Quality time: a pared-back family home

Space for both quality and alone time. A pared-back home that also allows for easy, comfortable family living. It may sound like quite the project, but by blending smart solutions with practical, long-lasting furnishing choices, this apartment in the city ticks all the boxes.

A kitchen for connection

This kitchen gets a lot of action, so hardwearing pieces make their appearance throughout, from the chopping boards to the kitchen chairs. A large dining table also means there is always enough space for multiple activities. Homework, a puzzle, and meal prep can comfortably happen here all at once.

Putting the ‘living’ in living room

Feet on the sofa? Why not! When you’ve got removable, washable covers it really takes the fuss out of everyday living. This living room is all about enjoyment and with games and books for all ages in arm’s reach, fun is accessible whenever the moment strikes.

A spot for family traditions

Finding an activity everyone enjoys can be a great way to create a family tradition. This living room has been set up for movie nights. Multipurpose tray tables are ideal for snacks, snuggly blankets are at the ready, and a movie can either be streamed or a DVD selected from the drawers of the TV bench.

Calming tones for a parental retreat

The main bedroom sticks to basics, favoring pieces made from natural materials to foster a sense of calm. A bamboo pendant lamp, wooden bedframe, seagrass rug and cotton bedding all come together to create a simple and relaxing space, with closed wardrobes keeping possessions hidden yet organized.

How to choose natural materials

Bedrooms for well-being and privacy

Whether they’re just starting school or well into teenhood, it’s possible to create bedrooms for kids to grow into. In both these bedrooms, bigger furniture pieces stand the test of time while smaller easily updatable accessories allow kids to explore their interests in a space that feels their own.

A bathroom that gets down to the essentials

A pared-back lifestyle is about being selective, not going without. This attitude is felt throughout the home, but especially in the shared bathroom, where products are kept to a minimum and drawer space divided.

A hallway for coming and going

This is a home for family life and that is clear from the moment you set foot into the hallway. Long and narrow, this space packs a storage punch with hooks, rails, benches and shoe cabinets - all playing their part in making outdoor life easy and accessible for everyone.
