Flickr Features: Minimalist Interiors!

Last Flickr Features we brought you lots of photos of homes considered to be futuristic. Often times, when we say the word "modern" we refer to one of our favorite styles "Mid-Century Modern" a style that was popularized in the 1950s and 1960s. Modern can refer to any number of interior decoration styles, though, one of which is minimalism. An often misunderstood style, many people at first glance consider these sleek, simple and starkly furnished rooms as cold or inhuman. Minimalism, which favors no ornamentation and function over form, can be warm and comfortable, however, and the less stuff you have the less you have to clean! We bring to you today some great photos from a Flickr group called "Modern Minimalism." Judge for yourself whether you think minimalism is cold or comfortable! And be sure to check out all the photos we didn't feature in the group yourself.
