Anyone who has followed my design aesthetic knows that I’m pretty much a minimalist decorator. Maybe because it’s the New Year or maybe because spring is almost here, you might be thinking of cleaning up and paring down your own home’s furnishings to give it a fresh look. The easiest way to make minimalist style work is by designing around a room that has fabulous architecture; e.g. a grand fireplace, beamed or coffered ceilings, large windows with sweeping views, or dramatic arched doorways. But what if your home doesn’t have any of those perks?
