Organic Modern style, with its soothing mix of contemporary furniture shapes and tactile textures, has always been a contemporary look that embraces the comforts of nature. If you want a living room that's ultra comfy and welcoming, Organic Modern is for you. Historically known for soft color palettes and neutral tones, I've noticed a rise in a new kind of Organic Modern: The Moody Organic Modern. This style features the same beautiful hallmarks of its origin style — clean lines and warm materials — but there's a moody color added into the mix.

Ariene and Daren's TV lounge is a small space, but it's filled with cushion-y, cozy furniture in soft, pastel hues. A fluffy blanket and a round ottoman give texture to the nook.
