Excerpt from Living Room Color Ideas Modern In Seattle :
The selection of bright colors and the correct placement of artwork will give a trendy metropolitan look to your living room. The modern style is nothing more than an aesthetic, giving priority to how an object looks, rather than its actual function. Furniture that has the appearance of simple curved lines is the right choice. It is best to only choose one or two warm accent colors so as not to overwhelm the eyes. Apply this warm accent color to objects such as lamps, pillows or rugs.
