The living room is a very special place. This is where we can unwind, read a book, put our feet up, gather as a family, and entertain guests. Aside from the dining table, the living room is where most memories and stories are shared. That is why it’s important to keep this space cozy and relaxing at all times. Since the living room sets the tone and mood of your entire house, decorate it with style which will surely impress all your family and friends.

Preppy Style

Who says preppy inspired designs are just for country clubs? You can surely incorporate this style into your home by opting for prints with navy and white stripes, plaid, or nautical designs. Keep the ambiance cool by choosing lighter hues such as white, light blue, and yellow for curtains and fixtures.
