House trends can be confusing if you are one of those addicts always wanting to ride the wave. And it’s usually not the trends themselves, but the terms specialist use to name small changes in style from one trend to another.
We have ‘Scandinavian’ vs. ‘minimalism’ for example. When you see an image of two rooms that illustrate these two design concepts, you might be inclined to say there is no difference. Specialists beg to differ and that is because:
- minimalism refers to open-spaces decorated with industrial materials and a lot of geometrical shapes;
- while ‘Scandinavian’ means using natural materials and pale shades.
Moreover, the Scandinavian trend implies using minimalism items like these pieces of furniture we like! 🙂
