Less is more: focus on minimalism (Closes April 2nd)
#1
[Image: BannerChallenge_zps36941476.png]

At the forum, a number of people have indicated that they would like to try to create minimalist interiors so therefore this challenge.

Minimalism is achieved by reducing a design to only the most essential elements. Key words are simple, clean and natural. With minimalist design it is important to focus on items, details and lighting.

The Task
Decorate a room where you focus on minimalism using the tips below. Also remember to focus on picture taking angles.

The Rules
  • You may only post one picture. You may link to more in an album
  • Pictures may be no more than 800 pixel wide
  • You may enter as many times as you want
  • Picture must be an interior shot
  • No sims allowed
  • Have fun: Remember this is a challenge not a contest
  • The forum's Challenge & Contest Rules also apply

Remember to add Heidy in your post if you want detailed feedback on what works and what doesn't.

Tips
  • Keep it simple
  • Focus on one point, the eye-catcher (what would you like to show us)
  • Focus on the picture taking angle: at eye level, from above, from below, etc.
  • Create a clean space, without clutter
  • Focus on details: go for subtle accents e.g. beautiful vases, rugs, throws, pillows or combine textures
  • Make sure that all colors are consistent. It is advisable to work with light and natural tones (but of course other combinations are also possible, let us be amazed)
  • Lighting is everything: try to use the natural outdoor light and for non-natural lighting, you can choose to keep it very simple with a bulb or just focusing on a particular lamp
  • Minimalism means less quantity and more quality. Choose items with a unique look

Inspiration
To give you a little inspiration I have two of my own pictures and four pictures from Pinterest inserted below. For more inspiration you can also take a look at the design style description of minimalism.

I am looking forward to seeing more beautiful minimalist designs.

Perhaps you should add one or two of yours as examples and link to our design style description?

Uh, I tried. Happy02 Yay for trying and producing something that's probably mediocre.

@ Blue: WoW...I like your monochromatic lighting and room!

@Atlas: If this is your first ever try, it looks pretty good! I'm not expert at picture taking but, you could perhaps lower your camera to achieve better angle?

@Soliva: I think I'm in love! Is your pic TS2 or TS3? If it is TS2 WCIF that awesome tub?

@Florence: It looks nice but, you could remove a few more stuff!

Blue - Your room looks great, very minimalistic! To make the room a little less dark you could use a wooden floor but that is not always necessary, this also depends on the atmosphere you want to show us Smile The way you took your pictures is also great!

ThatAtlasChick - That is a really cool study! I like the lamp. As Chrisa already said, you could try to lower your camera in tab mode to eye level. This makes your office more realistic Smile

soliva - Wow, very minimalistic bathroom! Well done! Smile The bathtub and the wall are perfect, not too much but still beautiful. You also used a nice angle for your picture.

florence - That is a lovely room! I like the combination between grey brick and wood. As Chrisa already mentioned, you could remove a few items. For example you could only focus on the bed and the lamp and really zoom in on those items Smile
