The minimalist decorating style is an exercise in restraint, where space, lighting, and objects play equally important roles. Minimalist style demands you to pare down your furnishings to the bare essentials so that you’re left with a set of curated objects that deliver maximum impact. Far from being boring, this style is bold, functional and highly memorable. Remember, less is more.

Not everybody is fortunate enough to have a huge master bedroom in their home. But there is no reason at all that a small bedroom can’t be every bit as gorgeous, relaxing, and just plain full of personality as a much larger space. The trick is to make smart use of the space you do have. Keep furnishings scaled to the room, and most of all, not be afraid to show off your decorating chops.
