Open Floor Plan with Intense Luminosity

Living and dining share an open plan, overlooking and welcoming each other. Clean and without ornaments, the living room invites you to relax on a large modular sofa and to dive into a natural landscape. Again, floor to ceiling transparent windows offer visibility towards the terrace neighbouring a green area. How do you create the modern rustic style in a minimalist contemporary house? Here are several tips to explore. Use unfinished wood as a dominant base, be it rough or freshly cut to introduce a bit of wilderness at home. Then, play with textiles: linen, wool and cotton! They make the decor natural and comfortable.

Natural Light, the Best Ingredient in Our Kitchen

When it comes to lighting, nature delivers the best solutions. Nothing compares to a beautifully lit kitchen! Its energy will immediately irradiate your home, making it shinny and bright. In addition, white furniture reflects light in a mild, calm way. Also, add a silvery touch to the room and you will enliven the space. How? Opt for silvery accessories (handles, pegs, standers etc) or decorations (vases, flower pots, table clocks etc). In no time, they will become the sparkling joy of the room!

Minimalist Living Room Overlooking an Urban Terrace

What about a calming view while enjoying your morning coffee? Or a fine dinner by the candle light just before sunset? You’ve come to the right place. The living room above features a large terrace by its side, extremely accessible and friendly. As you can easily notice, they both share similar design themes. This is because they are in a permanent connection through a generous transparent wall. First rule when you mix two or more rooms: look for reciprocity. Colors have to complement each other, the pieces of furniture need to act as twin counterparts.

Warm Wood and Grey Tones In A Minimalist Bathroom

This bathroom welcomes the inhabitants in a generous, naturally lighted space. Although painted in grey, beige wood and light make it warm, cozy and mild. It is a very pleasant space, perfect for relaxation and leisure after a stressing day. I adore the fact that you can take a bath while admiring a natural landscape. Last, but not least, the lighting pendants create interesting spots in the room. Also, the toilet stands elegantly in a secluded area, hidden behind a grey parapet. Thus, nothing nasty interferes with the beautiful view.

Wood seems to be the key element of the room. This natural flooring with a rough look makes the room feel extremely comfy and relaxed. You step in and enjoy the energy of a simple, vital space.

For example, traditional stools or carpets, wool blankets, clay statues, white lamps and baskets. With a pair of free standing bedside tables, you will gain space underneath.

3 Solutions For Small Bathrooms

First of all, white. Paint as much as possible in white or look for accessories and furniture in this non-colour. Space will become increasingly wider and expanded. Secondly, large mirrors. It is not a secret that they enlarge the space in no time. Those with a neat finish will look well finished and integrated in the overall design. Thirdly, avoid clutter. Select what is necessary, organise your stuff, use the drawers and its compartiments, do not exagerate with cosmetics and … simply enjoy the time there wisely.
