Four design rules for how minimalists decorate for Christmas


Traditionally, minimalist interiors have been characterized by an almost brutal absence of clutter and rejection of ornamentation. The design philosophy strives for simplicity to enhance wellbeing. It’s a noble pursuit, but not a very Christmassy one. In fact, die-hard minimalists would likely recoil at the thought of bringing glittering baubles, inflatable Santas and tinsel into their homes. 

However, we’re seeing a new wave of ‘soft’ or ‘warm’ minimalism in interior design that is less monastic in its approach. The evolution of the trend is about having fewer but higher quality objects. There is more focus on using tactile, natural materials to create a sense of wellbeing, as well as colors seen in nature.
