Staging Minimalism- Less is More

Updated: Sep 29



THE TREND TOWARDS MINIMALISM- WHY AND HOW SOMETIMES LESS CAN BE MORE.

One of the staging trends to watch is the move towards minimalism. Stagers are increasingly leaning towards a less is more approach. Clients seem to be embracing this look in large numbers. Gone are the days of layers, texture, filling every corner, pattern mixing and vignette story telling. Though these techniques still have their place, more and more stagers are leaning towards simple, monochromatic furnishings, simple art and minimal decor. Just like minimalism in other aspects of life, today’s modern stagings are focused on creating spaces for a collective exhale, embracing nature and elegant ease. Minimalism isn’t just for modern homes. It’s a trend that works for numerous other styles including farmhouse, industrial, coastal and transitional. In many of these stagings the only decor you might find is greenery- realistic looking greenery. Minimalism as a design style is defined by clean lines, reductive living, uncluttered, monochromatic and simplicity. Serenity and simplicity that does not overshadow the design of the home. Sometimes the style direction is only subtly referenced in the art or type of texture that is introduced.
