Simplicity in design is not always an easy thing to do well. Just because there are usually less pieces to deal with, does not mean it is easy to achieve an interesting and cohesive design.
I often use the term, Simple-Understated-Elegance, referring to my preferred style.
Today I am taking it a step further by showing you images of rooms that I find, “Simple!” Simple, yes, but very well designed.
At first glance you will notice there is not a lot going on in the room, but look more closely at each, and every element, and how beautiful it marries to all the other elements in the room, producing a simple and cohesive design…….

SIMPLE? YES, INTERESTING? ABSOLUTELY
I noticed in studying each image that there were certain qualities that they all offered……….
- Interesting architectural details

- Patterns were kept to tone-on-tone geometric patterns
- Each piece of furniture in the room had a function
- Neutral backgrounds
Less is sometimes More!
