Minimalism is a simple intervention that can get us out of dilemma of adopting a heavier or lighter decoration style. This wall along the corridor here in a charming tone of snow white is defined by floating shelf along the wall and just a mirror. The small hallway is lit just by a couple of bright overhead lamps and two small art objects on the shelf which are proof of minimal style.

2. Open functional areas

If the corridor opens up to room in front of each other then try to use curtains before every door to maintain privacy like in the image above. The combination of pale blue walls and light grey floor tiles give symmetry to the corridor.

3. Welcoming foyer
