Beige minimalism in a turn of the century home

I know the title of this blogpost might be slightly misleading, as this home is not the definition of minimalism per se, but I do get a very calming and serene vibe from the lack of too many things in this beautiful home, so I think it’s minimal in a way. Minimalism can take many forms and shapes I guess can’t it ?

Anyways, minimalism definition aside, I do really love the serene look of this mainly beige home and the way it has been decorated with simple pieces to match the historic details of the turn of the century building. I like the brown leather and cork textures in the living room combined with the beige area rug. The straight lines of the sofa and armchair in the sofa area go well with the wall shelving that is used as a home office as well (perfect space saving solution if you ask me).

The kitchen is entirely beige, apart from the antique built in cabinets which were restored. This color difference makes them stand out even more, which is so impressive. And lastly, how amazing is it to have an entire room for the dining table ? I don’t think this is totally necessary (I personally like it when my dinner guests can sit with me in the kitchen) but it certainly looks nice.

    I think the shelving supports with desk may be made by ELFA, and it’s nice to see a relatively affordable product customized in this way. I love the palette, minimalistic decor and of course the lovely architecture!

    I love the color of the kitchen wall and cabinets and the soft combination with the light wood shelves, plus the black and white accents as well. It’s sooo calming and interesting at the same time…
