Acrimònia Home Tour - the minimal style of Korean houses

No frills and a passion for stools

By Margherita Verdiani

I want to continue my dispassionate (and totally useless) amateur research about the similarities of house style in countries with strong identity, or at least of those most popular on my Instagram. We saw how stereotypical the French houses were, ascertained analogies and counted a disproportionated number of dried flowers bouquets.

Today we move a little further east, in South Korea, jumping into a an aseptic mood, minimal and essential. The modus operandi is “less is more”, that's my credo and I'm trying to introduce it in my everyday life and that, of course, makes this style -so bare but luxurious - my favorite.

We are at the polar opposite: from the French baroque odds and ends to the Korean clean aesthetics. The latter is a triumph of perfectly embedded geometries. The sense of balance is a pure sense of enjoyment.

The airy spaces blend in with a sparse color palette that includes white, cream and beige. The furnishings are often in natural wood, not repainted. There is no place even for the most shy violet in Korean houses, as if every artifice is banned; everything is subtly raw, perfect in its natural state, no accessory processing seems necessary. The quintessence of neutrality.

The light filter through the large sliding windows which warm up the sterile environment. In fact there is no trace of a minimal personalization in home furnishings. No logo (blessed), nothing customized, nothing attributable to an influencer, whose face is often hidden and never exposed. And this is, perhaps, the most recognizable fact of this style: its impersonality, the absence of design object (and if you'll find it, you'll forgive my ignorance) and the lack of girly touches.

Except for some tiny apartments of young Korean girl (maybe students?) who decorate their room with poster and flowers, giving us some notes of color.

Kitchens are small and not similar to ours, in which we find tons of tools whose usefulness I often ignore. Some utensils over the crockery always ton sur ton or we have not understood.

문의 많았던 숙소에요! 여행 뿐만 아니라 촬영으로도 제주도 자주 갔었는데 최근 갔던 숙소들중 가장 마음에 들었어요 ☺️ 저녁 외식도 취소하고 숙소에서 밥먹음.. 😋 연박부터 예약 가능하니 참고해주시면 좋을 것 같아요 :) 제주도 가신다면 가보셔요 🌾🌴💚

Last note: why are there stools and stools everywhere? Could it be their hidden fetish?
