10 Minimalist Interiors from around the Globe
There’s a lot to admire about a beautifully designed and styled minimalist interior. Sparse, uncluttered spaces allow each and every piece to really stand out. That makes the decision making process even more crucial. I’ve decided to round up my favorite examples of Minimalist interiors from around the globe. I hope you enjoy the tour.
1st stop – Australia
The Piermont Resort is located in Tasmania’s remote East Coast. I find this interior incredibly soothing and beautiful to look at. I can easily imagine myself spending hours here, reading, eating while admiring the view.
The juxtaposition of the wild natural brush against the sleek, minimalist interior is striking. I love the way the natural textures and colors in the interior play off the colors in the wild.
2nd Stop – Palm Beach, Florida
I’ve been a long time admirer of Kelly Klein’s style. From her years as Calvin Klein’s wife & muse to her photographic essay on swimming pools. I think she epitomizes effortless glamour.
Kelly Klein’s house in Palm Beach does not disappoint. The interior feels natural, modern & chic. I love the way the chunky abaca rug mimics the tone in the wood ceiling. The use of low profile furniture creates a relaxed, loungy vibe. I can almost hear the waves crashing outside and smell the salt air.
3rd Stop – Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam
I’m completely obsessed with this house in Ho Chi Minh City designed by Japanese firm, Nishizawa. I love the way the architect embraced the tropical outdoors from the tall metal framed pivoting windows to the palm printed tiles.
Next Stop – Paris, France
The Parisian apartment of Interior Designer Olivier Dwek coined the “S Apartment” is an exercise in Masculine, Monochromatic Modernist Minimalism. The 4 M’s! Grey on grey on grey could easily be visually monotonous, but is anything but boring here. There are so many different textures and surfaces that all seem to work together seamlessly. While slightly austere for my taste, I still admire this impeccable example of minimalism.
Urban House in Sakuragawa, Japan
Tukurito Architects designed this unique and inviting Urban Home in Japan. I love the concrete skimmed counters and the Herringbone wood table top. The exposed ribbed beams and hardwood floors add yet another textural element to this open minimalist kitchen.
Industrial Minimalist in Seattle
An Industrial Minimalist house nestled in the forest. The exposed vintage style bulbs on a pulley give this interior an industrial vibe. The mid-century furniture works nicely. I can picture this house on a rainy night with candles everywhere.
Next Stop Los Angeles, California
A light and airy home in Los Angeles hits all the right notes. The stark white walls, the windows with just a hint of natural wood used in the sill, the diagonal hardwood floors and plywood cube are all really nice touches. A very inviting space indeed.
Stop #7 – Sao Paulo, Brazil
Situated smack dab in the middle of a Tropical forest, this minimalist space utilizes a lot of wood and glass. The floor to ceiling windows provide an unobstructed view of the exotic tropical surroundings. Perched high on a hill, this house feels like a modern treehouse. The slipcovered linen sofa and wood detailing help soften this large open space.
Minimalist Apartment in Milan, Italy
This Apartment in Milan is the epitome of Minimalist Design. I love the contrast of the Classical Architecture with the modernist decor. Each piece in this space is exquisite. I’m partial to the Louis Kalff “Z” lamp and the Michael Anastassiades Pendant. That being said, the art is great, the dark oak floors and cream painted molding, baseboards & doors against the white walls; all really beautiful.
9th Stop Poland
I love the pop of color in this Vintage inspired space is. The neutral backdrop of the white walls and white washed plank wood floors created a blank canvas. A lot of interesting pieces here. I particularly like the rug and the credenza.
Last Stop – Mumbai, India
I think my jaw dropped a few inches when I first discovered this space. I think it’s breathtaking. I’m particularly taken with the large clerestory windows and the way they frame the tops of the palm trees. The use of wood and concrete throughout looks beautiful against the tropical backdrop. Who needs art or rugs with a space like this?!
That wraps up my round up of my top 10 Minimalist Interiors from around the Globe. Let me know which looks are you favorites.
