Thoughts about this Textured Modern Living Room with Bright Artwork

So I'll lay all out there. I designed this modern living room as a dare to myself. I wasn't sure that I could design a living room around my boldest abstract canvas artwork to date. The below bright red and pink print is quite a statement piece....I thought it would completely overpower a room.....but I surprised myself. It didn't. Instead it just made the room look awesome!

The magic began when I paired it with this super funky white table lamp.....once I saw this lamp. I was like...game on! I'm just going to go with 'funky.'

If your living room space allows I recommend hanging this red and pink abstract canvas print above your sofa. It is also available as a rectangle. To find the right size for your space, download the below eguide - How to Choose the Best Art Size for your Space.

To balance the red and pink abstract canvas print, I chose a dark contemporary sofa with a mid-century feel. I then went further with the contemporary feel of the space by choosing an industrial inspired concrete side table...and then I found this awesomely designed contemporary white and wooden chair that added a little extra zing to the room without being overstated.

The next two items really bring the room up a notch. The red and white pillow balances the red in the abstract canvas print by bringing a splash of red somewhere else in the room while the cow skin ottoman compliments the funky white and wood chair.

Lastly I added some big neutral items to this modern living room to provide some balance to the color and the funkiness. The white blackout curtains will allow you to watch TV in complete darkness (and makes you feel like you're in a movie theatre...it's fabulous!), while the beige jute rug will massage your feet each time you step on it.
