Relaxed Spaces With Minimalist Vibes


Peaceful in their resolute minimalism, these four modern home designs are a picture of harmonious decor and simplicity. Each one of the home layouts are pared back to only what is necessary whilst remaining stylish, sophisticated and oh so comfortable. The calming living room schemes revolve around crisp contemporary sofa designs rather than a multitude of extras, though none appear uncomfortably underdressed. The minimalist kitchens installed inside these homes are ultimately focussed on their prime function, yet remain curiously upmarket. Light bedrooms are sleek and inviting without a single shred of ostentatiousness, perfectly tranquil havens in which to clear the mind and settle the soul.

Located in Odessa, Ukraine this home has a light and cool aesthetic. A minimalist layout of modern furniture pieces leaves the open plan living room feeling clean and free flowing. It is a place where the stresses of the day are cleared out and filed neatly away.2 |
A compact floor lamp wraps one end of a simple modern sofa design. The couch’s pale grey upholstery set against a backdrop of light wood panelling builds a calming colour combination.

The round coffee table drops a spot of white upon the lounge arrangement, which ties in freshly with monochrome wall art over the sofa.4 |
The minimalist dining room is embraced by a white L-shaped kitchen installation. A shelving niche has been lined with light wood to showcase a collection of wine glasses, and to complement the wooden dining set. A white dining room pendant light makes a reserved addition to the eating area, becoming somewhat camouflaged against the ice white kitchen wall.5 |
Inside the minimalist bedroom, the same white and wood effect paneling is implemented to attain a smoothly cohesive vibe throughout the home.6 |
The bed’s mushroom grey upholstery makes a warm tonal pairing with the wood laminate floor.7 |
A white side table serves a comfortable reading chair by the large window.8 |
Terrazzo tiles colour the bathroom floor with earthy accents.

Home design number two is an industrial inspired interior with raw concrete feature walls. Wood laminate floors and a sleek modern sofa smooth out the rough aesthetic.10 |
A modern chandelier glides wing-like above the living room.11 |
LED ribbons burn brightly across a concrete home workspace.12 |
The illuminated shelving arrangement continues all the way into the open plan kitchen. The shelf is the only wall piece to interrupt the upper half of the minimalist kitchen, which is condensed into an L-shaped volume of base cabinets only.13 |
A black and white side table creates a punchy accent in the simple decor scheme.14 |
Grates add an industrial style overlay to glass walls.15 |
A wood panelled wall adds a warm and inviting quality to the uncomplicated kitchen.16 |
The round pedestal dining table has an unusual dinner time view of the bathroom.17 |
Illuminated wood slats form a glowing headboard feature wall in the master bedroom.18 |
Black bedside table lamps make stark additions to pale wooden bedsides.19 |
In the bathroom, decor plummets to the darkest end of the spectrum, incorporating pitch black paintwork and a black pedestal sink.20 |
A white tub is set into a black surround, and black fixtures merge with the shadows.21 |
The second bedroom is a 50/50 split of light wood and charcoal backdrops, which sandwich a serene Japanese floor bed design. A pebble pouf rests on a sandy mat.22 |
A slice of colour enters the kid’s room in the shape of a solid yellow floor bed, which allows space for the little one to grow to a big kid mattress. For now, the extra space at the foot of the bed is reserved for a special stuffed friend, under the reach of a swing arm wall lamp.23 |
The glass wall kid’s room looks out into the lounge.24 |

Located in Moscow, this 65 square metre apartment has pink undertones within its peaceful beige backdrop to exude warmth. A small modern wall sconce dots the plain wall treatment. Pale olive green accents contrast softly with the base tone.25 |
A huge bookcase stacks opposite the sofa, stocked sparingly with tomes and art26 |
The adjacent dining spot is visually anchored in place with a relatively large Bell wicker pendant.27 |
The bell pendant’s curved outline works harmoniously with arched back dining chairs.28 |
An entryway bench introduces the green decor element right at the front door.29 |
In the bedroom, a modern platform bed supplies the darker tonal piece in the scheme. Oatmeal drapes frame the large window.30 |
The arch motif from the dining room translates into an elegant vanity mirror here.31 |
A beige and matt black bathroom scheme rests under atmospheric lighting.32 |

Our last tour takes place in a spacious residence with a clean cut aesthetic.33 |
The sofa upholstery melds into the colour of the flooring and area rug, creating an arrangement that is easy on the eye to let the mind rest.34 |
The modern dining set is a light and interesting design that looks almost as though it has been folded out of cardboard. Unique ceiling lights twist and tip to direct illumination wide over the area. A one wall wooden kitchen runs behind it, cut through with clean white integrated appliances.35 |
Utility appliances are located away from the main living space, stacked neatly into a bank of pale wooden cabinets.36 |
White countertops lightly top the oak cabinets.37 |
The bedroom is a quiet array of beige tones and greys.38 |
A monochrome throw adds a dash of black to the bed set, which brings out the black cables on the bedroom pendant lights.39 |
The first bathroom is a functional space, clad in one continuous sea of beige tile. Black bathroom fixtures shake up the uniformity.40 |
In the second bathroom, white fixtures replace their matt black counterparts.
