Steal this minimalist bedroom inspiration from a fancy Hollywood Hills home

Updated Oct 12 2015

Over on my personal blog, I've been documenting my transition from over-decorated, super-colorful apartment to minimalist, calm, living situation. My radar has been finely tuned to seek out minimalist decorating inspiration. So it's no wonder, as I peruse my favorite thing in the world — real estate listings — that I'm finding home decor ideas!

Check out the sexily simple bedroom of this minimalist home in the hills of Los Angeles…

Then top it off with one piece of statement art, one architectural indoor plant, and crisp white bed sheets!

  1. I love this look, especially the throw. But I know I could never maintain it as a living space – the floor would have a pile of worn-once bras and jeans and there would be hair pins everywhere! I admire people who can live minimally. Three times a year I do a big clear out and cart what feels like half my belongings to the charity shop, and I'm still surrounded by bits and pieces that just won't stay where they belong.
    Megan if you're getting anywhere close to achieving minimalism, do tell me more!

  2. Do you keep the books in the closet? Then where do all the clothes go? ­čśŤ

    While going this bare isn't for me at this point, I do like the combo of the wood floor and that rug. More bedrooms should have wood floors! (Plus fuzzy slippers for when the floor is cold in the morning.)

    • The only way I can maintain minimalist clean in my bedroom is to have bedside tables with room for books. And big bookshelves elsewhere in the house.

  3. I'm not excited by minimalism in general, but something about this bedroom really works for me! I'm trying to figure out what it is. Maybe it's all the texture? Or maybe it's the colors. Even though they're used sparingly, they're bold and saturated without being matchy-matchy.

    Ack, you're converting me to minimalist interior design!
