Scandinavian inspired minimalist home decor is all over the blogs right now. There is something very calming about seeing a clutter-free environment with more black, white, and natural elements than color. I’m not sure if I could ever live in a minimalist home, but I have fun looking at them. Here are some great DIYs to get a small dose of minimalism.
In addition to the simple color palette, minimalism is all about functionality. These hanging jars can help you store small objects to keep your desk clutter-free.
DIY Minimal Floor Mirror – The Merrythought
Another example of form meeting function, these simple wood mirror stands make a big impact on a room. Mirrors help a room appear brighter, which is a part of having those white walls.
DIY Leaf Art – Monsters Circus
Nature is very present in minimal design, and the graphic simplicity of this leaf art is a prime example. I think these would look great in homes of many different styles.
DIY Wall Clock – The Lovely Drawer
I love the contrast of the black against the wood with this clock DIY. One thing that is drawing me to minimal design is that I wouldn’t have to worry about putting numbers in the right place for a clock craft!
DIY Mini Plant Stands – Homey Oh My
Since I’ve talked so much about incorporating nature into minimalism, it only makes sense to include a planter craft as well. I love the airy look from the negative space in these plant stands. They would look great in any modern home.
