Tip 1: Go for black and white

By choosing various shades of white as a general colour scheme for walls and ceilings, you can open up the walls of a room without knocking them down.  A light hardwood floor can be offset well by white walls. You may think that white is traditionally boring, but it lends itself well to creating a light look.

Black, gray and silver combine to make a sleek look that is clean but cool. Opt for black walls and a silver or gray ceiling. Furniture can either be black or a similar shade to the ceiling. Keeping to the minimalist feel, a simple rug and vase or two will not weigh down the room.

Instead of matching furniture, try pairing together the same design in slighter variations of one shade. The combination can be subtle but pronounced enough to give a sleek look. A shade like cobalt next to a lighter charcoal gray keeps the lightness of the minimalist look.

Tip 2: Think tiles

White ceramic tiles provide a glossy, open feel to any living room. A minimalist living room uses less lamps and more natural light. Bigger tiles can look amazing with the right chosen furniture. Leather, in particular, can be stunning atop a tiled floor that shines like a mirror.
