Habitat plus - Architectural

Shunning excess and fussiness, the Architectural personality likes clean lines and minimalist interiors, and will adhere to the Bauhaus philosophy that form and function should combine in all design.

Organised and efficient, these interiors may feature classic modernist pieces like Eames chairs and George Nelson lights, and one carefully chosen bold accent colour… but only if they are deemed to be truly beautiful. Often supported by a hi-tech approach, there will be hidden electronics, uncurtained vast sliding doors that glide away, honed concrete benchtops devoid of clutter, white walls and smooth silky timbers… encased in a home composed of modernist lines and simple shapes.

Colours to try: Resene Black, Resene Black White, Resene Concrete, Resene Sea Fog, Resene Pitch Black stain.

You may also feel at home as an Eco Warrior, New Nordic or Arty Retro.
