When people talk about minimalism, they usually refer to interior design. Clean furniture, zero clutter, neutral colours and simple but functional designs are the hallmarks of good minimalistic design. However, as much as we praise the style of being a mix of form and function with no compromise, we rarely think about minimalism on the outside of our homes. This is usually because minimalism is easier to apply when there is a lot of clutter in the home. The outsides of our home are usually free of clutter unless you have a large front and back yard.
