Minimalism is one of the most popular design trends of the past five years. This design language permeates the current landscape of graphic/web design, art, architecture, and interior design.

One colorful painting on a white wall, or a red coffee table with a white chair and couch are some examples of using color wisely. The less color that is used, the more powerful the statement for the color that is there.
Minimalism is a design trend that has been around a long time, and that shows no sign of slowing down. Hopefully these tips will inspire you to create a beautiful, minimalist Maronda home.
