This Is How Your Living Room Should Look, According to Your Age

Sacha Strebe

First, let us preface the following by saying age is just a number, and we certainly don't want to discourage you from a purchase based on your year of birth. But while you should technically be able to style your home however you want with whatever you want, your style does inevitably vary each decade. The truth is, things change and every stage of your life is met with different needs, wants, and challenges. For instance, decorating in your 20s is usually limited by budget (or the tastes of your roommate), while your 30s and 40s are often met with the practical demands of a growing family.

As we mature, so do our tastes (along with our salary), and we typically spend more time creating our intimate sanctuaries that match our life-acquired palettes. Just like your personal style, developing an interior aesthetic takes time and confidence. So to help you enter every decade of your life in the grandest style possible, we're launching a new series, Style by the Decades. To kick things off, we're starting with the home's pride and joy: the living room. So if you've just rolled over into a new age era, or are just about to, we found the perfect pieces to bring your living room to life.
