Ideas on Decorating Home

Modern interior decorating is all about clean lines and strong geometrical shapes. Hence, select furniture and light fixtures which reflect a modern design.
Whites are popular in modern home interior painting. However, if you don’t want to go absolute white, then mix two colored themes. You can paint one wall in bright color and other white, or paint half of the walls white and the bottom half of the wall into a bright color like aqua, yellow, dark blue, etc. Make sure you understand the room colors and their meaning, to pick appropriate color for individual rooms.
Though, modern home decor has bold geometrical shapes, avoid too many hard edgy furniture pieces too. Make your home comfortable by picking up large oversized comfortable sofas and chairs.
Last and the least is to add few accents that help to soften the modern look of strong shapes. Add few accents like some houseplants, wooden artwork, a potpourri, a flower vase, etc. This will make your home look more cheerful and beautiful.

Using Curved Sofas and Loveseats

61An important component while decorating the living room is the furniture you choose and its placement. Most people opt for the conventional three-seater sofa with two matching sofa chairs with a coffee table. But this arrangement is a bit plain and boring, and does nothing to enhance the beauty of the living room. Since proper choice of furniture and its layout is essential for giving a room a certain ambiance and look, why not choose furniture which is a little modern and chic. Curved sofas are one of the best investments for a living room, as they look sophisticated and contemporary. They are available in different types of designs and styles, that offer great flexibility in how you decorate the rest of the room.

Contemporary Curved Sofa and Loveseat

As I have mentioned earlier, there are many designs and styles in loveseats and curved sofas. Many people have the false notion that a curved sofa is suitable for only a large living room, and it would look out-of-place in a small room. But that is not true. If you choose the right dimension, scale, pattern, and design, it would look great in a smaller living room too. If the décor of your living room or hallway is modern and minimalistic with straight clean lines, then adding a curved sofa to the room will work very well. A brightly upholstered curved sofa with an armless design would be suitable for such a décor. Since a modern minimalistic room is done up in all neutral shades, a pop of color like sea green, teal blue, or even yellow in the sofa would make the room look more beautiful.
