Another key element is life and lots of it. Add a couple of house plants here and there to liven up your living space, and flowers to bring you joy. While fresh cut flowers can make a beautiful arrangement, planted flowers or bonsais are a gift that will keep on giving possibly even year round. However, if indoor flora will induce an allergy attack for you or someone in your family, fake it with synthetic plants and floral prints.
Another vital key in the successful design of a living room is the use of natural materials. Wood, stone and bamboo will all provide us with beautiful surfaces to look at and these will also lend a genuinely warm and welcoming feel to our room. Employing natural materials such as these in our home will make it instantly appealing. And the best news of all is that these materials can be used in all manner of different areas within a living room for example; wooden wall units, bamboo book cases and natural stone floor tiles.

It is worth it if you love the Olympics. You will have fun reminiscing over the 1904 Summer Olympics, or more correctly, the Games of the III Olympiad.

You can tell them the trunk whispered this tale to you.
