Minimalist Approach to Fixer Upper Style
If you’re a fan of Joanna Gaines, you might like today’s home tour by Rafterhouse. It’s a charming home with a minimalist approach to Fixer Upper style!
The white kitchen has a beautiful metal range hood and black pendant lights. To expand the length and functionality of the kitchen island, a cupboard was placed at the end. The dark color and wood top adds depth and drama to the space.
Wood beams add a bit of warmth and texture to the vaulted ceiling in the living room. Mid-century modern chairs lend eclectic appeal to the minimalist approach of decorating .
You can see from this angle that the couch is rather rustic.
A peek in the powder room reveals a farm cart turned into a vanity.
Rather than hang a simple board with hooks in the mud room, a uniquely designed wood back drop provides instant art to the white wall.
A beautiful, black, free-standing tub in the bathroom is adorned with a simple drum pendant above.
Even the laundry room shares a minimalist approach to decorating. A simple blue flower vase is all that’s needed to lend a bit of color, allowing the patterned floor and gray brick back splash to take center stage.

This is so inspiring to me. It makes me want to streamline and declutter. The designer shows how to create warmth with a minimalist design.
I have a question. When I view so many of these pictures of living rooms/family rooms, they do not show any lighting. For example in the picture of the family room on this one, the sofa is featured; however, no lighting is in sight. I see this in full pictures of rooms all the time. Just wondering how they see in the dark……….. Hope this question does not sound too ignorant.
Loved the range hood, beams and that bathroom.People have truly great ideas, thanks.
Makes me want to streamline and declutter (again), but not to that extent. While I stay with neutral colors, I do require much more coziness. I need not worry that I will become a minimalist – its just not in my genes.
As long as there are NO barn-doors or shiplap involved, I love what I see in this house so far, though I’m not a huge fan of that dark cupboard at the end of the kitchen island.
Do you know the measurements of the wood back drop in the mud room? What kind of wood as well?
Oh my, much too spartan for me. Does anyone really live here? haha
I do like how this looks but I know minimalistic would never work for me.
