With a white background, this contemporary living room was finished with two accent black chairs and just enough patterned pillows to create a cheery and complete look. No need to over-clutter it with furniture and accessories.
On the other hand, black is always a great choice. Essential Home and DelightFULL certainly agree and the two brands created a living room decor inspiration based around black and golden elements, with just the basics you need to have a complete living area: a spacious sofa, two side tables, a rug, a console for support and, of course, lighting fixtures.
Another stunning scandinavian inspired living room, the white and brown color palette takes over the room, creating a comfortable and visually appealing living area. Remember to add a rug to get the full complete look!

If you can’t get over the clean lines of mid-century furniture, follow the inspiration above and get yourself a mid-century modern credenza or console. It will give you lots of storage space and it won’t make your living room feel awfully full.
These rustic ladders have been trending for the past years and they make for great storage solutions when it doesn’t feel like there is a whole lot of space. Use them as an elegant accessory, where you can still store a few cozy blankets.
If you have large floor to ceiling windows in your living room, don’t go and over-clutter it with furniture and accessories. Instead, choose a few key pieces and enjoy the natural daylight and how it can make your minimalist living room feel full.
