Home of The Month: The New Classic
"Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication." - Leonardo Da Vinci
A philosophy that rings true in this cosy home by Design Collective Studio. Clean lines and soft neutrals take centre stage, creating a refined space that is the definition of a new, modern classic. Read on to find out how you can draw inspiration and nail the same look!
Using a selected palette of neutrals, a consistent touch of modernity is applied throughout the house. Whitewashed walls allow the living room to look doubly spacious and clean, while calming shades of dove-grey in various textures accentuate a soothing atmosphere.
What better way to create an elegant contrast than implementing some sleek black lines? Polished black door and window frames bring structure and linearity to the home's predominantly white interiors.
A grey-themed kitchen may sound boring, but not when you match different textures of slate to add hint of variety! Balance and brighten the space with glossy white cabinetry; now, don't you feel that the kitchen looks especially clean and neat?
Staircases may be one of the most under-appreciated parts in a home, but not so for this statement-making stairway. Soft, white walls provide negative space, helping to frame the curved, Bauhaus-style railings set in warm parquet.
Sprucing up your empty ceiling? You don't need a shimmering chandelier to complete your look. Go for a modern alternative instead, just like this home's bird-nest style ceiling fixture that blends in subtly with the bleached-out surroundings.
What could be a better match than a combo of light wooden furnishing coupled with relaxing white tones for your bedroom? This perfect harmonisation creates an atmosphere of serenity and comfort. Finish the clean, organic look with small potted plants or artisanal pottery.
Morning rush no longer feels like a dread when you step into the bathroom with calming hues. With built-in cabinets camouflaged as mirror, you can easily get rid of any unwanted clutter, whilst achieving that sleek and stylish bathroom look.
Getting too comfy with all that white? Jazz up your study room with a splash of bold blue instead! Don't forget a cushy armchair where you can cuddle up for a good read.
