We want our children to understand the value of money and how it works, but it can be tricky to discuss these concepts without sounding preachy. As a parent myself, I've found that making learning about money fun is one way to get my child interested in the topic without worrying about them feeling like we're pushing an agenda or being lectured at.

Today, you will notice many homeowners choose to have a simple and modern interior especially in their living room style. While it looks easy to achieve, a modern minimalist living room style can be quite challenging to pull off.

When it comes to furniture especially with your sofa set, go for sleek and elegant lines. Slim and monochrome furniture are in while bulky wood and heavy fabrics are out. Your decorations should revolve around simple and slim. This can be applied on most living room accent such as vases, lamps, furniture and appliance. If you are to fill up your living room with entertainment appliance, go for LED TV on a wall mount and vertical speakers.

Lights around your living room should be limited to pendant and spot lights. You can also set up modular panels with in-ceiling lights to highlight specific areas and corners. Remember that grandiose lighting fixtures are best avoided when you want to achieve a modern minimalist style in your living room. 

Lastly, your living room’s color palette should be on a modest note. Avoid bold and having to many colors and instead, go for strong contrasts such as dark blue and yellow or black and white. Grays, white and brown are also ideal choices.

  3. A romantic feel indeed. Also depends on the design of the curtains.

    Curtains, Draperies, Valances, and even Curtain rods can totally change the look of the house. I really want to change all the curtains we have in this rented house though because I don't like them. It is too grany-ish.

  5. I think these layered valances add an elegant or dainty touch to any window.

  6. I love layered valances as these add fabulous look to the usual curtain that we use at home.

  7. It's very nice to do these things when you make new arrangement for your living room. It always depends on a person's taste, even the color.
