I admire the elegantly minimal interiors I see in design magazines (even if my own home falls a bit short of 'elegantly minimal'). Yet somehow the pictures always leave me cold. I find myself thinking, 'yes, this is beautiful, but could anybody really live here?' Can't a house be simple and modern without feeling like a museum? Enter Apartment Therapy. in 2011, our tours featured many homes that spoke to me with both their simplicity and their vitality. In these spaces, simple color palettes and modern shapes come together with organic textures like brick, wood and leather to create a warm, lived-in modernism.
