You spend a lot of time in your living room, so it not only needs to look great, but it also needs to be functional and comfortable. Mastering this can be a design challenge for sure, but if you’re looking for that modern decor inspiration, we've rounded up some living room examples to inspire your own decorating projects.
Get Weird On the Coffee Table
Instead of decorating your coffee table with the classic assortment of stacked coffee table books, opt for something subtly quirky and unique.
Hang a Chair
Nothing ramps up the fun like a playful touch in the family room. It's the perfect blend of cozy and cool.
Bring Some Texture to the Walls
If you love the soft look and feel of upholstered walls but don't want to embark on that major of a project, then try a fabric-effect wallpaper or a grasscloth.
Install Statement Lighting
Want to go a little glam without looking too showy? Add in minimal brass accents, like a metal-frame coffee table and eye-catching metallic lighting, which is all it takes to make the entire room feel special.
Hang Modern Art
Wall art is a great way to add a big statement in a minimalist living room. It doesn't take up any surface space, but it can really transform the aesthetic. Use an abstract photograph to dictate the colors of your throw pillows for cohesion.
Spruce Up Your Fireplace
Who says backsplashes are just for your kitchen? Try tiling your fireplace. It adds an artful, customized touch to the living room without being overpowering. This is especially true if you opt for neutral or black and white geometric tiles.
Adopt a Fig Leaf Tree
The fiddle leaf fig tree definitely wins the popularity contest as far as design favorites for indoor trees. And for good reason: They look great with pretty much any interior design scheme, from bohemian rooms to modern spaces like this one.It really freshens up the cooler gray tones of the living room and makes that floral-printed pillow pop even more.
