Put comfort before show
Your children will always remember the cuddly throw that hung over the sofa, not the cost of the coffee table. Introduce as many tactile elements as possible, as these give a house warmth and positive sensory associations. Opt for natural fabrics wherever possible, the softer the better to create a sense of individuality and homeliness.
