Modern minimalism is never stark or cold, especially when it’s found in the luxury home market of Paradise Valley, Scottsdale, and Phoenix. Modern minimalism is sleekly elegant and an eye-catching design for any upscale home.
Uncluttered with Clear Sight Lines
A modern minimalist approach to décor and design in a luxury home allows more focus on the space and flow of each room as well as a look outward with window expanses that offer panoramic views of the southwest landscape. Ample natural light that streams into the room keeps any starkness at bay, effortlessly adding a welcoming warmth.
Pangaea Interior Design, a contributor to Houzz states, “The theory of less is more isn’t about spending less. It is about achieving better design through simplicity. It is about getting the greatest impact though careful editing and restraint.”
The use of high-quality materials within a modern, luxury home is essential when designing a minimalist style. The uncluttered, simple look goes from boring to bold when the construction material are high-end. Think smooth surface kitchen cabinetry with built-in appliances that carry the sleek, continuous look. Modern minimalist cabinetry includes gleaming lacquered styles, frosted glass fronts, and floating shelves to complement a contemporary design.
Beauty Plus Function
From seating to bookshelves, modern minimalism in the luxury home combines beauty with function. A focus on quality fabrics and clean lines for couches, chairs, and even sectionals is key. A plump or overstuffed couch or bulky bookcase will detract from the overall look of the room. Instead, opt for contemporary designs with low backs, crisp tailoring, and a mix of metal and natural woods without ornate detailing.
Single Statement Piece
A single statement piece draws the eye immediately when entering a room. It may be artwork, an architectural detail like a smooth-front fireplace, or even a single piece of furniture. It also may be a lighting element like a unique hanging light or chandelier. Drawing focus with a single statement piece is an easy way to carry the minimalist design concept in any room.
