Apart from being the room where one receives visitors, the living room also plays the role of the family room in many houses. It is the space where the family gathers, whether to have a cozy conversation, watch television or just unwind in quiet camaraderie with a cup of tea and a good book. It is therefore of paramount importance that the living room be the most stylish room of the house, with a beautiful décor that will be a pleasure to come home to after a long day at work – and will impress your guests as well! To inspire you to revamp your décor, we bring you 5 examples of terrible living rooms that have been transformed into charming spaces that exude beauty and elegance.
