Minimalism is, in fact, an art, being content with little, living comfortably and receiving aesthetic pleasure from it. This task at first glance may seem simple enough, in practice it turns out that it is much easier said than done. In fact, a beautiful, functional house, decorated in a minimalist style, is one of the most complex in design. From the designer is required not only skill, but also restraint. For those of us who are inclined to haul all that he likes home, this is sometimes an almost impossible task. Minimalistic design is not the addition of subtleties, but the removal of extra layers!
We present to your attention 70 magnificent and full of inspiration interiors that seamlessly combine form with function, grace with comfort. With such a variety, your chance to find what is right for you is big enough.
So, let's begin our journey through the living rooms, decorated in a minimalist style. Despite the choice of style, which is characterized by sophistication, modest elegance and clear straight lines, you still have the opportunity to bring character, uniqueness and individuality into the minimalist living space.

The trick is that the living room with these themes continues to be largely minimalistic, and their presence is felt as subtle shades. The lines should still be clean and clear; complex patterns should be avoided as far as possible. Minimalism in its true form hates everything except the bare minimum!

How often have you seen a minimalist living room with an amazing Arco floor lamp or a cult coffee table by Isamu Noguchi? The indisputable fact is that the decor of the mid-XX century in the modern minimalist space looks stunning. The connection between them is so natural and organic that we unwittingly ask ourselves why the 70s and 80s changed the design trends by abandoning such magnificence, born in the 50s? Today, the art of the middle of the last century gains a second wind in modern minimalist interiors.

One of the biggest advantages of minimalism is the simplicity with which you can create a focal point for the interior. Proper lighting, a spot of bright accent color or an unusual finish can instantly turn a fragment of the interior into the center of attention, which makes you turn your head in its direction and change the subject of conversation. In a minimalist design with one or two neutral tones, the background becomes an ideal canvas, allowing you to select any object to your taste. You can even change these accents from time to time to keep up with the hottest design trends.

When design experts tell you that you need to remove everything that is possible and keep only the decor that you especially like, it’s not just about saving furniture. In fact, minimalism is the creation of space.Try to leave plenty of space around each element of the decor to give a feeling of relaxed atmosphere and airiness. It is necessary to preserve the proportionality and visual appeal of the room. Minimalistic type of living space can be achieved by freeing up space not only physically, but also visually. Acrylic and glass tables, hanging accessories and "floating" shelves are very helpful in this regard.

Minimalism does not mean creating a space in which it is difficult to live, a space in which you experience only visual pleasure. In the end, aesthetics, devoid of comfort, means very little. That is why we recommend that you find the right balance between minimalism and functionality. And the key to this, obviously, is to remain discreet when choosing a decor. ..
