Bold, colorful furniture is a great way to add style and personality to a modern or contemporary living room. Contemporary home décor consists of simplistic elements and neutral colors. A bright green leather chair would break up the neutral tones used in other aspects of the living room.
Incorporating patterns in pillows or upholstered furniture gives a high fashion appeal to the living room. A solid color sofa can easily be paired with a patterned upholstered chair or vice versa for instant “glam” appeal. If patterned sofas and chairs are a bit much, perhaps adding a splash of a pattern in accent pillows is possible. When decorating in contemporary style, everything should be done in moderation. This style of home decorating discourages clutter and “busy” patterns. When decorating with patterns in a modern or contemporary living room, keep this fact in mind.
Decorating with a lot of color can definitely be intimidating. If you like the look but are a little intimidated to completely take the plunge, start by gradually adding color in your current living room.
Take this space for an example. Neutral colored contemporary living room furniture is paired with bright accent pillows and stools. With most of the room in a neutral beige color, the pink and coral pillows and stools really pop and grab your attention.
