Visionary photographer, minimal stylist, curious interior & art blogger and dedicated teacher for children with special needs. Let’s meet Michiel Bosman! He believes that adding personal, carefully selected objects to your interior won’t go unnoticed for people who visit your home and therefore give a little insight in who you are. He doesn’t care about the perfect styling, but for the feeling of meeting someone through their interior. That is simply why he is always encouraging to listen and feel what a room is telling you - only that way you can create a perfect marriage between you and your home.
During these unusual times we need to make sure that our homes are safe havens. What’s a better way to create a soulful and creative atmosphere than restyling your interior? Follow Michiel's guide on how to create different settings in your home while staying true to a minimal aesthetics. We’re super excited that for this #stayhome assignment he has used our Met Media Furniture.
I am a big fan of monochrome homes and I play with subtile hues of colors within my home. For this first setting I’ve tried to play with different textures and natural materials to keep it monochrome, but interesting as well. To get that monochrome look I’ve used accessories like a lamp, a carpet and a bowl within the same color range as the cabinet. To give it a little contrast, I’ve combined this with the wooden vase and some branches and added the black coffee table to make it a little more exciting.

I needed to play with some still life vibes as well and tried to make it a little classy by adding some timeless pieces and accessories I’ve been collecting over the years. I love the clash between the modern shape of the furniture and the natural seagrass carpet. Here I’ve used some more darker accessories to set a more moody vibe. Together with some rich details like brass and a smoked oak chair, I have created the perfect space for relaxation and a corner to read a book in.
PLAYING WITH COLOR
For a little adventure I’ve added some color to our living room. I played with colored accessories in this styling. I might not show it very often, but I do love color very much. For this styling I spiced it up with interesting shapes, materials and colors. I played with some pastel tones and added flowers to give it a soft summer vibe!
