Style and colors
The minimalist style is often used solo, nothing else as it is very self-sufficient, but you can add some other styles as well. These can be modern, contemporary and scandi styles, they go very well with minimalism. Don't go too far - just incorporate furniture or decor into these styles and nothing else.
The color scheme is usually monochromatic: go purely neutral, white, black and white, or even dark. You can add some bright accents, but limit yourself to that - minimalism is not about bold colors.
How do I avoid the boring and cold look that is so common in minimalist homes? Decide on different materials!

Textiles and upholstery are exactly what gives your minimalist living room a cozy atmosphere.
