How to master a cosy, minimalist living

Cosy, minimalist living rooms need to be pared back when it comes to furniture - this isn't a place for mismatched, multi-patterned pieces. Choose seating that works together, both tonally and in shape. Pull them together with matching cushions to keep things soft but fuss-free. Try to include some pieces that serve more than one function so that you can keep the overall amount of furniture down. A bench in a bay window or a footstool could double up as storage, for example.

Minimalism Done Right: How to Simplify Your Space Without Erasing Personality

When I think of minimalism, all I picture is Kim Kardashian’s barren, beige house devoid of any decorations or personality. No shade to Kim K, but IMO, her interior design style errs more on the side of an incredibly modern doctor’s office than a home. Despite our differing decor tastes, I agree with her sentiment on what a home should offer in your life. In a 2020 Architectural Digest interview, she said of her home, “Everything in the outside world is so chaotic. I like to come into a place and immediately feel the calmness.” Your home should serve as an escape from the stress of everyday life—not contribute to it—but you don’t have to strip your space down to a bland beige box à la Kim Kardashian to give it a more minimalist vibe.

What is Good Friday?

Good Friday commemorates the crucifixion and death of Jesus Christ. It is a day of solemn reflection for followers of many Christian denominations, including Catholics, Lutherans, Anglicans and Methodists. Good Friday takes place on the Friday before Easter, so its date changes from year to year. Many Christians observe the day with prayer, and some with fasting. In the Roman Catholic tradition, believers mark Good Friday by praying the Stations of the Cross and reciting other devotional prayers. On this austere day of commemoration, “church bells are silent. Altars are left bare,” explains Catholic Online. “The solemn, muted atmosphere is preserved until the Easter Vigil.”Similarly, in the Anglican tradition, “the church remains stripped of all decoration,” according to The Church of England’s official website. “It continues bare and empty through the following day, which is a day without a liturgy [an official religious rite].”

35 Neutral Living Room Ideas That Go Beyond the Pale

While colour experts are predicting that a surge of saturated hues will dominate our homes, nothing quite beats the quiet beauty of a soothing, neutral-hued room. Not only does an understated palette soothe the eye (who needs wall-to-wall patterns after a day spent squinting at your computer screen?) and signify easy elegance, but it also promises—blessedly!—to never go out of style. Living rooms, in particular, are the perfect venue to perfect a neutral colour scheme through elegant furnishings, plush carpets, and effortless accessories. But even though “quiet luxury” is trending and the “vanilla girl” aesthetic had a moment on TikTok, a neutral look does run the risk of looking, well, too vanilla, or, worse still, just plain boring.
