Have you just recently gotten your first apartment or condo? Are you suddenly faced with small but empty rooms staring at you and there is no place to sit or sleep? I can also bet that you have a small budget to work with. Don't worry - help is on the way! It is sometimes very hard to put it all together when you are just starting out.
Today - lets look at the living room space. This picture is from Ikea. They have a lot of great products, reasonably priced for you to look at. As long as you don't expect the furniture to last forever you can get some wonderful pieces there. I love the bright red sofa - especially if you have a small space - really brightens the room. The white coffee table is fun with it and bonus - easy to clean! You don't have to worry if someone spills on it.
Another inexpensive place to pick up accessories, like the pillows, is Target. They have some fun colors and styles at great prices.
Look at your place, make a list of what essential items you need, and check out pricing on them to help you develop a budget. You will be surprised how much fun you can have with all of this! Enjoy! j
