Minimalist Wallpapers – The Autumn Collection
It wasn’t that long ago when a desktop wallpaper meant some grim tile and an 8-bit colour scheme. Over the years as our home computers have grown ever more powerful, so has the quality and size of the displays we use with them. This has lead to an explosion on the wallpaper scene, with some truly amazing images now available for us all to personalise our desktop real estate.
I’m a big fan of minimalist wallpapers, but I think it’s a word that suffers from horrendous abuse on wallpaper sites. 95% of the wallpapers uploaded and tagged as minimalist are about as unadorned as an L.A. pimp’s teeth. But I’ve been looking high and low for perfect simple little minimalist wallpapers over the last few months and I’m now ready to show off the autumn collection – 14 great images to adorn your desktop, but not get in the way of work. Shout out to Hellishere for the cool iMac PSD. On with the show …
