designing the life around you
Where to begin
Developing a style
Start by finding individual pieces that you really enjoy. From there, build up a cohesive collection that is inspired by your favorite pieces.
With such a small space, it can help to take measurements of the room and large furniture. By doing so, you can sketch out the room and cut paper furniture that can be rearranged. You can use this same method on a larger scale, by cutting out cardboard to the actual size of the furniture and test different layouts inside your room before lifting heavy furniture.
Nothing like a fresh coat of paint
A fresh coat of paint can brighten your room and take care of otherwise dingy walls left by prior tenants. A coat of paint can feel like a fresh start, and there's nothing better than that!
While a staged room might look nice, everyone wants to live in a practical space that represents who they are. Always focus on making your space uniquely your own, because you're the one that has to live there!
Creating your own pieces is not only cost effective, but it can serve as the ultimate form of customization. Making your own artwork and refurbishing old furniture can help to elevate your room.
