Texture Is Used To Add Warmth
Where pattern, furniture, or decor accents are generally used to warm up a space, minimalismrelies on texture. Sheepskin rugs, linen pillows, and knit throws help keep a space from feeling cold and stark—but don’t go overboard.
As in all things minimalist, restraint is encouraged. “Done right, minimalism can be very cozy,” Bachman says. “Stay away from the contemporary trends of everything all white. Mix your woods, mix metals, use soft, plush textiles like rugs and pillows.”
