Much of current modern design has gone the direction of a minimalist style. To understand exactly what that means and how to achieve a sense of artistry within this style, we’ve sought the advice of several design experts who have the experience to guide us.

Architect Anjie Cho gives these tips related to building storage into a minimalist design: “It is best to have closed storage - minimize open shelving. Keeping things behind doors keeps the space clean, minimal and looking uncluttered. White storage against white walls, has the most minimal look. It's clean and sleek and blends into the wall.” full article

In her video, Cho uses a Swarovski 40mm faceted crystal ball and discusses proper cleaning of the crystal as well as three potential rooms in which to use it: an entryway, hallway, or a home's center. full article
