9 Minimalist Posters for the Perfect Scandinavian Home

 

Minimalism as a movement has gained serious traction and popularity over the last 5 or so years.  Think about it:

  • Minimalist fashion and clothing. 

  • Minimalist wallets and backpacks. 

  • Minimalist interior design. 

  • Living a minimalist lifestyle. 

Minimalism has become a buzzword for sure, but that doesn’t mean we should disregard it.

 
 

A background to minimalism

Minimalism as an art movement was born in New York in the 1960s, but the underlying concepts of minimalist design go back centuries and can be traced back to Islam, as well as Japan. 

At the start of the 20th century, artists were beginning to turn away from Realism and starting to experiment with minimalism in the form of blocks of colour and white/ negative space. It was no longer necessary for art to be definitive and recognisable - now it was possible to express for artists to express themselves however they wanted.

For those of you who are curious about minimalism and want a deeper look at this fascinating movement, why not head over to our All You’ve Ever Wanted To Know About Minimalism post?

Right then, let’s get to it! We’ve sorted our favourites into two categories - those with colour, and those without colour.
