Home design is all about hitting the right notes for the home’s specific spaces. In your bedroom, you need a vibe that’s conducive to relaxation and sleep. In your kitchen, you need a design that’s functional and aesthetically pleasing. When it comes to spaces like your family room, though, the answers are not always so obvious.
