Minimalistic bathroom concept

The term “minimalism” first appeared in the middle of 1960s of the 20th century and mainly was used to describe sculptures of Robert Morris and Donald Judd. Since then the meaning of this word widened and now it’s used in different spheres – from fashion and music to design and architecture.

Minimalism in design is becoming more and more popular. Unlike other tendencies when strict and cold motifs were more preferable, today the accent is made on softer and live variants of this style. Fundamental principles of minimalism are sharp lines, solid surfaces, low furniture, and pastel shades. Although, lately there appeared softer shapes, more colors and textures.

The main idea of minimalism design is using simple and natural forms. This principle is a basis of oriental style in design, particularly classic Japanese design that became the very basis for minimalism. Famous designers who were the founders of minimalism were members of “Style” art group that was founded in 1917. Designers who prefer minimalism refuse dividing squares and stand for visual combining of planes of a building.

Contemporary living room

At its core, the word “contemporary” means “of the moment,” which makes this style particularly hard to define. Dating back to the 1970s, this style is unique because it borrows elements from many other aesthetics. In it, you can see nods to modern, traditional, art deco and even futuristic design.

The other defining point of contemporary design is that it’s constantly evolving. Unlike other styles which are more or less set in stone, what’s “of the moment” today may change in a few years’ time. Today, the look is defined by curved lines, neutral colors and minimalism, but it may look slightly different in the future.

Scandinavian kitchen design

Whether design is a passion, a hobby, or even just a passing fancy, chances are you’ve heard of Scandinavian style. In fact, you’ve probably heard the term used so many times that you’ve started wondering what exactly it refers to. Some of it is pretty easy to pick up – the white walls, wood floors, and modern furniture, but there’s got to be more to the story, right? Well as it happens, there is – a lot more.

The path that led to Scandinavian design becoming one of the preeminent interior styles in the world in the beginning of the 21st century actually began during the end of the 19th. Along the way, empires rose and fell, worldviews shifted, the world went to war twice and art, philosophy, and furniture all changed the ways in which they viewed themselves and each other.
