The key to decorating success here lies in having a master plan where all the elements complement one another and work seamlessly together. Any home designed for family living needs to be infused with a healthy dose of practicality, and all decisions need to be made with lifestyle and daily usage in mind. That said, there’s absolutely no reason to sacrifice style just because you have little ones underfoot.
