Want a modern space, but not too modern? You can decorate a modern living room with character - without losing the fresh feeling that modern furnishings give you.

Pick a few modern pieces of furniture and lighting to anchor your space (these items can transform with your style through the years), and layer in unique lighting and accessories to make your space feel like home. I love to add character with art, pillows, rugs and decor items.
