I continue to spoil you with minimalist eye candy, and today’s roundup is about living rooms. A minimal living room is an absolute must for any modern home – such a laconic yet cozy space is perfect for spending time next to a fireplace or entertaining guests. Opt for white walls to make your living room look much more spacious and airy. Gray and black can be used as a contrast: You can also accentuate your fireplace with black as an accent wall, ceiling or furniture. If you think the room is boring, play with textures and materials, adding bright accents – red, copper, green, blue or any other color. Check out the ideas below to find out how to do this in style!
colors and textures
What are minimalist color schemes? First and foremost, it’s black and white, a classic contrasting color scheme that works for most spaces and can be made more moody or neutral with just a little bit of black. Gray and white is a softer version of classics, and you can also add other neutral colors: beige, off-white, sand and brown. If you prefer moody rooms, choose graphite gray and black as base colors to add bright pops of color. Bright accents are suitable for any minimalist room. Don’t think that minimalism is all about monochromatic spaces.
To make your minimalist living room more catchy, add textures: wood, plywood, fluffy rugs, concrete, brick, and leather. Don’t be too heavy on textures: wood and plywood and a faux fur rug will do, a single wall is beautiful, or a concrete console is a cute and bold object.
furniture and decor
A sofa or love seat is a must for a living room. You can add chairs or armchairs, but they all have a laconic design. Some minimalist coffee tables – an arrangement – are a good idea for your minimalist living room. Loungers and hanging chairs are optional – if you love them, and storage units should be very elegant or even moved to other rooms.
Add a fireplace for coziness and keep firewood nearby. Rock pendant lights or chandeliers to create and enjoy a mood in the living room!
