Overall, living room is much more than a sofa and a television: it's a place where you should feel safe and happy. Where a nap is easy and sometimes getting up is a little hard. Each of these 20 living rooms has its own distinct personality, but all manage to create an amazing space where anyone would be lucky to kick up her feet and spend a few hours.
The star of your bedroom may be the bed, but don't count out nightstands as an essential part of the room. A bedroom without a bedside table means that things like your clock, smartphone, books and lamps are without a home.

Using calming greens, beiges or misty blues works well in areas like these because they create a peaceful, serene feeling that will help you feel more relaxed. Keep your bedding colors simple and avoid any bright colors or patterns that might hamper your sleep. Instead, add in tactile luxuries, like fur throws or sumptuous woolen blankets to add texture to the room.

While many people enjoy their master bedroom at the top of the house for the serenity, many don't enjoy the climb up the stairs. If you have small children, you may not want to be far removed on another floor. While if you have teenagers and a large family, the attic may be exactly what you need! Assess your family lifestyle and the layout of your attic in relation to other parts of the home to decide if a master bedroom attic will fit.
