpoints (so long as they're in the same tonal family).
Stockholm-based art director and photographer Sarah Medine Lind was interviewed on how to properly use minimalist textures. "If you mix too many textures, materials, and surfaces of all different colors, the result will surely be headache-inducing,".
"If you have a white base, then opt for similar beige, dove-gray, and tan tones or any colors you would see together in nature. Generally, the colors that blend well are the ones Mother Nature intended," says Lind. We share her point of view, because the most beautiful thing is what surrounds us, what nature herself has created.
