MINIMALIST HOME DESIGN IDEAS
In order to really make this post a true guide for you I’ve put together three design boards with materials and color palettes.
In each color palette you will find two materials: one that is a wood option and an accent material like concrete or marble. The point of working with two materials is that it’s a great way to balance your space.
I’ve also included one main paint color option but I’ve paired it with two accent colors so that you can also play with color details so that you can create the right balance for your space
The key is to achieve the perfect balance between warm and cool materials and also create a balance with your color scheme.
