You know when you’re trolling Pinterest and an image just stops you dead in your tracks. Well I spied this living room and immediately had to know more.


Just look it. The color palette, the meticulously curated details. That cool angular chair! I had to know more. A little online sleuthing uncovered that this room (and equally stunning house) was designed by Australian creative agency Huntly.

If you’ve been looking for a pitch perfect modern home – minimalist but warm, calming but intriguing, where every element has both a purpose but also beautiful form – keep scrolling. I’m taking so much inspiration from this home tour as I finally(!) get started designing the rooms in our house.

Huntly’s design ethos – complexity should be secret and that the difference is in the details – comes through in every space you see here. Because the details in each of these rooms are spot on.


While a monochromatic neutral palette sets the house’s foundation (those gray floors are so damn good), the pops of brass, forest green and the touch of pink in front of that (epic!) sideboard enliven the pale color scheme. The latte-colored linen sofa topped with creamy milk chocolate suede pillows make you want to sink right in.


Seriously need to find out where I can find that white sconce. As soon as I do will be sure to share. And that counter top? Swoon!


Another lighting home run. Don’t worry, I’m already frantically hunting for this one too.


And hello bedroom goals. The variety of textures in this space, from the wood paneling to the flannel, wool, leather and Mongolian sheep skin make it feel cozy and inviting. I’m adding this bed to my how to make your bed files. While I can appreciate homes that are packed with stuff, showcase collections or are decorated head to toe in art and family photos, I want a breath of fresh air when I get home. The world is chaotic enough. I’d like my little private universe to function as a respite that puts my mind at ease.

This house definitely does that for me. But what do you think? Are you down to simplify and create a cool minimalist space like this?

  1. Any chance someone knows a paint color code that would match that Forest Green sideboard??

  2. In one of these picture there is a forest green dresser. I was wondering where that item can be found. I have been searching for something like that.

  3. Hi,
    I think the gold round wall light is by Atelier Areti šŸ™‚
