Now we are entering into the winter months and the mercury is starting to drop, our living room becomes a more appealing place to be, cosying-up on a big sofa in the warmth. The living room sets the tone for the rest of your home’s décor, and there is a lot to consider in terms of choosing furniture, accessories, fabrics, flooring, walls, artwork, lighting, technology and layout. As this is where guests are customarily entertained and obtain their first impression of how you live, it is essential to get all the elements right to perfectly represent your individual style.
