Austerity is the ultimate luxury in decoration

When buying a house in Madrid, it is common to have several aspects in mind such as the location or the number of rooms. But if the house comes furnished, it is also important to take into account the type of decoration it offers. This is why austere decoration has become elegant. 

Until recently, austerity had a negative connotation until it came to the world of decoration. Thus, its meaning has been turned around and now refers to a discreet and simple appearance whilst being minimalist, rustic and even vintage.

The truth is that when it comes to decorating a home, it is not necessary to have great accessories or too many of them in the room. What is needed is to have good taste and simple furnishings as the key to success. With this type of decoration everything is advantageous as you do not need to spend too much money and you can use the spaces in a practical way.

Austerity is not synonymous with boring and, because the word alludes to old objects, it can also relate to rustic, retro, or even vintage. These are elements that bring much charm to any room in the form of upholstery, wood in its rustic version, unpolished furniture. The soft and neutral colours win over in this class of decoration, along with monochromatic designs that provide a unique minimalist touch.

The end results are highly cosy and fresh environments that provide plenty of light, where nature also plays an important role. Floral prints in soft or cold tones as well as first-class materials, such as wood are all suitable for both inside and outside. The bright and airy decor is protagonist in these spaces with light-coloured curtains that allow plenty of natural light into the rooms. 

In an austere-type of decoration simplicity is the name of the game. Rooms that have been decorated with style, follow a very functional minimalist design.
