A colorful and cheerful living room designed for a family with kids

Every time you design and decorate a home, the most important thing you have to take into consideration is who it’s going to live there. If it’s a single couple then the strategy is usually creating a simple and casual décor where you can also include a few sophisticated and fancy elements. In the case of a family with children and maybe also with pets, the strategy changes and the focus goes on functionality and practicality. However, this doesn’t mean that style is out of the mix.

This living room is a great example of how you can combine style with functionality. It’s a living room designed for a family with kids. They also have a lovely pet dog. Surprisingly, the living room is very bright. But, if you look closely, you can see that everything is very well thought in there. The room manages to look stylish even when it’s filled with toys and when spills occur. The décor is very well balanced and includes all the elements necessary when living with kids and pets.

It features a white and bright background with colorful inserts all over the place. These can hide spills and make the toys look less striking. The cabinets have magnetic locks and the furniture has slipcovers. The coffee has rounded edges and, considering all these elements, the room is very cozy and inviting even when it looks so bright and simple. The color palette is not restraint and it is balanced and the textures are friendly and beautiful at the same time. It’s a very interesting and smart approach.{found on paperyandcakery}.
