Spring Family Room with AllModern

What better time than Spring to freshen up my family room? Spring is when I feel the need to re-arrange and lighten things up a bit. Blue is my go-to color for decorating so of course it stays. Blue is calming and coordinates so well with other colors. Any other blue lovers in the house?
Over the years, I've gravitated towards the less is more approach. I hate clutter and am all about a clean and functional space. Too much stuff can look untidy and chaotic. Minimal and modern please. Our storage ottoman has come in handy to store movies and games and corral all the little stuff that tends to junk up a space. The ottoman also doubles as a coffee table.
I've decided to add some plants in the mix. Bring the outside in. I had a fiddle leaf fig a couple years back. It lived a good year until winter came and then it went south. I'm all about a good faux plant but can't beat the health benefits of a real plant. I picked up this monstera and I love the leaves. It's a beauty right? Instead of keeping it in the pot it came in I wanted a modern planter to elevate the look. This white Stafford clay planter was the perfect find. It's large and really makes a statement but also lends itself to the minimal look I'm going for.
Look at this cutie little plant.
I also lightened up this space by bringing in a new rug. I won't lie. It took me a minute to really love it because I was so used to seeing the darker trellis rug in here before. Now that I've lived with it, I love it. It's got a mix of grays and blues and a playful pattern that I'm hoping will disguise any spills that may happen in here.
What are doing to usher in spring in your home? Do you take the minimal approach or do you go all out with accessories?
