Loft conversions are often associated with light and space, but this atmospheric attic room shows how a dark brooding space can become a stylish sanctuary.
This loft guest room was designed by Vincent van Duysen, architect, interior designer, product designer and all-round maestro of minimalism. Despite the light pouring in through enormous skylights, the space retains an air of darkness with a hint of industrial masculinity. The raw, unfinished look of the brick walls and timber rafters is complemented by broad wooden floorboards and an entire wall of wooden folding doors, behind which the bath, storage space and other utilities are concealed. The room is sparsely furnished with carefully selected pieces, the layers of texture and subdued colour palette creating a discretely luxuriously ambiance. This is a room we'd be delighted to play guest in any day.
Love the look of timber panelled walls? Try the Scrpawood wallpaper designed by Piet Hein Eek for NLXL. Otherwise keep the accessories simple and understated, such as the Split Step from Frederik Roije and the Baltazar candle from Andrej Urem.

Japanese zen style goes far beyond minimalist white spaces. It is about thoughtful spaces which encourage the contemplation of light, colours, textures and shapes - the building blocks of nature and beauty. The Shutter House in Perth is a great example.

Minimalism is about much more than empty spaces. It is the artful use of light, colour and objects to define spaces, creating an atmosphere that is warm and contemplative. The BU1H house, designed by Igor Sirotov Architects, is a great example.
