This collection of minimalist Asian interior inspiration, which comes to us courtesy of Domicilio Furnishings Design Team , features rooms from four separate home designs that whilst not overly complicated, all exhibit eye-catching flair. Each incorporates small pops of inviting color and art collections that make every one of them feel like a welcoming home.
Our first modern Asian home looks out onto a courtyard that features a complimenting minimalist design, encased in pale walls that similar to the those of the adjacent interior.
Inside, tiny orange accents have been added throughout the swathe of light neutrals, in the form of scatter cushions and decorative ornaments. A cleverly designed double sided sofa allows the inhabitants of the home to look either out onto the serene courtyard, or to sociably face into the living room itself, without the need for additional space-eating seating arrangements.
Low level lighting creates a cozy glow along the length of the room, in absence of a fireplace. Simple black shelving, in a distinctly oriental style, provides plenty of room for display pieces-though the collection is well spaced to prevent the area from appearing at all cluttered.
The shelving in this dining room has been decorated with delicate teapots and china, which act as little gems of color against somber gray alcoves.
Two toned chairs of the same style bring different elements of the room together, as well as adding interest to the simple suite in an understated way.
Ignoring the regular use of segregating solid walls, the design of this extraordinary home, in Terrassa, Barcelona, explores the use of softly screening plants and liberating transparent divides. The Catalonian house covers 200 square meters, and yet just 10 linear feet of actual wall has been implemented. Surprising, the result is not just a wildly social space, but has precious moments of intimacy.
The interior embraces a loft feel with exposed brick faces, rustic ceiling beams, industrial ducting, and concrete floors. However, the stark backdrop almost fades away with the introduction of warming woods and plush furniture, amongst the homes pretty landscaped heart.
The indoor plant beds are extremely appealing on a Zen level, having a calming and soothing effect; these earth and pine bark filled cutaways are probably not a recommended route for pet owners though, as a digging dog could make quite a mess, and a cat in search of a luxury litter box may do something even worse!
The scattered plant beds are filled with local species of shrubs, which undulate interestingly in height. Each indoor plant bed is brightly illuminated in false light, as though from a sunny skylight.
The kitchen diner has banks of stainless steel units that reflect the light and continue the industrial décor look. The dining table lighting too is of an industrial feel, with two casual bundles of bulbs creating the illumination.
A sunken seating area forms a cozy and intimate living room, littered with fun and plush cushions to cuddle up on.
Six Eames chairs add a moment of swish style the stripped back home style in the dining area, though their subtle color way blends in perfectly with the setting.
Wooden countertops, central island surface and window blinds soften the metallic kitchen design. Open sided shelving prevents the overall look from appearing too cold and clinical.
The television in the lounge area can be clearly viewed from the dining and cooking areas too.
The floor treatment changes to define the different areas of the open plan home.
One of the few privately walled areas of the home is the bathroom, though the wash basin here still benefits from an indoor green view.
A natural oak and sewer grate headboard forms a floating wall, behind which a walk-through closet can be accessed.
