When the simplicity of industrial aesthetic meets natural textures such as wood, the interior of a home can become a romantic and peaceful space that evokes a tranquil lifestyle. This house features large spaces that are further accentuated by the muted color scheme of the walls and flooring. Its heavy use of wood for furniture such as dinning chairs and shelving is literally reflected outwards, as the outside of the house consists of wooden panels and window frames. It is clear that this house begs anyone to remain minimalistic: every object, it be a vase of flowers or a book, appropriately decorates the space it occupies to produce “organized clutter” that adds quirkiness and color to the home. Each room of the house is unique in its style, with the bathroom being as elegant as possible to give off a feeling of relaxation. The living room is appropriately designed to be the center area of comfort and warmth, with its use of colorful pottery, wall hangings, and decorations to evoke a cheerful family feeling. The kitchen is open and inviting, despite its creative use of industrial-styled furniture in pale colors, and the dining area has been strategically designed to let in the most light possible, making every morning a refreshing and pure start of the day.
The strength of this home’s interior design lies in its ability to mix mediums, colors and textures in such a way that it makes traditional decor blend effortlessly into new age simplicity. Modern touches such as the refrigerator are kept in check by matching its color to the rest of the space, and antique trinkets are shelved together to provide a vintage appeal that hints at lovely past memories. With its beauty rooted in balance, this home allows you to experience comfort without the luxuries, thus allowing the open spaces and lack of excessive objects to beckon for peace and clarity of thought. The bedrooms of the children retain the integrity of the home’s interior, while adding a youthful touch through warm colors and toys. Of course, the adult bedroom is just as comforting of a space, with its heavy use of white and cream hues.
This home is, essentially, one that embodies the romantic image of a life of elegant simplicity and comfort. Its use of the organic, combined with industrialist aesthetics of subtle brick walls and cool metal tones invites you to seek a state of simplicity in which happiness is grounded in not the objects owned, but in the stress-free, cozy lifestyle the home elicits.
