We love Shirock's choice here, to go with an on-trend Edison bulb rather than a shade to pair with this retro sconce. "The older I get, the more minimalist I become," says Shirock. "You just realize there is less and less that you actually need. And that most of the things you need aren't things at all."
The dining room is a study in minimalism. What makes the aesthetic work are the layers of texture and finishes that keep the eye delighted. In this dining room wood meets iron, meets brass, meets leather, meets sheepskin for a perfectly layered affair. Above the dining table, another piece designed by the couple, vintage lighting that can be found in industrial buildings, was installed. The found pieces were upcycled with the addition of black paint.
Much like the dining room, this kitchen is a study in how using strong doses of cool and warm neutral colors to define a room allows a variety of other colors to fit into a palette. Here pops of yellow, green, orange and purple are brought in through everything from fresh fruit to an oxidized metal bin. Using several bright colors in small pops creates a colorful space that doesn’t overwhelm.
The master bedroom felt more modern and spacious with a white minimalist canopy bed as the focus of the room. A few warm pieces like the vintage chest of drawers and burled lamps round out the look. The large, colorful rug is like a piece of art for the floor.
Keeping with the minimalist feel of the master bedroom, the master bathroom uses a white-on-white color palette. The spa-like space features a steam bath/shower with multiple ceiling showerheads, a handheld shower and body sprays
The illusion of near mirror-imagery in this room toys with the senses and adds interest to the simple, sleek design. Bursts of red and orange have a big impact on the clean, white and gray palette. Bamboo floors throughout the house contrasts the stark whiteness and add texture.
