5 Modern Details to Update Your Traditional Living Room

We’re almost a month into the new year…New year; your home is ready for an update just like you! Fortunately, you can get a fresh look for your living room without major changes or breaking the bank. Here are 5 cool modern accents you can use to update your living room this weekend.

1. Hyperrealism Art – This art form mimics traditional realistic photography or art, but is designed to evoke an emotion rather than just recreate the scene. Emotional pieces of any kind provide a unique focus to the room.

2. Modern Accent Chair – An accent piece of furniture, such as a chair or table, can immediately add depth to the room. It can be a unique shape or texture; anything that breaks with the overall style of the room.

3. Modern Art Décor – Pillows and vases are a simple way to update a room. Consider adding a low sleek vase for a single rose or perhaps a knot-shaped pillow on the floor by the fireplace.

4. Curves – Soft curved lines are gaining popularity. Gone are the sleek, harsh lines of the past few years. Add a simple round mirror to a corner wall to not only add softness, but a mirror expands the area and reflects light, brightening the room.

5. Extra-Large Lighting – Design magazines are featuring giant, oversized paper lanterns. These can be colorful and boho or soft colored and subtle, but a fun and inexpensive way to add a quick update to a traditional living area.

Whatever you decide, there are endless ways to create a more eclectic living room while giving your home a boost this season.
