This is one of the most disciplined looks to pull off, both in terms of how you furnish your home and how you live your life. You want everything to be spot-on, because in a minimalist home just one false move and the impact is lost completely. To its critics, minimalism can seem cold and clinical, but, once you're masterpiece is finished, your love of purity, clean lines, beautiful materials and great design will shine through.
Your living room is free from clutter and fuss. In the minimalist living room, what's been left out is as important as what's been included. You've fallen in love with a style of almost Zen clarity, purity and orderliness that for most people (and most lifestyles) involves too many sacrifices, though not for you. Carefully chosen items of furniture orchestrate the space, for this is a symphony of simplicity and restraint. Flotsam and jetsam may not have house space, but rustic accessories can make a stylish correlative to the prevailing minimalist precision. Earthy (but not muddy!) colours work well in both rural and urban settings, while shapely and harmonious prints add a polished sense of style. Whether you're chilling out, socialising or surfing the net, your living room's a place that reflects the way you live your life.
You love good times and glamour in the bedroom. Sleep is fundamentally important to our well being. In busy towns and cities, noise can often hamper a good night's sleep. Soft furnishings really do absorb sound, and touch is such an important sense in the bedroom, from crisp, linen sheets to wool or even sheepskin underfoot. You have an almost theatrical approach to decoration in your bedroom, using classic, neutral colours and textures to create an oasis of calm.
You're a bonafide alpha-male entertainer. At home, cool, sleek, masculine lines and colours give your dining area that slick, 'stealth wealth' feel. You can avoid it all becoming too clinical through careful use of colour and texture. Avoid harsh primary colours and opt instead for linen napkins in subtle, muted colours, say, or dine by candlelight to add a touch of glamour to evening meals. When it comes to entertaining, you like quite simple (some might say 'peasant') food with big, robust flavours.
You have a place for everything and everything has its place. Decorating your home office to reflect the spirit and personality of the rest of your home really does make all the difference - especially when it comes to sitting down and sorting out the filing! The modernist adage that form should follow function is nowhere better demonstrated than in the home office: keep things simple and add your own sense of style by using a splash of colour or a single, well-chosen decorative piece.
If god really is in the details, then your home is a heaven on earth!
