Go for simple designed lamps and shades. Tiffany styles and faceted crystals are a no no. Lamp bases made of plain ceramic or wrought iron and contemporary, spare brass designs work well with the minimalist style. Use recessed fixtures, like cans, for ambient lighting. Ornate chandeliers and fussy shades over faux-candle lights do not enlist the minimalist designs. Let the windows be simple or leave them bare for maximum natural lighting. Various options for the windows could be tab-top curtains on a simple wrought-iron pod, plantation shutters, 2-inch-wide wood blinds and Roman shades. Remove all unwanted clutter from your living room. Abundant pictures on the walls and tabletop tchotchkes should all be removed. They just do not form a part of the minimalism. Instead of small clusters of pictures, a single large picture on each wall would be better. Floral chintz, shelves packed with knick-knacks, and ornate wrought iron just have to be removed from the living room.
Mediterranean Style Hallway. The walls are well painted in Venetian plaster and almost all wood beams are hand-hewn. A beautiful hallway lies to connect family room and the courtyard. This beautiful space build with traditional spanish colonial design. You can see it from the vaults in the ceiling as well as the wrought iron doors and sconces. The floor describe the style very well, a nice combination from travertine and walnut floors.
