Introduction of modern designs took place during early 1900s in markets. It was one welcome relief from previous styles. Modern styling will let your eye pass from simple shapes having molded plywood and metal finishes. For your living room, select neutral color for your walls like beige, which is perfect for a room where there is enough of sunlight. For flooring use glossy ceramic white tiles to enhance light available in room or daylight.
You can use both curtains and adjustable shades on your large glass windows. As a contrast, use dark wood for making an entertainment center shelve. Leave space for your television in center of it and find some space for closed cabinets and some for open shelves. You can paint these closed cabinets with beige color or make use of oak wood. Put a dark brown or black large carpet beneath chairs and center coffee table. Decorate your living room with some handicraft pottery, spiritual handicraft and a great collection of books.
