7 Minimalist Apartments that will amaze you with their simplicity
The minimalist movement started more than fifty years ago with inspiration from traditional Chinese and Japanese architecture. Now, it is among the most used strategies to decorate the interiors of the house. Several influential designers have adopted this technique by quitting upon the traditional methods that use too many decorations and details. Whatever may be the reason for that, there is little doubt that minimalist apartments have their own, separate and serene charm which distinguishes them from others.
Here are 7 such apartments that resonate with beauty and simplicity because of their minimalist treatment:
This apartment from Dyel Design makes optimum use of natural light which is an integral strategy in any minimal apartment. The colours too are primarily white or its variants. This helps the light to serve the whole place after getting reflected from the low-key white walls making the whole space of functional value to the resident.
2: Minimalist Black and White Interior
Most noticeable aspect of this apartment is the way the light gets scattered from the dark furniture elements and radiates around to make the room a lot brighter. This provides the apartment with a spacious look. The decorations and furnishings then add on to the charm and complete this place by giving it a simple and serene texture.
In this interior space the white (minimal) colour is used very cleverly to set apart a drastic contrast against the front entrance which uses rich wooden elements along with fountain and stone features to create a spacious interior. The minimalism theme is quite obvious from one look at the picture which loudly calls for white. However, the apartment borrows rich colours from modern style to complete this modern minimalist apartment.
Modern Minimalism is catching up pretty fast these days, of which this apartment is another example. This apartment relies on taking the light weight colours of the minimal to contrast with dark hues from the modern for highlighting the straight lines that frame the confines of the apartment. The lighter shades of the homogeneous tiles on floor accentuates the wooden tone of the furniture to create a warm and lively space.
Voila has successfully pulled off this modern minimalism look by treating the bedroom with industrial and rustic accents and maintaining the minimal approach for the other parts of the house. This has resulted in a warm and vibrant bedroom while the rest of the house maintains the purity and serenity which is often associated with a minimalist apartment.
6: Feeling Too Minimalist
Minimalist designers often talk about not going too far in keeping away the extra elements. This is a case where one can understand their concerns. By keeping an exposed brick wall, the designers have been able to achieve that old Scandinavian charm while keeping intact the elements of minimalism in this apartment. Subtle changes that do not affect the overall plan are now getting easily accommodated into minimalist structures to serve different purposes as per the requirements of the owner.
For the final item on the list we return back to the pure and harmonious minimalist space. This is an apartment that is bathed in white and neighboring shades – the floor, the walls, the draperies, all of them are composed from very light colours. This has given the apartment a very sleek appearance and the lines and curves get highlighted from the fusion of white light to enhance the minimal living space.
