To achieve a modern front room, spaces and features are to be kept in mind. A modish front room should utilize space to the most, giving every aspect of the space to breathe, like the furniture, contain, artwork, and so on.
Go for a line design with more edges and fewer curves. Even while going for various shapes, maintain a balance, with straighter lines and fewer curves. The furniture should be clean and polished looking, thin glass, glossy stone, finished wood and then on.
Futuristic, or abstract looking lamps, false or ceiling lights, everything well placed in an order, subdued hues, minimum patterns, etc, are some features of a modern lounge design.

2. MINIMALISTIC

The minimalistic style may be a great choice for contemporary homes, requiring minimum maintenance and giving the house a clean and arranged look.
To reach this style, keep everything to a bottom, your furniture to artwork and further bits and bobs. Pick up subdued hues for your cushioning, artwork, wall paint, vaulting, and flooring. To add your personal touch, use hints of the decor sort of a uniquely shaped chair/table, plants, plain glass objects etc.

3. ECLECTIC
An eclectic lounge should provide a free-spirited, bohemian, curated, and artistic vibes. The best thing about the eclectic style is that there are not any rules.
You can select mix and match of curtains, sofa, wallpaper, furniture etc.
Bring out your collectables, bits and bobs from your travels, unique art pieces, etc and put them together to form a fun and interactive lounge. When picking the wall colour, go bold with offbeat and kooky colours like electric blue, purple, wine red etc.

Think an Indian-art inspired ethnic looking elbow room. Look for inspiration in local textiles, prints, artwork, handicrafts, furniture soon.
Choose ornate lamps, carved wood furniture, rich carpets, rich colours for upholstery, think metallics, beadwork, mirror work then on. While picking artwork select art and pictures inspired by the Indian sub-continent, Indian bride, and animals etc.
Elephant shaped candles or boxes, Brass lamps or candle stands, bells and trinkets etc are some decor ideas for a standard front room space.

5. CONTEMPORARY
This style is great to usher in some variety and mixture of colours and patterns into the lounge. The contemporary style includes elements of recent and trending designs in furniture, lamps, other decor items, upholstery so on.
The idea is to include artwork, patterns, textures, and colours, but keeping it luxe, sophisticated and clutter free.
Feel free to travel for the colours of your choice, but do not overdo it. When using overpowering colours like red, blue, pink etc, use them as highlights or for one or two statement decor areas like just the curtains or an armchair etc, because the incorrect use of colour can look formidable.
