With life pummeling forward at such a rapid pace, we all need a sanctuary to come home to and escape the world. This is exactly the approach Collin Burry, the design director at Gensler, took when designing his minimalistic weekend retreat. "Just walking in here relaxes me and clears my head," he told SFC&G, "and when I breathe easily, my thinking gets more expansive."
Just like its location in Healdsburg, California, the stylish home reflects the laid-back aesthetic of the region with a hint of modernism thrown in. It's the perfect blend of calm and cozy. Each room is carefully edited to create accessory-free environments devoid of clutter and distraction. It's truly a breath of fresh air.
The grand dining room is simple and streamlined. The surrounding 360-degree windows flood the loft-like space with natural light, creating the perfect setting to dine in style.
Light is a feature throughout the entire home, and here, it really lifts the monochromatic color scheme of the living room.
The wood paneling in the sun-lit kitchen adds much-needed warmth to the minimalistic home.
Once again, timber flooring ramps up the warmth in this bedroom with neutral shades to add a zen-like element. Sweet dreams are made of these.
Who can resist a freestanding bathtub? Especially when it's made of stainless steel.
If you're a fan of this interior design style, then this step-by-step approach will help you achieve the minimalististic design. To see the full tour, head over to SFC&G.
