Using natural tones and minimalist designs, you can attain a functional and sophisticated space. A few tips on how to best furnish an apartment in a minimalist contemporary aesthetic is as follows:

At its core, minimalist design is about having a clean and organized space.  Therefore, keeping the space clutter-free is paramount. Go through all your possessions and only keep items that spark happiness or truly bring value to your home. If it’s something you don’t truly love or use often, consider donating it or getting rid of it. This will give you a great starting point for furnishing your space.

Choose contemporary pieces. When selecting furniture, look for pieces with clean lines, neutral colors, and simple design elements. Think of Scandinavian-style and Italian designed contemporary furniture for inspiration. Matte Leather, stone, and raw metal are some great materials to consider. Avoid anything with too much detail or ornate elements.

Integrate that accent wall. Not with a painted wall, but with a select art piece / or wall mounted item. Consider wall mounted minimalist book shelving, and pairing it up-lighting to create a dramatic aesthetic.

Choose a muted color palette. The final element to consider when furnishing a minimalist contemporary apartment is the color palette you are going to use. Stick to a neutral palette with muted colors such as white, black, grey, and the raw natural materials. Avoid bright colors or anything too loud or distracting.

By following these tips, you can easily design and furnish an apartment in a minimalist contemporary aesthetic. You can add a timeless and sophisticated look to your home with just the right pieces and colors.
