Stick to a consistent color palette
Modern living rooms don’t have to be all-white, cold spaces! You can incorporate color, but remember to keep the colors you’re working with in the same family so they all complement each other.
Colors that are characteristic of the modern style include light pinks, peaches, creams, greens, and other soft, subdued hues. Or if you want to go for a more bold, masculine look, go for different shades of gray. One of the best parts of sticking to one consistent color palette is that it makes you plan and think through your decor before you go shopping. So when you do shop, you’re actually buying pieces you need and not impulse purchases that won’t work in the room.
