Do you love clean white spaces, sleek shelves and minimalist décor? The Purist believes that less is more. Don’t over complicate, and don’t over do it. Favouring modern design, intentional placement of colours, and all things minimal, you keep it simple and make sure everything has its own place. Here are some ideas and key decor pieces to help you recreate this look!

4. Décor objects with a geometric shape, like this sculptural sphere, add interesting detail without clutter. The rustic iron finish on the Romilly Decor Balls and overlapping circles accents most paint colours beautifully.

5. You can never go wrong with an airy white window treatment. The Malini Slub Sheer add subtle detail without blocking sunlight.

Other recommendations for stylish curtains and drapes:

The Kaden Panel is a versatile and classic touch

The Alistair Panel in white adds a bold pattern without making too strong a statement.

7. When choosing a statement piece,  opt for pop of colour or a geometric pattern over distracting textures. The Charleston in this hue makes a bold statement with its well-tailored lines and gently curved back

7. Finish it off with a pillow or two! Don’t be afraid to play with patterns, particularly geometric shapes like on this Bexley Toss, or select a vibrant pop of colour if the rest of the décor is monochromatic.
