Modern Living Room Decor

I am always on the lookout for ways to add function and design to our living room spaces. I like to invest in classic, neutral pieces and look for pieces that have a lot of impact. This means, I like to keep a running list of items I have my eye on and wait for the best time to scoop them up. You probably know this about me already but All Modern is one of my go-to places for these key pieces. This year, I teamed up with the folks over there and am sharing some of my favorite modern living room decor!

What is modern decor style?

Modern decor is known for streamlined furniture, minimal decor, neutral colors, and a lot of contrast. The clutter-free approach with monochromatic colors can really peaceful.

Easily mixed with other styles such as boho or farmhouse, modern decor often mixes blacks, whites, and neutral shades. It might sometimes feel too harsh or cold, but this design style is easily warmed up with natural elements and texture.
