If you could only choose one room in your house where you can put your heart and soul into it, the living room should be the first one you think about. Your living room is where the most of the social part of the home life takes place; gathering with your family, watching TVs, reading newspaper, etc. It’s that area which sets the tone of the entire decorating style that you have chosen.
In this modern era, people tend to choose to have a modern design for their living room. However, the definition of modern living room isn’t clear for some people yet as it refers to the modern art movement on the interiors of the home. Modern design encompasses both the bright and bold designs of a store like IKEA and minimalist furniture at the same time.
Therefore most of the components of modern design may include clean, straight lines with no additional detail. This is slightly different from contemporary design which uses curves and sweeping lines; modern design’s lines are sharper, briefer and very thin.
The majority of modern living rooms decorated in neutral colors plus black and white exclusively. The black and white colors are used to help breaking out the neutrals and provide a focal point for the room; the colors are often introduced sparingly, and rarely used as an all-over wall color.
Modern living rooms are versatile enough to share space with other functional areas, yet the way this sharing is done makes a great difference. A lack of clutter ties into the minimalist approach to modern design. It means that you cannot have useless things in your living room like rugs or blanket, vases, and pottery. You are allowed to place a stand-lamp in the corner of the room, books and TV electronics on the table but it should be arranged neatly.
If you want to keep your living to always looks modern then you need to saves your money for redecorating, because a modern design will always change at least once every five years; because the idea of modern will change gradually over times.
