When decorating, it can be easy to get caught carefully curating décor and crafting a cohesive color palette that the end result can feel overwhelming. Yet oftentimes the most striking interior design is determined not by what's there but what isn't. This is especially the case with living spaces where we have a tendency to overfill with various items we've picked up in our lifetime. Minimalist living rooms are the perfect example of where restraint demonstrates great rewards. A strict edit, clean lines, purposeful color, and plenty of open space make the impact of every element even greater. If you're a lover of streamlined design, you'll be inspired by these minimalistic living rooms that are a perfected study of pared-back style.
