Having a living room like this is more within my reach, because these people still have lot of eclectic stuff around.
Here's another room that has a lot of stuff but stays modern because of its materials and clean lines.
If you look closely, there is still a lot of stuff in this room, but it is balanced by a lot of open space so you don't even notice.
Everything in this room draws the eye to the fireplace. The warm tone of the sofas and chairs keeps things from being too stark or bachelor pad-y.
This floor is T.D.F., and the artwork absolutely makes the space.
Another minimal room that lets the furniture and the view be the main focus.
Here the room extends out onto the patio, visually, and literally (when the door is open).
Uniformity keeps this room modern, texture and color keep it fun. Check out that chandelier! It's totally unexpected in a modern space.
Oh lord, I use this room over and over. I love it so much I might as well marry it.
The space planning in this room is perfect for encouraging conversation; the amount of open space keeps it modern.
This room is transitional - I'd call it "Modern/Traditional."
Modern Ski Chalet Chic
Conversation pit retro modern actually looks very current and up to date here.
I love the Rat Pack Palm Springs vibe here.
This is so simple and warm and clean. The rug absolutely makes the room.

There is actually A LOT going on here, but the white keeps it modern.
