Get the Look

These C’est la VIE items are must-haves and make perfect gifts for any modern minimalist. Here are some characteristics of the minimalist style to look for and implement, whether you’re searching for furnishings for the home or fashions for you!

Simplify

Sleek objects and simple shapes are essential to the minimal aesthetic. Minimalist items are usually compact and low-profile, giving off a sophisticated look with functionality. The drastic lack of design details is usually compensated for with bold lines to create interest.

The Right Angle

Clean, straight lines are one of the most influential characteristics of the minimalist style. Think geometric shapes, crisp angles, and clean surfaces. And we thought we’d never use our middle school geometry in real life!

Embrace Your Curves

Linear edges may be essential to the style, but we like to add in some curves to balance out the look.

Live in Color

Although the minimalist style revolves around simplicity, that doesn’t mean you have to use only black and white to be modern and chic. When choosing your color scheme, try choosing two crisp, contrasting colors—or similar hues if you want to go monochromatic—and add interest in your accents.

Warm Up

Minimalist designs have a reputation for feeling cold, so add some warmth to the look by choosing pieces for your home or closet that are warmer in color, or implement textures like leather, suede, knit, or fur. The possibilities are endless!
