I'm so glad you recognized that not all minimalists are into the monochrome scheme! As an aspiring minimalist myself, I love color. I would even call my style "boho-min." It's about removing the clutter so the most beautiful and joyful things can be fully appreciated. For instance, in the last photo all the things on and around the fireplace would probably be removed except the painting and maybe the plant and black bowl so that the gorgeous mantelpiece would be better focused for the eye and more useful. :) I'm going to give you a shout-out to our FB minimalist group.
