2. Intelligent shelves – style “living with a system”

If you have a lot of things in your apartment and you don’t know where to put them, shelves come to the rescue. They only make the minimalist style possible. Choose shelves that can accommodate a lot of items and that only take up a little space in the room. This frees up living space to play with small children or just to relax.

Northern influence – the hygge style

The Scandinavian style “Hygge” comes closest to minimalism. It’s an interesting combination between simplicity and comfort. This design is not as “empty” as the minimalism and not as overloaded as the country style. It can radiate both cold and warmth. That is why it is so necessary in both summer and winter. In a hygge-style room, a modern fireplace, candles and other lighting fixtures are essential.
