Decorative Vs Minimalist: Two Homes Under 50 Sqm (With Floor Plans)

In exploring inspirational homes under 50 square metres, we’re going to submerge in two very different stylistic approaches. Our first apartment tour is a highly decorative neoclassical interior, revelling in the frills of classical boiserie, curious sculptural art, custom metalwork panels & doors and luxe marble statement walls. In stark contrast, the second half of our study takes place in a home design that is sprung from a minimalist mindset. Furniture is sparse, leaving negative space to say more than the sum of contents, and storage is a hidden commodity. Follow along to the end of each apartment tour to see the detailed floor plan.
