2 Small apartment

A small living room is the perfect canvas for minimalism to take center stage.

Here, an artful selection of pieces create a harmonious design where even mismatched colors find their rhythm through similar hues.

From a grey sofa and coffee table paired with black accents in the picture frame and floor lamp to that final touch – a faux fur rug – it all works together gorgeously!

Look no further for apartment decor perfection!

The sleek black leather furniture with its bold hue provides a stunning contrast to any homes’ neutral tones.

And not only is it eye-catching, but that low shelf beneath the TV can be used as both an additional decoration and a side table when friends come over.

It even matches with another wall shelf behind – making this piece of furnishing ideal in tight spaces!

5 One big sofa

This design has the allure of a simple color palette with cream, beige and pale rose.

An L-shaped sectional is at its center — neutral in hue yet managing to grab plenty of attention standing alone atop an unchanging landscape.

Not even a coffee table or console can distract from it’s grandeur!

Yet there could be one roadblock: such large pieces sometimes don’t let much flexibility come into play when it comes to foot traffic flow paths… so weigh your options carefully before jumping on this stylish bandwagon.

6 Big chimney

This home captures a unique style that is both chic and comfortable.

High glass ceilings let in ample natural light, illuminating the striking contrast between dark features like the chimney and black leather sofa set against colorful geometric patterns of bright blankets draped over accent chairs.

To top it off, glossy concrete floors are perfectly balanced by a stylish yellow rug – making this design truly one-of-a kind!

7 Elegant color palette

This classic white walled living room is like a blank canvas ready to be filled with the stylish touches of modern décor.

A cozy grey sectional sofa sets off the dark brown laminated floor while an accent chair brings in subtle shades of alabaster and taupe, complimenting its surroundings beautifully.

The perfect finishing touch?

An eye-catching coffee table whose sleek design melds effortlessly into this stunning apartment dweller’s artistic vision!

Pieces such as vases bring pops of color thanks to orange and copper hues – ensuring that no detail (or splash) goes unnoticed!

Finally, a large painting ties it all together by balancing out their sophisticated palette perfectly.

8 Serene small apartment

This living room may be small, but its beauty is anything but!

With a chic combination of white and grey walls to open the space up visually, this serene oasis looks even more elegant with subtle yet striking accents.

The light gray sofa serves as an inviting centerpiece while dark gray and copper pillows set just the right mood against the jet-black blanket.

Surely it’s no surprise why they call these colors timeless classics!

9 Wall art piece

The perfect wall art can bring pizzazz and personality to any room, which is why this mid-century modern getup succeeds with its timelessly fresh blend of black, white and grey.

The living space looks cozy yet chic – the classic gray sofa ties in beautifully with the low table set and area rug’s geometric flair we all know & love from abstract artwork.

To finish off a truly livable vibe: attractive accent pieces like throw pillows galore plus decorative touches such as trays, vases, chairs… even floor lamps!

All paired together just right for an on-trend living haven that will never go out of style.

10 More wall art

This open-floor home offers a cool and serene atmosphere with its muted color palette, providing for multiple leisurely activities – from relaxing on the grey sofa to dabbling in some kitchen cookery.

Having said that, we can also see one small misstep: the loud pop art piece doesn’t quite match this tranquil space.

For optimal stylistic choices such as these wall decorations, look no further than mid-century pieces or any other artwork of subdued hues!

minimalist living room in cream and turquoise

11 Turquoise accents

Ah, this room is a masterclass in style; nothing has been left to chance!

The walls and ceiling are white as the snow – classic elegance.

But look down at that flooring: it’s like walking on clouds with its natural pale carpet.

You can’t miss the abstract turquoise painting which gives us our only splash of color here – even matching up the throw pillows and blanket too for maximum visual impact!

A pro tip from me? If interior design isn’t your thing, stick to fewer colors – ease yourself into success by pairing just one or two shades together nicely.

All I would do differently? Get rid of my area rug (if there was one), lower my wall art dramatically, then group all stools around an awesome coffee table…a budding designer?!
