4 Decorating Ideas Inspired by a Minimalist Condo Home
Keep your space simple, cozy, and functional with these tips
Minimalist interiors help achieve a relaxed, no-fuss vibe that many homeowners would like to recreate at home. If you've always wanted a clean look for your space, you can learn a couple of decorating ideas inspired by Tata Enario's condo home.
Tata prefers "anything clean." She was inspired to work on a minimalist home after a visit to Japan and when she fell in love with Muji-style interiors. If you want to slowly transform your space into a minimalist haven, here are tips and ideas to keep in mind:
In the bedroom
As with the dining area, where there are no dining chairs, you might be surprised to see that Tata's bed has no frame! You can do this as well—especially if you only have a limited floor area in your bedroom.
For the side table
Just like in any part of the house, we don't want to have a cluttered shelf or table! Take inspiration from this this piece that houses the owner's gadgets, essentials, and an adorable Totoro poster. If you want to control mess in an instant, you can also invest in shelves, catchalls, and other mini organizing must-haves.
Maximize every surface
Tata made this papercut artwork in memory of her dog Free, a Basset Hound. The handmade memento, together with a few postcards, casually dresses up the dining area windows. We don't usually see decor, stickers, and other knicknacks on windows but this is a welcome idea—especially if you don't want anything up on the walls.
In the dining area
Tata’s simple yet charming dining area sports only a dining table from her parents. Pillows serve as seating pieces, as Tata prefers to sit on the floor, because it feels comfier. You can also create a Japanese-inspired dining area by opting for a low table and floor pillows as seating pieces. Complete the look by adding an area rug.
