I love simplistic, Scandinavian design, but I wouldn't say I'm a true minimalist; I think if you strip too much back, you remove the personality and warmth from the space. Muted colours and understated furniture should create the background for everyday life, whilst adding layers of soft furnishings and meaningful objects help to tell a story. This beautiful home I discovered on Entrance Makleri, is a wonderful example where minimalistic design works in harmony with the personal details.
Don't get me wrong, I love white - in every kind of shade. But sometimes you need other colours to liven a place up and add some interest. Shades of grey/green, with hints of tan or navy help to lift the flat and creates a much more comforting environment.
The living room is pared-back with a neutral palette and cosy touches. Piles of cushions and throws add a richness to the room, whilst the limited amount of furniture helps to keep the room from feeling overcrowded.
The kitchen is a little more rustic in its colour palette and appearance. Open shelves and mismatched furniture draws in a country-home feel to the place, whilst the slick units help keep it clean and fresh.
I think it's important for your home to look beautiful, but also work well for how you live your life. Sometimes having a select few things on show can be a great feature, but also hugely useful in your home. The shelf in this kitchen includes a combination of kitchen necessities, vintage pieces and greenery, to help soften the space. It's a great solution for keeping thing easily accessible but out of the way and off worktops.
The study uses clever storage solutions to extend the space. Using an old door way as additional shelving keeps the mundane office items out of the way, whilst also allowing the room to feel bigger.
With a statement wallpaper, adding shelving would instantly bring the focus to the wrong area and reduce the size of the room. By keeping the items all on the same level, you are less occupied by the details and more taken with the overall space.
I always love looking at other interiors and spaces and taking inspiration for my own home. Could you see yourself in this flat? What features have caught your eye?
