If you keep your furniture neutral you can go crazy on the accessories like pillows, throws or candleholder.

Neoplastiscism – minimalistic and straight forward design

For almost a century people have been fasinated by minimalistic geometric design.

less is more or doing more with less was a concept which started in Holland back in 1917 by a movement called De Stijl or in english The style. The architect Van der Rohe became a leading figure in that movement and we all know him and his work today.
