I continue spoiling you with minimalist eye-candies, 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 to receive guests. Go for white walls, they are going to make your living room look much more spacious and airy. Grey and black can be used for contrast: an accent wall, ceiling or furniture, you can also accentuate your fireplace with black. If you think that the space is boring, play with textures and materials and add a couple of bright accents - red, copper, green, blue or of any other color. Have a look at the ideas below to find out how to do that in a stylish way!
Colors And Textures
What are minimalist color schemes? First of all, it's black and white, a classic contrasting color scheme, which is suitable for most of spaces and can be made more moody with more black or more neutral with just some touches of black. Grey and white is a softer version of classics, and you may also add other neutrals, too: beige, off-white, sandy and tan tones. If you prefer moody spaces, go for graphite grey and black as basic colors adding splashes of bright color. Bright touches are suitable for any minimalist space, don't think that minimalism is only about monochromatic rooms.
To make your minimalist living room catchier, add textures to it: wood, plywood, fluffy rugs, concrete, bricks and leather. Don't go too heavy with textures: some wood and plywood plus a faux fur rug are enough, a single brick wall will be nice or a concrete console will be a cute and bold item.
Furniture And Decor
A sofa or a loveseat is a must for a living room, you may add chairs or armchairs but all of them of a laconic design. Some minimalist coffee tables - an arrangement - will be a proper idea for your minimalist living room. Loungers and hanging chairs are optional - if you love them, and storage units should be very sleek or even moved to other spaces.
