Many elements of simplicity coordinate here to make for hours of reading and respite: the facing built-in bookshelves, the centered fireplace, the view and natural light, the overhead lighting, the hardwood flooring, and the one simple chair and ottoman.
The parallel and perpendicular lines created by the furniture placement--and even by small details like the rug's edge and dark curtain rod--contribute to the quiet of this minimalist living room.
Nothing says simplicity like symmetry. Even the three contrasting colors help create order. The beautifully-shaped table and chairs also make this entrance unique, and proves that simple doesn't mean bland.
