The living room is sort of the command center of most houses and apartments.

It’s where you entertain yourself, watch your favorite Netflix shows, and host get-togethers with family and friends.

When furnishing and decorating your living room, there are several things to consider.

Naturally, you want it to be comfortable and able to seat all of your family and guests.

You want to set up the space carefully, with good sightlines to your amazingly oversized TV and plenty of lighting.

It’s also important to choose a style that suits you. Don’t just get something you think is supposed to look good and with the current trends.

Many people enjoy creating a modern living space. And I agree modern decor is sleek and chic while also being comfortable. 

The sofa is the centerpiece of any living room, and you want to choose a color that fits your modern aesthetic and adds to the warm but contemporary feeling.

Is Green Your Thing? The Last Few Years Say So!

Decorating in earth tones gives a feeling of nature brought indoors and can work well in a modern living room.

Green sofas are perfect to build this style around.

Darker shades such as hunter green set up the natural feel. There are many fabrics to choose from, to say the least.

Velvet has a soft look and feel. It blends well with modern design and is a delight to sit on.

You can also get green leather sofas that have a modern and natural look as well as being soft. I for one, can appreciate that!

Black Leather is Timeless

A black leather sofa has a sophisticated look that you can build a beautiful modern-style living room around.

Leather is soft and reflects light to make a bold statement and can work with many color schemes.

Black leather is available on sectionals, sleeper sofas, or standard couches.

It’s also easy to match loveseats, chairs, and recliners.

Brown Leather Is Still in Too

If you like the look and feel of leather but are not a fan of black, try a brown leather sofa.

It has all the upsides of black leather, but a warmer look that can add a feeling of coziness to the room.

Brown is also easy to match or contrast with complementary pieces of furniture.

There are multiple shades of brown from deep chocolate to light tan so you have a lot of flexibility here.

A White Sofa Is Heavenly

White is a hard color to keep clean but a white sofa has a modern look that brightens up a room and makes it look larger.

You can go with white leather if you enjoy that aesthetic or choose soft velvet.

There are many other materials as well. Consider Scotchguard or another anti-stain fabric to help keep things clean.

Blue Isn’t Just for Coastal Designs

Blue is a cool color that many people love.

What I really love about blue in decor and furniture is the options are endless. There are many shades and a blue sofa can give you a modern look with multiple options for decorating around it.

As well as solid color, you can get a pattern such as a plaid or stripes. They can look so good with blue!

When designing a modern living room, start with your sofa.

There are many colors to choose from that fit this aesthetic.

Consider the size of your room and your personal tastes when choosing your sofa color, and you’ll have an eye-catching living area you’ll love spending time in!
