Among the main materials can be isolated concrete, glass, metal and leather. The palette is built almost always on the basis of gray, black and white colors with the addition of silver, metallic and sometimes red. The varnish and chrome surfaces predominate. It sounds brutal and very stylish, but all of the above applies to cold materials that are responsible for non-residential space. And if monochrome gray-black-white scale is added to concrete and glass, then we get non-residential space in a square. That is why in the interior to minimalist concrete-glass structures you need to add as much heat as possible and on this principle to build the entire decor.

Imagine such an interior: gray floor, white walls, gray sofa, glass table on the legs. The most necessary decor in this situation is something non-linear and textured: sculptures, large canvases, intricate ethnic gizmos. Elena Teplitskaya, designer
