Candy Minimal is an Instagram phenomenon—a movement of colorful, bright, and oh-so-pretty eye candy that is cheerful, modern, and fun. Make sure your eyes are ready for some major hearts action, and discover some simple ways to add this playful vibe to your home.
Candy colors: Think candy-inspired hues and use those as the basis for the palette you will use in your space. All the colors of the rainbow are fair game, with particular emphasis on mint, pink, and citrusy yellow.
White setting: When your dishes match in pretty pastel shades, that is perfection. Take it a step further and display them against a white background so the colors truly pop.
Bright accent wall: The colors in this room are just what the doctor ordered to get that dose of candy color. Most amazing shoe display ever, anyone? Achieve this look by choosing a color in two shades and painting the back wall the lighter shade.
Two-color palette: This blue and lavender combo is so pretty. When going for that candy minimal look, choose bold, bright colors and minimize anything else that distracts from those pieces. You want a clean and uncluttered backdrop. It's what you call yummy design because you just want to eat it all up.
Color blocking: Color blocking is something you might not normally think of doing on your walls because it is a bit of a risk, but seeing how stunning this looks, how can you not? Did you know that using a tangerine color in your kitchen makes people hungry? This pink and orange color palette is a dream. Clean lines are what you're trying to achieve with this look.
Retro: Colorful still-life vignettes like these pineapples add a much-needed retro spin and playfulness to any space. Get creative with it. The quirkier the better.
Matchy-matchy: Getting matchy-matchy is not a bad thing in this case. Stick with a color palette, introduce selected colors into the room in different ways, yet keep it minimal.
Pops of color: Add bright and cheerful accessories and decor to add pops of yellows, pinks, or aquas without having to paint your walls—an effortless option for adding color.
Greenery: Plants are a necessary addition, especially against these creamy pink walls and matching chairs. This is definitely my kind of color palette.
Art: Any space can look alive with a little bit of love—in the form of art, that is. Pick out a favorite piece and let it be the focal point and splash of color on a bare wall.
Light: Having large windows helps to make those colors pop even more and gives that bright, airy feel we're after.
Sweet decor: For a kid's room, work in dessert-themed accessories. They're just as lovely to look at, and they last longer than the real thing. Add them into your baby's nursery or to a playroom for that sweet touch.
Sweets: Of course, it wouldn't be "candy minimal" without a little sweet indulgence.
Do It Yourself: It's fun to get creative and add things to your home that are made by you. Here's a DIY that is perfectly retro. Which one of these ideas was your favorite? I'd love to hear about it.
