London office Studio Mills has transformed an old Kraków monastery into a light-filled minimalist family home.

In order to create a minimalist interior but a cozy atmosphere, Studio Mills – founded by twin sisters Jayne and Kirsty Mills – took advantage of used pale colours, simple furnishing and bespoke joinery. The result is stunning!

White marble is used in both the kitchen and the bathroom to create what the designers call a “holistic environment”.

There are some brass details all over the property, including light switches, plug sockets, bathroom taps and radiators.

A grey sofa contrasts with a mustard yellow arm chair and a circular green side-table, while a monochrome rug stands out against the light-coloured wooden floor.

“We wanted to maximise the short daylight in winter so we created a palette to reflect the light as much as possible,” explained the designers.
