Furnish for different needs
Furnish your living room to suit everyone’s needs and not necessarily around the TV. You want a space where it’s easy to be together, but remember to include small oasis of calm for time alone too. Include chairs for the people who live in your home, but make sure you have some extra seats you can pull out for guests. A minimalistic, balanced look will come naturally if you don’t have too many things. Use a modular sofa that you can easily adapt to suit your space so you get just the right combination for your needs. Try one with lots of loose cushions so you can make the perfect spot to sit back and unwind.
Sort smart storage
Finding a place for everything makes it easy to keep things tidy and achieve calm and harmony. With hidden storage in the hallway you always come home to serenity. A flexible storage system like PLATSA wardrobe that can be changed and added to later is better for your wallet and the environment. Think about making a spot for bags and any laptops or devices, so you can leave the work day behind when you arrive home. Here, Nina and Pella used one of the compartments of a sleek shoe cabinet to store gadgets.
Limit materials and choose coordinating colours
If you want to create balance and harmony, use just a few colours and materials. In this flat, Nina and Pella combined white with birch wood. In the living room, they went for a low minimalistic shelving unit with birch doors, which is also used for the kitchen cabinets and floor.
Create a home spa feel
In the bathroom, the duo used a simple and minimal open storage unit in pale birch with a satin-like sheen that contrasts subtly with the tiles. “Things you don’t want to show off can go in the drawers, while soap, candles and towels can be displayed on the open shelves. The bathroom shelves are really practical, so we used them in the kitchen too for storing cooking equipment and tea towels.”
A place to relax and recharge
Make your bedroom all about rest and relaxation. Choose natural materials and warm colours and use hidden storage for clothes. Here, Nina and Pella went for a wardrobe with smart sliding doors to save space.
