Colors create an atmosphere and visually change the space. The furniture offers you the desired comfort and the necessary storage solutions. But the accessories give life to the room and make it truly yours. A modern living room without decorative accessories can seem cold and impersonal, which you certainly do not want. What do decorative accessories in the living room mean? From paintings, mirrors, decorative pillows, vases, and decorative vessels to art objects, clocks, and screens. Even some blinds, curtains, and drapes can be considered decorative accessories because as useful as they are, they have as much impact on the appearance of a room. But how do you choose all these elements in such a way that your living room looks good? To look like a real modern, airy, elegant, and charming living room. To invite you to look at her carefully every time and to smile contentedly, telling you that yes, is it a beautiful living room?

A group of mirrors with frames in various geometric shapes or a statement mirror with a metal frame and some Venetian blinds or roller blinds will harmonize much better in such a decor. Umbra Modern Geometric Mirror – AVAILABLE HERE Create an arrangement on the coffee table The coffee table offers enough space for books, decorations, and flowers. However, you have to place them in a certain way so that they do not seem simply thrown at random. Gelible Geometric Glass Flower – AVAILABLE HERE One option would be to group similar elements, possibly with the help of trays. Scented candles, of different sizes and colors, on a tray, flower vase, and decorative vessels (decanters, bowls, bottles) on another tray or on a decorative tray with a high edge. Meetart Tray – AVAIALBLE HERE Combine decorative objects with paintings A closet or console next to a wall can be the starting point for an ingenious and charming arrangement. Place a painting on the wall, a few inches above the console, to create an attractive connection between the elements. To accentuate the feeling, including in the collection of decorative objects on the table (a lamp, a coral, a statuette, etc.). Let them be high enough to visually overlap the painting. To guide and delight the eyes, you must vary the heights. A group of decorative objects of the same size does not keep the viewer’s interest and tends to be boring. Contemporary Wall Art Modern – AVAILABLE HERE Here comes the “rule of three dimensions”. It says to always have in a decorative group a large element, a medium and a small one. For example, a tall vase and a tray with some small decorative vases do not make up a harmonious arrangement, because the medium element is missing, maybe a statuette or a framed photograph. Limelights Lamp – AVAILABLE HERE Exhibit collections in style Do you like to collect ceramic figurines, miniatures, old cameras, or shells? In order to have a pleasant impact and not crowd the living room, you should gather them all in one place. WUDENHOM Shelves – AVAILABLE HERE Do you have too many? Expose only the ones you like best. On a shelf, in a closet with glass doors or just above it. Another option is to highlight them by placing them in a body of shelves of a contrasting color. Decorate with pillows Miulee Pillows – AVAIALBLE HERE A few decorative pillows are often the fastest and most effective solution when you want to change the look of the living room. But how do you choose them and how to place them to get an attractive result? Avoid decorative pillows of the same color as the sofa, because they get lost in the background. If they have the same color with another element of the living room decor, however, it is very good. For example, a beige sofa with two blue armchairs can be decorated with blue pillows. But don’t limit yourself to a single shade or a single model, but combine several. Top Finel Decorative Pillow – AVAILABLE HERE Accessorizing a modern living room is also based on intuition, on the way you feel about a decorative arrangement. If it seems to you that “it doesn’t work”, try to break the symmetry or, on the contrary, to create symmetry there does not exist. Take out a color or add color, play with objects, and let yourself be guided by your creative flair, and the result will be a welcoming living room full of personality.
