Designing the Perfect Minimalist Home

Silence is golden. So is subtlety. There is a fantastic mystery attached to minimalism. In real estate, this applies not only to a property, but to its owner as well. It could be that these contemporary home designs feel as though they are devoid of clues. Perhaps there are fewer pieces of statement-making art, or the sentimental treasures we collect over the years are hidden in shelving that requires a knowing push or pull where a knob might otherwise expose the secrets within.

Minimalism encourages reflection, thought, restraint, and smart conversation. This is especially true when it comes to designing an impressive minimalist home. Where so often there is a tendency to fill a space, clean, contemporary residences rely on the consideration of light patterns, conservation, and intuition, among other details.

Spacial Philosophy

$4,650,00 USD | Amagansett, New York | Sotheby’s International Realty – Bridgehampton Brokerage

Finding an identity or philosophy for a new space can come about a few ways. It may be rooted in a historical or local context, maybe it stems from an entire culture—like Elysium, a “place of happiness”—or perhaps it comes from a design principle such as wabi-sabi, which encourages its subjects to embrace the beauty in imperfection (cracks, scratches, and a warm, visible wearing-out process are encouraged).

Deliberate Materials

Price Upon Request | Mykonos, Greece | Greece Sotheby’s International Realty

Time and again we hear of fine materials being sourced from all over the globe. While craftspeople and artisans are not easily centralized for our convenience, there is something to be said for going on a hunt for local, raw materials. It is an investment in time, which can be more rewarding than originally thought. If you do outsource, do your research and look for texture—this will add a richness to your space.

Natural Elements

8.800.000 € | Costa Den Blanes, Mallorca | Mallorca Sotheby’s International Realty

Pay attention to when the light lands in your space and where. Take care not to uproot foliage unless absolutely necessary. Minimalism doesn’t necessarily speak to a starkness, but an interest in working with what is simplest. When it comes to landscape architecture, or even window treatments, that may mean leaving a towering oak exactly where it is. Working greenery into a recessed wall facade or interior courtyard is also welcome.

Spatial Focus

8.800.000 € | Costa Den Blanes, Mallorca | Mallorca Sotheby’s International Realty

Eliminating distraction is paramount to clean spaces, and paring down display items allows time for eyes to rest, shoulders to drop, and guests to take in what is there. Not to say that one feature piece should steal the room, but rather that the items of visual interest displayed allow for pause.

Scale and Form

$10,000,000 USD | Jaffa, Israel | Israel Sotheby’s International Realty

Layout is a chief element in minimalist homes, even in small spaces (an apartment may be tall instead of wide or feature a loft bedroom). In larger spaces, flow is secondary to purpose-led rooms and circles back to philosophy. How are we living in our spaces? How much time do we spend there? What elevates these rooms, hallways, or yards? Light, sound, openness? Long hallways allow for more movement; the soft curve of a staircase brings in organic form; scattered floating shelves nod to a love of linear art.

Additional design direction may seem more obvious: with pared-back color and a love of neutrals, natural materials will shine. Carry this style throughout your space (metal accents, lighting design, fabric choices). In these simple spaces, distraction is gone; we tap back into ourselves.

The Best of Europe’s Wine Region

Any oenophile worth their decanter will have plenty to say about European grapes. Some will favor the inky purples of a Tuscan blend, noting hints of chocolate, violet and brambleberry; some look to Germany for a refreshing and snappy Riesling with its tight citrus finish; others may opt for the downy, fruity notes of Greece’s Agiorgitiko vines; and more than a few will praise France for its mastery of Champagne, finding honeyed, rich flavors layered over complex and vibrant notes in an Ambonnay Grand Cru Brut.

These vines are polished, studied, authentic. And while any wine aficionado may open a long list in Paris, Berlin, Athens, or Rome and know just the bottle (or two) for any occasion, a real devotee will call the vineyards of these classical countries their own backyard.

Montepulciano, Italy

18.000.000 € | Montepulciano, Italy | Italy Sotheby’s International Realty

The property also features a proud 1756-square-meter wine cellar to house and age your collection. Elsewhere, traditional Italian styling reigns. The main villa on the hill radiates warmth and relaxation from the fine wood detailing and internal courtyard accessible from every area of the house. Soak in 360-degree views of the estate from a studio in the tower, or take a relaxing walk across six hectares of garden. Friends and family will find their own Italian retreat in the guesthouse or annex.
