Zen barn designed by Canadian architect is example of house which urban minimalist design is applied to. The focal point of this house is to use only neutral schemes such as white, gray, and brown colors. This combination somehow looks a bit lacking thereby you need to add big red lamps with rounded lampshades as the scene-stealer of your rooms. This bold color gives fresh look when it is paired with neutral colors.
Bring large vases filled with beautiful flowery arrangements in corner of your rooms. Put gray sofas in the middle and roll out large gray rug to lay your feet on. For dining table, décor with wooden dining table and place silver colored chairs. The contrast of colors gives contemporary look yet it is suitable for urban minimalist design decorations.
