The tricky thing about living room design is that it needs to suit all your own personal quirks while also being welcoming to friends and family. In the modern trend of open floor plans, the living room also has to mesh well with the surrounding rooms while still managing to set itself apart. 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.
While the idea of attic living sounds fabulous, ensure that you are ready for the transition from the main floor.

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.
