Is Your Home Ready for Some Football?

Decorate Now for Big Viewing Parties

SOUTHBURY, CT -- (Marketwire) -- 01/04/13 -- The great American pastime of football can be a great motivator to decorate your family room for the big viewing party season. Whether it be the playoff games that lead up to the Super Bowl, or the Super Bowl itself, big viewing parties are all the rage after the holiday season. Decor&You® Founder and President Karen Powell has some tips on getting ready for these neighborhood gatherings.

"This is an ideal time for getting your home ready for both year-long, quality family time and for celebrating big viewing parties," says Powell. "As the centerpiece of the home, there are some unique and fun ways to make your family room comfortable and inviting for you and your guests."

1. Wide-screen TV - Make this the primary focal point in the room. Mount it on the wall or place it safely on a console unit where the components can be hidden but still accessible.
2. Sectionals and recliners - Select seating that is comfortable, functional and stylish. Sectionals and recliners are the most popular choice for family rooms where comfort reigns, setting the stage for both optimal viewing and conversational purposes.
3. Cocktail and end tables - Create a buzz around interesting surfaces that make your space functional for chips and dip as well as complement the seating and make their own statement.
4. Accessories - Tie it all together with accessories that make an impact with color and style. Consider colorful pillows for sectionals, lamps for accent lighting, and art for the walls. These small touches will make any room more interesting and inviting.

"Having a wide selection of products can make a real difference in creating a beautiful, comfortable home," says Powell. "With choice, you can achieve a look that is truly individual. The problem is that most of us don't have the time for all that shopping. Our DecorDesigners are skilled listeners, who will carefully work to craft a distinctive look that feels right for you. Using our proprietary Styleprint Design System, you will see your room's design potential unfold before your eyes."
