You can place a vase in the corner of your living room as a decor touch-up. And try to keep it untouched- don't put in flowers and if you do, go with white flowers like white orchid, white rose, or something like that. Just keep it minimalistic. 

Indoor plant

An indoor plant can totally bring change in the room decor and vibrance of the room. You can either hang the pothos or place some cute cactus and jade plants on your coffee table or you can place a ZZ plant over your furniture as well. Just place a few plants in your living room with neutral-colored pots to give your modern room a natural touch-up. 

Paintings

Paintings and wall art can add a big statement in a living room. It won't take any of your surface space and bring an aesthetic vibe to your room. Choose a painting that complements your room theme or contrasts your room theme. 

Chandelier

A living room without a chandelier won't be complete. As for the modern themed living room, you can go with a small crystal chandelier, or glass chandelier, or a caged chandelier. Try to keep the size of the chandelier as small as possible; so that, it won't grasp all the attention in your living room.
