An open floor plan can pose some interesting decorating dilemmas. One must think about storage, functionality and coherent style while trying to harmoniously designate different areas of living space without the help of walls.
This three floor house design by NAT Achitecten with an open floor plan is a fantastic example of how this can all be achieved in a modern, minimalist style. The fundamental color palette is neutral and monochromatic making use of black and white, grey, brown and beige. Pops of color are introduced with soft furnishings, like those lovely sofa pillows, and art work.
To help delineate different areas, they make use of a wooden box like structure, which also helps with storage, and simpler items such as area rugs.
