House Tour: a Welsh barn that toes the line between simple and sparse

I am a great lover of simple homes – what better way to get the most from much-loved home accessories than against an uncluttered backdrop – but how minimal can a home be and still feel homely? This new-build barn in West Wales is an interesting case to consider as the fabric of the building has been purposefully left as a shell by its architect owner. Could live comfortably here?

    Lovely post! If I’m honest, I’m not sure about the wall treatment but can appreciate the ‘honest’ aesthetic the architect was championing here. That aside, I love the simplicity of this space and the patina achieved by the materials. To me, the walls make it feel cold and ‘unfinished’, whereas I love the floor and the beams! Add a big tufty rug in front of the woodburner and it’s perfect :)
