Living Room Decor Ideas

Before the late 19th century, this space of a house was called a 'parlor'. The term parlor was derived from a French verb 'Parle®' which means 'to speak'. The term was given to the space because it was mainly a place for sitting and talking to various people. To this day, the origin of the living room still represents what it's about. Other than the dining area, the living room is that one place in the house where the family gathers to sit down and chat and just spend time together. With that in mind, it' always a great idea to get your living room looking at its best with a few decors. Need some ideas? Check our tips below.
