Creating a minimalist interior is really all about the base color you choose. The favorite color for minimalist homeowners is probably what “greige” which is a combination of beige and gray.
Choosing the base color does not mean that you will limit to this color only. It means that it is the base layer of your new room so you can go two ways from here, choosing a contrasting color or a keep using the base color. While it may be “calming” to the eye to keep using the same base color throughout all the furniture it can become pretty boring to the eye in no time, more suitable for an exhibition than for a home.
Contrast is the way to go, using greige means you’ll get a nice contrast from all the stronger colors, namely black for example.
