Home Decor // My New Room

About a week ago, I moved into my first apartment with four other girls. It's a pretty small place but our kitchen is adorable and we have a fireplace in the living room. The only problem is that we live in the basement of the building so the lighting isn't ideal. Also, since we live near the campus of the university, there are a lot of beer cans laying around outside that lead to the homeless having conversations outside my window at 3 am as they gather the cans. My room is pretty much all Ikea. My favorite area is my baby desk with my makeup and I also have a shelf with cute boxes that is not pictured because my photography skills were not functioning today. I was worried that my bed wouldn't fit in the room but everything worked out thanks to my dad. If you have any questions where something is from [although the answer is probably Ikea...] let me know!

  14. Simple, compact and stylish. Those were the only things that came to mind. With that much space in your room, you can move around freely. Being minimalist may seem modern, but having too much for a space could get you feeling all alone. Having furniture properly placed around your room also helps in how it looks. Thanks for sharing, Masha!
