Quiet Minimalism: Interiors Inspired by Agnes Martin

In celebration of the major Agnes Martin retrospective opening at the Guggenheim on October 7th, we want to share a collection of quietly welcoming interiors inspired by her artwork. Devoid of distraction without feeling cold or stark, these rooms radiate warmth… a softer, subtler take on minimalism that employs a range of colors reminiscent of Martin’s art to create the feeling of a tranquil oasis. Enjoy!

Art is the concrete representation of our most subtle feelings.

Contrasting textured walls in muted colors add interest to an elegantly simple bath.

Abundant natural light, rosy tones and cozy angled ceilings work together to create an invitingly minimal retreat.
