Did you know that there are actually different types of living styles.
Here’s a short list;
Functional Living: Everything is set up ready to go, plug in or turn on. You probably prefer your treadmill in your bedroom.
Uncomplicated Living: You like to keep things simple. You enjoy a relaxed atmosphere and you are surrounded by comfort. Ikea and space is all you really need.
Beautiful Living: You entertain A LOT! Fresh flowers, Fine China and designer interior work. You’d prefer that we take our shoes off.
