Living Room. Thursday , June 22nd , 2017 - 07:00:32 AM
Go for simple designed lamps and shades. Tiffany styles and faceted crystals are a no no. Lamp bases made of plain ceramic or wrought iron and contemporary, spare brass designs work well with the minimalist style. Use recessed fixtures, like cans, for ambient lighting. Ornate chandeliers and fussy shades over faux-candle lights do not enlist the minimalist designs. Let the windows be simple or leave them bare for maximum natural lighting. Various options for the windows could be tab-top curtains on a simple wrought-iron pod, plantation shutters, 2-inch-wide wood blinds and Roman shades. Remove all unwanted clutter from your living room. Abundant pictures on the walls and tabletop tchotchkes should all be removed. They just do not form a part of the minimalism. Instead of small clusters of pictures, a single large picture on each wall would be better. Floral chintz, shelves packed with knick-knacks, and ornate wrought iron just have to be removed from the living room.
Skip the toss pillows. If needed, use a couple of unembellished ones and forget the fringe, lace and flounces. Put away the coffee and end tables also. You can consider the Parsons Styles, simple cubes of wood, laminate and clear acrylic or glass-topped and stone-topped metal tables.
Spare the floor coverings and wall treatments. A simple area rug on a hard-surface floor would just be perfect. Paint the walls in one color. Choose a soothing neutral color to get a minimalist look.
