It’s about time we find ourselves venturing into the world of minimalism, with just a sprinkle of inspo from the talented and gifted songstress, Taylor Swift. Yep, you’ve guessed it—”Blank Space.” Whether you’re a Swiftie or just in search of ways to spruce up your living space, these ideas are going to infuse a breath of fresh air into your immediate surroundings.

“Got a long list of ex-lovers, they’ll tell you I’m insane.”

They might call you ‘insane’ but they’ll never call your minimalist garden boring! Black works perfectly for this, although most color lovers might want something different from a shade so dark. Using various shades can give a space—a monochromatic, chic look for cohesiveness. You do it through pots and planters in varying tones of one color: white, black, or gray work perfectly for that minimalist touch.

    HINT: Keep your pots simple and unembellished so the attention is on that glorious, lush greenery! “Darling, I’m a nightmare dressed like a daydream” might become your plant’s mantra.

    “Love’s a game, wanna play?”

    Yes, let’s play with shapes. Add geometric planters and shelves to help give your indoor garden structure a modern feel. Have hexagons, triangles, and squares to bring the feeling of dynamics while not overcrowding the place.

    PRO Tip: Use these shapes to do fun patterns on your walls. This brings character and edge, making it the perfect “blank space, baby,” for style to be injected.

    Upcycled Tin Can Herb Garden

    “I can read you like a magazine.”

    Create a minimalist herb garden that looks like it jumped out the pages of a fashion magazine. A minimalist herb garden is both functional and aesthetic. You use a few essential herbs and plant them in uniform containers. Line them up on a sleek shelf or windowsill for a clean look.

      Pro Tip: Label each herb with a simple, elegant tag. This way, you’re “new money, suit and tie,” adding sophistication to your kitchen or living space.

      floating shelves

      “Wait, the worst is yet to come.”

      “Wait, the worst is yet to come,” said no one ever about floating shelves! These are perfect for displaying your favorite plants without cluttering your floor space. Add a few floating shelves to a blank wall and curate them with a small selection of plants.

        Pro tip: combine small succulents with trailing plants such as pothos for a balanced look. Channel “I got a blank space, baby, and I’ll write your name” and let your plants do the talking.

        “Boys only want love if it’s torture.”

        Maybe, maybe not? But we just want a beautiful, reflective space! You can also add mirrored accents to exude a roomier, more open feel. Pop a mirror behind your plant display to give the illusion of depth and throw light back onto your plants.

          Pro tip: Keep it simple with this thin-framed minimalist mirror that won’t pull focus from your greenery. And never again will “I’ll be the actress starring in your bad dreams” apply to you—the feel-good starlet in your beautifully mirrored plant haven.

          Remember, keep it simple!

          Minimalism is all about simplicity and functionality.

          Try for quality over quantity and let each plant and décor piece speak for itself. And sometimes less really is more “I could show you incredible things.”

          Take a note from Taylor Swift and have your home speak just as loud and proud as her music in minimalist paradises that will keep your style timeless.
