Minimalist Monday: Colourful Minimalism







Who says a minimalist home can't be colourful and comfortable? This house is a styling masterpiece. A new build devoid of period features yet oozing character through its bright pops of colour, select retro furniture pieces and playful displays of collections that have meaning for the owners. The white backdrop, lack of clutter and sleek kitchen shout minimalism yet there is a warmth and an ambience that suggest cosy homeliness. Piles of cushions, carpet and a rainbow of colour in a minimalist home? Yes it's possible. And...  that curvaceous ampersand? There are ampersands and then there are ampersands. I love this couple's confident style. Go and have a look at more loveliness over at Design Sponge here

  5. Great interiors! You're right, sometimes a minimalist look comes off a bit too clinical or boring - not with these. There is a lot of personality here.

  6. Much as I love the look of white or neutral minimalism, I have to say I don't think it's very practical and I do adore colour so this is nice and refreshing! Doesn't look very minimalist to me, tho', with so many "things" on show - interesting objects but not a very clear/clean look. Probably more realistic!
    That ampersand is quite something - love the donkey, me!!

  7. It all looks great doesn''t it? But the ampersand just made me think of having to spend time dusting in the hard to reach bits - lol!

  9. I love color. When we moved into our home, it had been a rental and all of the walls were boring beige. I proceeded to paint every room a different color, because it made me happy. Nine years later, I am moving towards having a more neutral, integrated color scheme, with bright accents, but I just don't think I can make the jump to all white. I love the open shelving look, but with a woodstove and a house full of pets, it is just not practical! Can't tell if those wonderful rainbow strand is a type of bunting or origami covered fairy lights. I have a strand in my little babes room and they make such a fantastic glow and pop of color! Thanks for sharing such a fun space on an all white winter day!

  11. Gazing these pictures I see the light and cheer of early spring. Isn't it a beautiful house!

    I'm just popping in to say 'hello' shyly! And I'm skipping off to follow you if I may!

    Warm wishes,

  12. No sorry that is just a harsh look, very little comfort, joy or warmth. Very stark. Give me cosy any day. Sometimes less is just less.... I've got chills.
