Who doesn’t love a hefty dose of bullet journal weekly spread ideas?
Today it’s all about those minimalist bullet journal spreads! Get inspired by their use of colors, hand lettering style and much more. And of course, if you find someone you love make sure to follow them on Instagram and let them know you found them here <3
Doing a minimal weekly spread doesn’t mean it has to be ”empty”, stripped of any details or doodles.
It’s the balance between the elements of the spread that makes it minimalistic. At least that’s how I see it. I’d love to know if you think otherwise, let me know in the comments below!
And why not leave a comment and share your favorite minimalist bullet journal account or minimalist weekly spread with us all.
Ok, let’s get started with the inspiration, shall we!
Use White Space
A somewhat easy way to make a spread feel minimalistic is to use lots of white space.
Here @planwithady is using both colors and washi tape, but still, it looks minimalist because she also uses lots of white space on the top and bottom of the spread.
And it’s not always a lot of white space that’s needed, sometimes it’s just the balance of it all. Like this weekly spread from @bullet_journalish
Black & Grey
One of the easiest ways to make a weekly spread, or any spread for that matter, feel minimalistic is to use only black and grey colors.
To help me sell this point, take a look at this weekly spread from @pacificnotation. Although there’s quite a lot going on, it still keeps that minimal feel to it because of the use of black.
I know I’ve seen so many weekly spreads using black and grey, but I’m having trouble finding them now! I did however find this from @shilen.qc where she uses splashes of grey in this simple yet beautiful spread
Somehow the use of big details, like dates, makes the spread feel minimalistic. Take a look at this one from @ajournalbyannie. Her use of big numbers combined with white space makes this weekly spread feel minimalistic for sure.
Soft Pastel Colors
Using soft pastel colors is a way to be able to use colors but still keep the feel of minimalism.
Here @thebujophase is using soft pastel green to highlight the weekdays and the header for monthly review. This use of color combined with the minimal black lined leaves and her hand lettering style makes the spread feel very minimalistic, although it’s not ”empty”.
Big Weekday Letters
This weekly spread actually has a lot going on with all those boxes, but somehow it still has that minimalistic feel to it. I think it’s because of the use of really big weekday letters and keeping it clean from other decorations and colors. Black and white tend to give that minimalistic feeling just by itself.
It is possible to decorate and draw in your bullet journal, and still keep that minimalistic feel to it. Just take a look at this weekly spread from @productiveandfree:
And @lottes.bujo manages to use colors, and yet still keep that minimalistic feel to the spread:
Another minimal bullet journal, with a fun twist to the weekly layout is this from @organisedhustler:
I hope you enjoyed these beautiful minimalistic bullet journal weekly spreads!
