How To Style a Minimalist Kitchen
I am here with Mandy Nelson. She is a photographer and she has this beautiful minimalistic style. She has this brand new kitchen and we’re gonna show you a few tips on how to get a minimalistic kitchen through styling, and I’m excited because it’s, a departure from what we’Re usually asked to do and it’s.
A cool task yeah I’m excited you’re here and I can’t, wait to see what you guys do. , a minimalistic style, is all about using restraint and thoughtfulness in your selections and it’s much harder than it looks.
start with the color palette. You can see here we have a white kitchen with dark hardware and a dark island, and then that just sets the foundation for us to just run with neutrals. We have stuck with all neutral colors, except for just some natural greens and then some natural wood tones,
You can see we’ve been trying things taking stuff out, stepping back looking at it and really what it comes down to is that achieving this look is about the composition of the pieces together and not just about how much stuff you have
Nandi chose to all open shelving in in our kitchen and to me that decision is the true test of a minimalist, because every single selection needs to be both beautiful and function really. Well.
You can see here that we have put all of everyday dishware on the bottom shelf. We have plates glasses bowls everything within reach and close to the dishwasher, and if your dishware is also doubling as decor, you might as well spring for the good stuff before we film today, we developed these tips and, as we were implementing them, it was interesting to See kind of the challenges that we came across and one of them was constantly paying attention to a really restrained, color palette and we would add in a book and then it would feel too bright or, and we’d.
Take it away, and so, where we’ve landed. I’m really happy with because you have lots of whites and glass, but then we added in some natural woods, which really add some warmth but aren’t too poppy. We , ve talked about the shelves, but now let’s.
Talk about the countertops. You can see that we have put a few things on them, but there is no clutter and the things that are on the counters are all things that are useful. So these baskets and the Bulls those can be used for fruit, a catch-all for mail all very functional, and then we put this cute crock by the stove.
So you can hold your you know, spoons and cooking utensils, and then we added some fresh flowers, because I can’t help myself: okay. So when designing that or MySpace, I was a little bit nervous about doing all open shelving, and so I thought of studio Magee since they’re in Salt Lake too, and I was really excited when they said they could come help me out with The space and just to make it more functional and keep it minimal, and so it’s just been a really fun project and I’m super grateful for their help and I love how it turned out:
Well. Thank you so much for having us over. I have absolutely loved this challenge. It has been so fun for us to get to style in a more minimalistic way, and I’m, going to take some of things that I learned and you for sure use them and our next project yeah.
