Simplicity is a commonly used word in the world of interior design. But how many of us really understand the importance of minimalism? This word usually conjures up images of neutral spaces, empty rooms, and simple textures. Is that all? Our simple bedroom ideas prove that there is a lot to this popular trend.

Minimalism starts with a minimum of the basics. Live life by depriving it of its needs. Take it from this Japanese interior designer with a visual history of minimalism that goes back generations: it’s more about what you don’t buy than what you do. Buy high quality items that have real value. When the clutter is gone, your woven bedsheets will deserve supermodel attention, your mid-century lamp will become a sculpture, and your peace of mind will be the focal point of it all, says Jarrett Yoshida, senior stylist at Jarrett.
