From the runaway rise of Mrs Hinch to the fashion for understated Scandi-design, we are all looking to declutter these days. And for good reason.
It’s a reflection on the fast pace of life we lead, and the need to turn our homes into a tranquil space to unwind from the stresses of the modern-day world. We’ve got some design ideas to turn your home into a minimalist space, including tips on how to accessorise with minimalist homewares from Goodhood, one of our favourite lifestyle shops.
Minimalist design ideas may be in vogue right now, but we think it’s a look that will never go out of style. A messy home can have a negative impact on how we feel, so a minimalist lifestyle is the way to go to achieve a sense of bliss – and that’s something we all want. Even Oprah Winfrey has got in on the act with tips on how to rid our homes of unwanted clutter.
We are much more conscious than ever before of the effects of over consumption on the planet, and more of us are craving a simpler life with less stuff to weigh us down. A pared-back home with muted tones and natural materials is an easy way to free you of that weight. Minimalist design is focused on simplicity and function, where nothing in your room is without a purpose, and everything is placed where it is for a very good reason, including the chic homewares sold by Goodhood.
While colour is the foundation for your minimalist home, accessories are the key to complete the look and Goodhood is a brilliant place to source those minimalist homewares, some of it hailing from as far away as Japan and Taiwan. Located in the trendy Hoxton neighbourhood of East London, Goodhood has been a fixture for style devotees since 2007, beginning with cool, sustainable clothing.
Now they have expanded with Goodhood home, selling effortlessly stylish items for every room in the house, from cool fabric organisers for the bathroom to cast iron candle holders, and tribal rugs for the living room. They even have a mat crafted from recycled plastic bottles. Find desirable items from well-known brands, such as Ferm Living and Iittala, along with emerging talent like Ladies & Gentlemen Studio and Kristina Dam, all curated to reflect Goodhood’s fashion lines.
