Come take a peek inside my cozy minimalist home and see how to create a warm and inviting space that is filled with less stuff and more style. Our family lives in the suburbs of San Francisco and we have been updating our California ranch since we moved in 10 years ago. I am joining Marty from A Stroll Thru Life and 28 bloggers to share our Fall home tours! This year I have been leaning towards a more minimalist home that is filled with cozy comforts that soothe the soul.
See, coming home to a space that is free from too much “stuff” allows me to breathe and concentrate on family and what matters most right now. I’ll be honest, I haven’t done a ton of decorating this entire year.
I put away any unnecessary clutter, eliminating anything I don’t use on a daily basis and pared down all my decor. Less stuff out means less items to corral and put back there they belong. But, in general a nightly “pickup party” is all it takes to keep the mess in check.
I have added a bit of fall to my home with some wheat, pumpkins and cozy textures.
A few velvet pumpkins and my favorite tartan plaid blanket that I picked up on our trip to Scotland last year make for a cozy but minimalist fall home. Pillows, blankets, candles are great ways to add style without cluttering your space.
One thing that all cozy minimalist homes have in common is that the decor is pretty simple and neutral. Creamy whites, soft grays and wood tones come into play here. So, slowly start adding back what you absolutely love or what serves a necessary purpose with your color scheme in mind. Look to your pillows, blankets and even candles to add style and color to your space with cluttering it.
Soft wood tones found in accessories, baskets and furniture will help add to the warm and inviting feel as well. Candles are also another way to not only create that cozy glow, but make your home smell clean and inviting.
You will be amazed at how these ideas can make your home feel cozy, less cluttered and easier to keep clean and organized too!
