We can’t stress enough how important the living area is. If we think about it, it’s one of the most versatile areas at home.

To motivate you to keep this part of the home inviting and organized, we rounded up a couple of celebrity living areas you can use as inspiration. These spaces prove that whatever the style you’re going for, one thing’s for sure—you and your guests need to feel at ease the moment you step into the living area.
