Minimalist style most closely resonates with what is uber modern. That is, it’s a style that embraces the aesthetic of essential simplicity. A minimalist space is well edited and contains only those pieces that will assist in achieving the maximum décor effect.
Transition is a little harder to define. Unlike repetition or progression, transition tends to be a smoother flow, where the eye naturally glides from one area to another. The most common transition is the use of a curved line to gently lead the eye, such as an arched doorway or winding path.
How about adding decorative beams to a ceiling to draw the eye upward? You may even opt for the look of a coffered ceiling, with beams creating a waffle-like pattern. Although coffers are usually square, you may wish to consider other regular geometric shapes. Special coffers are available that improve the acoustics in a room with a high ceiling. For a low ceiling, you can create a modified-coffered look by using flat boards instead of beams.
Finally, contrast is fairly straightforward. Putting two elements in opposition to one another, such as black and white pillows on a sofa, is the hallmark of this design principle. Opposition can also be implied by contrasts in form, such as circles and squares used together. Contrast can be quite jarring, and is generally used to enliven a space. Be careful not to undo any hard work you’ve done using the other mechanisms by introducing too much contrast!
