Ultra compact and super comfortable studio apartment in minimalism style

Our article describes a studio apartment in the minimalism style, in which two sisters live, who have just entered an independent life. The specialists of the Taiwanese Folk Design studio were engaged in the design of its interior.

Asian simplicity is conveyed through an organic combination of wooden structures, living plants and white surfaces forming a multi-layered architectural structure. It is perfectly balanced in all respects, which provides unprecedented comfort to the inhabitants of the dwelling.

The idea of the developers was to arrange functional areas at various levels in order to maximize the efficient use of space, which was reflected in the design of places for sleeping, storing things and cooking. It is no exaggeration to say that we are facing the embodiment of a new concept of life in a big city.

The coffee table and ceramic tableware, which many are more accustomed to seeing in Scandinavian interiors, are quite organically combined with the Asian-minimalist environment.

The cooking area, with its clean lines, light colors and increased functionality due to cleverly arranged storage spaces, seems to us the epitome of simplicity and elegance. There is a suspicion that she is also very unpretentious in care.

Vertical fullness brings a touch of futurism to the interior. Meanwhile, the amazing ability to feel space and break it into components, demonstrated by the authors of the project, cannot but cause admiration.

The bathroom seems surprisingly spacious relative to the scale of the entire apartment.

The inclusion of modern decor items, such as this fashionable KIMU design lamp, which we see in the following photo, is another clever way to dilute the urban aesthetic in general very close to nature image.

A very smart approach to the design of compact dwellings is implemented here, isn’t it?

Exclusive design of the apartment in the style of minimalism

Exclusive design of an apartment in the attic

The specialists of the Italian studio Archiplan have developed an exclusive apartment design for a client from the small town of Busto Arsizio. The result of their creative efforts is a compact, but truly luxurious space enclosed in a shell of snow—white walls. It shows an eclectic mix of delightful vintage accents, natural materials and a cozy, light-filled environment.

Combining expensive wood with crystal whiteness, which forms the basis of the palette, and playful details, the designers created a fresh, soothing and at the same time cozy atmosphere. Under the pitched roof, intersected in several places by ceiling windows, there is a friendly living space that pleases the eye with the purity of lines and organicity.

The dining table looks especially intriguing: the combination of a textured wooden surface with an iron base, more appropriate in a hospital interior, brings vintage charm. The composition is complemented by diverse chairs, each with its own character and style.

And this image is crowned by a fashionable brass lamp, which immediately attracts attention and gives the design of the room a more modern look. The noble marble countertops have the same pattern as the wooden paneling of the walls in the kitchen area. Thanks to them, the space looks expensive and elegant.

The cozy living room, arranged under the roof slope, is decorated in white and decorated with live plants. Custom-made shelves and storage systems complete the exquisite design of this cozy city apartment.

Studio apartment in the style of minimalism, in which the soul and body relax

Elegant studio apartment in minimalism style

Specialists from the R3Architetti bureau present their next project, and this is a studio apartment in the minimalism style. Its compact dimensions determined the choice of the design method. However, the designers set a goal to maintain a balance between extreme brevity and coziness, and, as it seems to us, they have achieved it. A small Turin apartment has been transformed into an elegant space characterized by clean lines and a harmonious combination of colors and materials.

There is a distinct separation of public and private zones. The materials used for finishing the apartment are mostly not processed. They demonstrate their authentic texture, providing uniqueness to the interior. Polished and untreated concrete, glass and wood, light plaster and black metal frames are complemented by soft textures and exclusive decorative items.

The color scheme is also characterized by logic and balance: natural warm tones soften the snowy whiteness of the walls, gray shades borrowed from concrete surfaces emphasize the drama of dark elements. Cozy niches where the inhabitants of the apartment can read or just relax are arranged in different parts of the residential area. Designer lamps emphasize the impeccable style of the interior.

Simple, but bright, concise, but cozy, this space is a worthy example of modern Italian design. Do you agree?

Expressive minimalism in the interior, where classic and modern are combined

The combination of classic and modern in the interior

The apartment of Michelle and Jeff, where classic and modern are combined in the interior, is filled with a wonderful soothing atmosphere. This is facilitated by high ceilings, abundant light and, of course, a good sense of taste of the owners. There are elements of minimalism from Jeff, and thanks to Michelle, expressive details have appeared.

The apartment had a lot of built-in wardrobes and niches, which did not interfere at all. This meant that many things could be hidden, and the already small apartment (60 sq.m.) began to seem spacious.

General information:
Style: a mix of classic and modern

What inspired them: Michelle and Jeff have been drawing ideas from the places they visited, magazines and Internet sites for several years.

Favorite detail in the house: a dining table with a painting by Aecio Sarti, an artist from Paraty (Brazil). This element brings color to the interior and reminds residents of a wonderful journey.

An element of the living room interior

The biggest challenge is to find a compromise between Jeff’s desire for minimalism and order and Michelle’s love for details and souvenirs that should create comfort.

Friends’ opinion: I liked the feeling of openness and freedom in the house.

The biggest misunderstanding: a very beautiful coffee table bought in a random rush, which did not fit the interior of the living room at all. But our heroes managed to sell it at a price very close to the original one.

Handmade: a cat box and all the elements for a reef aquarium. Tip: do not buy anything spontaneously, guided by a sudden impulse, then you may regret it.
