Listen to All


John: I can't wait to start decorating our new home, where do you want to start?

Mary: Let's start with the living room, that's the first thing people will see when they come in.

John: What colors are you thinking for the walls?

Mary: I was thinking of a light blue or a pale yellow, what do you think?

John: I like the idea of a light blue, it's a calming color.

Mary: We also need to choose a sofa, do you prefer leather or fabric?

John: I prefer leather, it's easier to clean and it looks more modern.

Mary: I was thinking of adding some wall art, what type of art do you like?

John: I prefer abstract art, but we should choose something that matches the room.

Mary: We also need to choose curtains and rugs, what kind of patterns do you like?

John: I like geometric patterns, what about you?

Mary: I was thinking of floral patterns for the curtains and a solid color for the rug.

John: That sounds good, we should also add some plants to the room.

Mary: I agree, plants add life to the room and they help purify the air.

John: We also need to think about lighting, do you prefer bright or soft lighting?

Mary: I prefer soft lighting, it creates a cozy and relaxing atmosphere.

John: I was thinking of adding some wall sconces, they provide a nice ambiance.

Mary: We should also add some decorative pillows to the sofa.

John: I agree, it makes the sofa more comfortable and inviting.

Mary: I can't wait to see how it all comes together!
