Maybe you guys have seen my new place on Instagram already. I'm just about finished moving in and unpacking. I realize I have A LOT of downsizing to do now that I'm living solo-lone-wolf-style in a studio apartment. Though I'm giving up space, I'm gaining so much style. My apartment has beautiful hardwood floors, exposed brick, and even though it is a studio, there is a separate kitchen and decent closet space. With this in mind, design is going to be crucial so that it feels like a home rather than a glorified dorm room. I'm excited to decorate to my own tastes. For the first time I truly have a place to call my home.
I'm thinking I'll have to find multi-functional pieces like a futon or small sofa bed that could double as a bed and seating. Giving up a real bed sounds like a pain, but I think it would just make the space so much more inviting. I can't imagine coming home to my single-room apartment with a gigantic bed as the focal point of the space. My desk is quite large and I'm planning on using it to moonlight as a dinner table as well. Perhaps I can swap out my laptop for a centerpiece and throw a pretty tablecloth over it.
