Leilani Odom. living room minimalist. May 11th , 2018.
On the front page of every glossy magazine we've all seen that image of a sleek, minimalistic living room, full of reflective, gleaming surfaces and with a very large flat panel TV screen centred on the wall. Whisper-thin sheer curtains flutter in the breeze as sunlight plays upon the white glossy furniture and laminate flooring. This is the look we aspire to achieve in our own homes, isn't it?
Now imagine that you have gone out for a romantic dinner. You've managed to get a table at that chic restaurant that's the latest in town and where everyone wants to be seen. Imagine your annoyance when instead of murmuring softly to your partner across the table, you are forced to raise your voice to be heard above the surrounding clatter. It's then that you notice the wooden floors and tables, the lack of curtains at the restaurant windows, the mirrors on the painted walls...
The minimalist look is deceptive and tricky - it may seem like it is a simple thing to do because it requires less pieces and more clean lines. But pulling it off is actually tricky because your goal is not to make the living room look bare - this is not really what being minimalist is about. The best thing to do to pull off the minimalist look is to get a few statement furniture pieces and arrange them in your living room. Keep your colors solid - never go for patterns. Choose shades that are neutral and basic. Also, your wall colors should be in the ranges of whites, beiges, or solid blacks and grays.
