It is used in small patches to give a contemporary look to the house if a person can afford it he can incorporate full-length cabinets, counter-tops and the counter-tops with marble respectively. Marble is being used in different colors and different themes can be blended with it.

3. Natural Minimalism: Simplicity is the best policy is an old and modern adage and it carries with itself quality rather than quantity. Natural minimalism is all about being inspired by nature and incorporating different shades and hues of colors like grey, white, beige, sand and cream as well. All these colors can be used with cozy and warm hues as well as different shapes, materials and furniture like stone, wood, wool and leather.
