Back in the days when I didn’t have children and lived on my own, I was very keen on a minimalist, clean-cut type of house. I still find them immensely restful, and couldn’t really cope with something very flowery, fussy and maximalist. But the pictures below are more aspirational than realistic for my current lifestyle. Perhaps the Bauhaus aesthetic is more appealing on the outside than the inside?

They are all beautiful but I can’t imagine living in them – I’d feel I was messing the place up!
I love the Bauhaus simplicity but attaining it is not so easy!
I love the light but also more of a cosy feeling, I think minimalist for me works in summer but on any other kind of day something else needs to function for warmth.
Those are stunning Marina. I live surrounded by clutter but seeing these makes me think I should really do something about it…. 😉
I could not live with such uncomfortable furniture or in a glass box! Clutter is not good but I like somewhere I can relax – these houses do not look made for comfort.
I absolutely love minimalism like that, Marina Sofia! I would live that way if my life permitted it. All of these places look beautiful and restful to me – very calming. I especially love that living/dining area, because I love teal. I’d be happy in any of these, though!
I do like the idea of an indoor tree, though perhaps not as in the dilapidated family home I once visited in Ceredigion which had a tree growing up from the fireplace and out through the chimney (and cats everywhere, including on food preparation surfaces…).
The HufHauses don’t have enough free wall space for bookcases! I love that top rug too, but I don’t think I could live without some clutter.
Well, let me tell you what I found… http://smallhouseswoon.com/huf-haus-modum/
As long as the sun doesn’t fade the spines 😀
