frIDay Interior Design: Zen
The “Zen” interior look stresses minimalism, openness and blurring the line between interior and exterior. A more open layout, such as a loft, could easily fit within the Zen appeal, though with some work any apartment could also work.
How can you develop a Zen look in your apartment?
Natural, Soft Colors
Stick to colors that regular occur in nature for the most part. Really, you can incorporate any colors you like, but certain neutral/natural colors should be the foundation – especially on the walls.
Limit/Eliminate the Clutter
Remember, openness is the key, so lots of clutter will really ruin the aesthetic. Keep things minimal and optimize your space as much as possible.
Bring in Something Natural
Any room with a Zen appeal should have something growing in it. It cleans the air and complements the open feel, allowing for a relaxing energy in the space.
