The Beckham family continues to dominate the headlines, not least because of the epic documentary about former footballer David, but also because of their impeccable fashion and interior design choices. Although the family has never given an official tour of their stunning estate, fans have gotten numerous glimpses as several of their family members have shared photos on social media – and the latest post from youngest son Cruz Beckham reveals another look at the aspiring musicians Pete. This time, it’s his minimalist living room that reaffirms that there is indeed beauty in simplicity.
Simple, minimalist design is special for several reasons: Simple, uncluttered and uncluttered spaces – the winning combination of form and function creates interiors that are aesthetically pleasing yet functional.
This minimalist Scandinavian aesthetic, as spotted in Cruz Beckham’s living room, is back, but this time infused with modern style, texture and a calm, inviting mid-century color palette.
That’s why designers and decorators are championing this minimalist aesthetic for 2024 and beyond.
With modern life hectic, homeowners are constantly aiming to find a balance between warm, elegant simplicity and cozy luxury for their homes, and the living room is the perfect space to start.
This design philosophy is also centered around a more efficient and sustainable way of living. Minimalism itself is rooted in the principle of ridding your home of clutter and clutter. It’s about harnessing the power of a “clean” space limited to a few essential pieces and meaningful items.
You rarely see an abundance of clutter in a Scandinavian home. Instead, expect to see clean lines, simple furniture, and a focus on bringing the colors found in nature indoors.
The main purpose of a Scandinavian style home is to improve everyday life. So, furniture is not just about elegant elegance, it is also about function – it must serve a purpose and stand the test of time.
Choose a few key furniture pieces that look good but also work hard, paired with some carefully chosen accessories, fixtures or soft furnishings to tie the room together.
In Cruz Beckham’s home, for example, a floating console table, a simple bench with minimal details, a wall-mounted TV, a woven rug, and an off-white color scheme are strong elements of this interior design trend. Remember to only make room for items and furnishings that you really love.
“Less is more,” says Clare Hornby, head of creative at Parker & Stonehouse. “Let the furniture do the talking by complementing it with some carefully chosen pillows or decorative accessories to create a simple, sophisticated look and feel.”
When designing a minimalist living room, the room color ideas you choose can make or break the space.
Evoking purity and cleanliness combined with confidence and sophistication, white or off-white is a great versatile color choice for a simple, understated living room scheme.
This versatile neutral is one of the most popular paint trends for interiors, and it’s easy to see why. Beige and white living rooms provide a blank canvas that brightens up dark living room spaces and can make even small rooms look spacious and full of light.
