More is less, and this is a minimalist style motto that’s currently high on the agenda. No unnecessary objects, no excessive colors and no crazy decor – just the bare essentials and pure chic! If you’re still hesitating about whether or not you need minimalist spaces in your home, take a look at our roundup of the most stylish minimalist living spaces.
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! It can be a marble or stone-clad fireplace, a metal coffee table, comfortable furniture made of various fabrics and carpets. Textiles and upholstery are exactly what gives your minimalist living room a cozy atmosphere.
