A modern style living room is, first and foremost, spacious. You can achieve this effect even in smaller spaces, by focusing on neutral colours and choosing simple furniture without much detailing - less ornamentation, warm monochromatic colours and no patterns equal an orderly, optically enlarged space. A simple beige corner sofa and matching armchairs on wooden legs will look the part in the modern living room. The modern style likes to combine natural materials like wood or leather with reflective surfaces, thus a simple wooden oak TV unit with sleek gloss fronts and a chrome frame coffee table with the glass top will blend perfectly with the rest of the modern style decor. Decorations are scarce, and if they appear, they bear some practical function, like a wooden or metal wall clock or a steel table lamp. Basically, the main idea is to create a harmonious interior devoid of clutter - a space that allows you to breathe and relax.
