It’s one thing to employ minimalist décor when you must i.e. when you are low on space but it is quite a feat to see how a large space can master the style without coming across as plain or empty. This sprawling landed does just that with lots of white hues, natural elements, symmetrically-spaced solid furniture and unadorned lighting. This décor style works well to play up the expansiveness of this home perfectly.

With a slightly modern take on minimalism, perhaps even a hint of an industrial theme, this home comes equipped with an air of standing and importance; modern and regal. We love how the stone cold slabs of the countertops give the kitchen a ‘professional’ finish while the rest of the home has city-chic style with perfectly matched lights and darks.

3. Casa Desa, Taman Desa

White hues power through this home expanding the space and giving it an extra-warm, homely wash. You can barely tell just how petite it actually is (less than 1, 400 sq. ft.), thanks to the clever styling of toned-down pieces, floods of natural light and woody elements.

The cool, level-headedness of minimalist décor thrives in this modern contemporary landed! There’s much to love about this space, from completely raw cement features to its ode to old-school windows. The stylishness of this home is further enhanced by warming wood pieces reminiscent of Scandi décor combined with a touch of unfussy, Japanese themes.
