Additionally, a large green plant and plenty of pillows makes a modern living room inviting. Display a few personal items and the modern decor transforms into a relaxing environment.

Modern Living Room
This modern living room looks like a wonderful place to host guests, relax with a book, or date night with Netflix.
I love the soft gray sofa and plush rug, however it’s the small details on the coffee table and shelving that really makes it homey.
While darker than the original that’s not a bad thing. Darker colors warm up a room making it more inviting. This sofa is a Serta. They typically have well made furniture.
I love this coffee table. It’s the perfect coffee table to set the modern tone of the room. Furthermore, the table will be a great center piece to your own modern living room.
This rug will absolutely soften the look in your modern living room. It is plush and soft while still being modern with the geometric shapes.
These pillowcases will look fantastic on our grey sofa. The geometric patterns compliment the pattern in our rug.
This is a great bookcase for or modern living room. Add personal touches with favorite books or small decor items. Keep them clean not cluttered to avoid throwing off the look of the room.
Finally we have baskets to store throw blankets, magazines, books, remotes or any other miscellaneous items. Keep your coffee table free of clutter while still keeping most used items at arms length.
The biggest piece of advice to pulling off a modern living room is to keep it free from clutter. Make it inviting with soft feminine touches like plants, candles, and baskets. Use the extra storage wisely though with an extra throw and a few other items.
