The Minimalissimo team would like to wish you all happy holidays and a very Merry Christmas. We appreciate all of our new and longstanding readers and we hope to continue featuring beautiful minimalist designs every single day of the coming year. It’s going to be an interesting one, with many exciting announcements. All the best! — Adele, Bronwyn, Carl, Gian Marco, Jana, Jillian, Jorge, Marina, Mateus, Melle, Nhat & Niels-Peter. This year’s little festive feature is courtesy of Joyce Croonen and her handmade ombre Christmas ornaments. If you’re still feeling creative, here’s how to make them: 1. Buy white ornaments or get some old ones in any light colour you happen to have lying around somewhere. 2. Hang the ornaments outside on a piece of rope so you can easily paint them. 3. Spray paint the old ornaments completely white (if you’ve bought white ones, skip this step). 4. Once they are dry, spray paint your way up with black paint. 5. Take your time: spray paint at the bottom and try to get the ombre effect by slowly enlarging the distance between the ornaments and the paint.

The simple and beautifully decorated tree you see featured is by Los Cabos based freelance graphic designer, Alejandrina Bessoberto. Her design blog is a favourite of ours, which often offers an insight into Ale’s incredibly stylish home.


Following my personal Christmas tradition, on my last article of the year, I would like to wish you all Merry Chistmas and Happy New Year, hoping you enjoy our articles. Myself and the whole Minimalissimo team are very grateful for your readership and comments. So that is why today I bring you Teeasy – a minimalist Christmas Tree created by the Argentinian designer José Manuel Rebert. It arrives as a flat sheet of aluminium, which you then need to expand to create the desired tree effect.


A new twist on an old tradition! Tannenboing is an aluminum, spiral Christmas tree. Tannenboing has over 200 small holes around the inside and outside edges, so you can still decorate the tree just like you would a ‘normal’ tree. It was designed by Michele Weingeist, and is so clean that it doesn’t take away from the ornaments hung on the tree. This also makes it ideal for shop owners with a need for a modern shop window to display their products. My interior is already so minimalist that I kind of like the old ‘busy’ Christmas tree for a change, but I know a few people who would love to have this style feat. Either way: Have a merry Christmas everybody!
