A MODERN ROOM WITH A VIEW!

Modern living room with floor to ceiling windows, two taupe sofas with yellow accent pillows, a Noguchi glass coffee table and a red Eero Saarinen Womb Chair
Floor to ceiling wrap around windows in a mid century modern home provide a great outdoor backdrop. The windows help highlight a bright living room that plays host to some modern furniture classics. A Noguchi glass coffee table and a red Eero Saarinen Womb Chair - both designed in the 1940s - are key to bringing simple modern style to this home's living space. (above)

I like this room. Simple. Modern (am now thinking modern after this weekend's festivities). Refreshing. The floor to ceiling windows are just right. I always believe there can never be too much natural light in a space...especially when the light comes along with gorgeous views. Love the trees and woods - perfectly framed by the slanted roof line. Love the muted whites, the taupe sofa and sectional, and the pops of yellow and reds - an effortless balance of color and neutrals. Ahhhh....

  4. This room is perfect. It comes so close to my style. Connected to nature, modern, yet cozy and warm, uncluttered. Simplicity at its best. I couldn't imagine another rug in there!
