  • 3, 2, 1, go!

  • Hello world, where I'm from... Oh wait, no!

  • Hello world, this is what living rooms around the world are like

  • Alright Aiko, what's the first video?

  • First is Debora in Italy

  • And she likes playing with lightsabers

  • Well, not in the video

  • Hi, I'm Debora, and this is what an Italian living room is like

  • I think my living room has got a quiet Italian look because it has lots of wood

  • furniture and it's very simple and rustic

  • Lots of my living room furniture has been made by my father

  • like this structure right here

  • In our living room, we have quite a few pictures on the walls

  • There are also some African frogs

  • Their names are Armando, Giangianni, and Pigrizia

  • In winter we save money with this fireplace

  • and I think it's very useful for creating the atmosphere too

  • These are from Puglia and they are typical, local houses called Trulli

  • And last, but not least, this is a prize, a trophy

  • that I won last weekend in a natural lightsaber tournament

  • because I do a very uncommon sport called lightsaber combat

  • and we actually fight with a replication of lightsabers

  • So what's the next video?

  • Mae in Cambridge, in England

  • And what's your favourite part?

  • I love the tea part

  • Yep, I think this one's the cutest submission

  • Hello world, my name is Mae

  • Where I'm from in Cambridge, England this is what a living rooms is like

  • When visitors come, we bring them straight in there

  • Let's have a look

  • This, is a sofa

  • Most people in England have one... or maybe more

  • It's where we relax, watch films, and watch TV

  • When we have guests, we sit and drink tea

  • When we have lots of guests you could sit on this stool, like so

  • In England, we decorate with ornaments or photos

  • Mum didn't like ornaments so we mostly decorate with photos

  • This one is my favourite one because it reminds me of a holiday that I went with my Dad

  • In our house, we have curtains to cover the windows

  • but in some homes, they have blinds

  • There's only one light per room in England

  • And we are really lucky because we have French doors that open out into our garden

  • so we can play on sunny days outside

  • This is our dining table. This is where we eat, draw, and do our homework

  • Some people have a separate dining room, but mum turned ours into a study

  • We have three pets. Two hamsters that we keep down here called Hermione and Mary

  • and we also have a budgie called Sayuri

  • We let her out whenever we're in

  • Thank you for watching our video!

  • And the next video

  • Krystan and Thomas in Salt Lake City in the United States

  • Yep, and they really like their carpets and rugs

  • Hello, my name is Krystan

  • And my name is Thomas

  • And we are currently living in Draper, Utah, which is just outside of Salt Lake City

  • This one is an open floor plan concept, which means our living room is built

  • as the centre of our apartment

  • Then you have your kitchen, your bedroom, and your bathroom attached to it

  • Another thing that might be different than the apartments back by you guys

  • is that we have carpeted floors

  • And not only do we have carpeted floors

  • but we choose to use a rug to cover over our higher traffic areas

  • We also have a ceiling fan, which not all apartments have them

  • We didn't have them in our old apartments

  • We actually had to use lamps to help illuminate the whole room,

  • like the one in the corner behind the TV

  • And the next video

  • Avril in Marseille, France

  • Avril! It's April

  • Oh!

  • Yeah, and she's super vintage, she likes her old stuff

  • Yep

  • Hi, my name is Avril

  • I live in Marseille, in the south of France

  • and this is what my living room look like

  • My living room has no separation between living, dining, and working room

  • As a student I have a pretty big living room and I'm really happy about it

  • The principle element of a French living room is the couch

  • No couch, no living room

  • As you can see, I really like Star Wars and Pokemon

  • In France, we also like book shelves, and as you can see, I love books and comics

  • Another thing about old French apartments is that we have really, high ceilings

  • Really high!

  • We saw lots of videos around the world and some things stuck out to us

  • and one of them was...

  • Fireplaces!

  • And what about the fireplaces?

  • Well, almost every house, there are fireplaces

  • and they're like brick, or like cement, or lots of, like you know on top of TVs

  • You have a TV on top of it

  • Yeah, people like putting stuff on top of it

  • Greek houses that are for sale often have a fireplace

  • So big, open room like this have usually a fireplace

  • I use mine as a shelf

  • Here's some shelves so you put everything

  • So people didn't seem like they used their fireplaces that much

  • But they like to use it in winter

  • I also love the fact that we have a fireplace

  • So, when the winter comes, we can snuggle around the fireplace

  • And there's a fireplace

  • Do we ever use that thing?

  • Only at Christmas time

  • Now, we did get one person who actually uses the fireplace to heat their home though

  • Finally, our wood stove is in the corner, connected to the chimney

  • Next, we want to talk about carpets

  • In America, it seems like it's popular

  • Hello Aiko and Shin, where we're from this is our living room in Western New York

  • In the other countries we saw, we didn't see any carpets in living rooms

  • But they had carpets

  • They had carpets? What kind of carpets?

  • Well, little carpets

  • Oh, rugs, yeah, you're right.

  • So they had rugs over top of like laminate or tile...

  • In the living room area you mostly always can find a carpet, like a pretty huge carpet

  • Our floor is mostly tile, just like the rest of our house

  • We noticed that some people like putting desks in their living rooms

  • And they like putting their computers on it

  • Work, work, work! Or play. Minecraft?

  • Something that's pretty different, I guess, in my house

  • is that we got a kind of office in the living room

  • And in that corner I have the computer

  • So this is my work place

  • We saw lots of rooms with cute pets in them

  • So this is what our living room in Draper, Utah looks like

  • That is a ?

  • And who's that little thing on the pink thing?

  • Grumpy

  • Watching all the videos, I started to realize that it's kind of hard to pin down

  • the concept of a living room

  • Some people used it to entertain guests, some people used it for eating,

  • some people used it to study even

  • and some houses even have separate rooms for each one of these functions

  • I would say that my living room is pretty big, pretty open,

  • because there's no separation between the kitchen area and the living room area

  • This living room is mostly used for formal things, such as parties

  • like in Christmas and New Years

  • Any other day, we're probably using this living room

  • because it has the TV, the Wii, and the DVD

  • As you can see this is the dining room and over here, this is the living room

  • In most living rooms, they have sofas, and TVs, and a coffee table

  • It is usual to have couches and a centre table

  • Couches are always placed around a coffee table and they usually face a television

  • There is a TV

  • Another principle element of living rooms in France is the TV

  • Mine is actually older than me, but it still works

  • I like the style of the Lithuanians. They were always ready for guests

  • Mostly, table is always set, because you always can have unexpected guests

  • Bye, bye, bye, bye, bye

  • Thank you for watching our video!

  • What are living rooms like where you're from?

  • Hey Aiko, she stole your line!

  • Oh that's fine, she was cute

  • Yeah, she was. What do we want to see in the next video?

  • We want to see what are kitchens like around the world

  • Yeah, so please let us know what a kitchen is like where you're from

  • and we'd love to see some countries we haven't seen before, or some places, like

  • I want to see Hawaii

  • Hawaii? Okay, I want to see, maybe some countries in Africa, or India,

  • or some other places in Asia

  • To submit your video, follow the link in the description or the info icon

  • And, thank you for making all these videos, and we love it,

  • and sorry we couldn't put all the videos, but we're going to watch it all,

  • and then, yep, we loved it

  • Okay, thanks for watching!

  • See you next time, bye!

  • Did you say, "See you next time?" Kind of, "See you next time, bye"

  • Bye

  • Bye

  • I just touched it and it went bebebebe

  • You broke the bananas!

  • Well, I just went like this, I went like this, "ping, bebebebe"
