The word 'pretty' can be used in a multitude of ways. Not only can it be used as a descriptive term for something you've visually seen, it can also be used to describe a felt (mentally or emotionally) status, so to speak, of something or someone. While words like, for example, pretty, ugly, beautiful and hideous are all used at the opinion and discretion of the user, 'pretty' is often times a more readily used and agreed upon term to describe something or someone that is above average aesthetically. Be it an outfit, hairdo, painting, a persons face or a home, if its appearance is above average (but not considered to be to the level of gorgeous or beautiful) in its attractiveness, it could be considered 'pretty'.

As a feeling, it's generally used to proclaim an above - average opinion on something. It can, however, sometimes be used to describe something as only so-so. As you can tell, "pretty" has many uses. These are only a few definitions.
"Tiffany has such pretty hair - I love its color!"

"Did you watch that new comedy show on tv last night? It was pretty funny!"
