Creating a Pure & Simple Interior for Your Home

As an antidote to bold and bright, pared back and simple interior style is all about living slower with a calming colour palette and rustic elements. Clutter is no more and pieces that are on view are more considered and crafted from natural materials with sumptuous tactile qualities. This design ethos embraces functionality, and clean lines, the design is kept paired back as creating visual calm helps to create emotional calm.



KEY ASPECTS OF A PURE & SIMPLE INTERIOR


FUNCTION & FORM

A key aspect of a pure & simple design is that of form and function.

Space is used as efficiently with the use of numerous innovating and functional furniture designs.

Furniture pieces should be made to last rather than be replaced.

Keep furniture lines clean, with smooth rounded edges associated with mid-century modern design work well when creating a pure and simple interior.

Declutter and get rid of any objects that you don't require.

 

WOOD & METAL

Natural hardwood tones bring a sense of warmth and texture to the space.

It is also popular to bring in metallic finishes in lighting and accent pieces.

Big and clean light fixtures are the favoured way to bring some shine into a pure and simple interior.

 

NEUTRAL COLOUR PALETTE

In addition to wood and metallics the main color palette of a pure & simple interior is neutral whites, greys and beiges.

Muted colours like dusty pink and seafoam greens have gained traction as the pop of colour.

Walls are usually kept white, any neutral colour on the walls will still allow you to achieve the look.

The neutral colour palette helps maintain a clean, calming appearance in the space that’s in line with the idea of being in harmony with your environment that’s a part of a pure & simple design philosophy.

CHILL OUT ZONE

Create a corner that you can retreat to, add a spacious chair with cosy home accessories such as a cashmere throw or velvet cushions.

Design this space in neutral colour tones and add plants to make this haven tranquil and soothing.

 

LIGHTING

Use several types of lighting in order to create various levels of illumination from mood lighting to full brightness.

Pendant lamps are a common choice for overhead lighting in a pure and simple interior, but candles may still be used for tabletop settings.

Windows are frequently left bare, but if used light fabrics like linen are the preferable choice.

 

WARM ACCENTS

Minimalism is so important to a pure and simple design, the few accents that are used are functional ones.

Pillows with geometric patterns or abstract designs will add comfort as well as subtle colour and texture.

Warm textiles like sheep skins, wool, mohair, or soft cotton throws add a feeling of warmth and cosiness as well as another layer of texture.

Ceramic vases can also add colour and texture and serve as a holding place for fresh flowers.

 

Achievable for almost any budget, the pure and simple style has a timeless quality to it that’s worth considering bringing into your own decor, especially if you don’t want to have to change it up often.


Focused around warm functionality, flawless craftsmanship, clean lines, and an understated elegance, there’s a lot of reasons to embrace a pure and simple interior for your home.
