What I Love About My Home
This was my first apartment where I lived on my own, and I love the personal touches I can play with and enjoy. The blue wall is a color I picked out, the pictures and letters on the door are from family and friends, and one of my posters was designed by my college roommate. It reminds me of people I love, and it feels great to have put it all together.
Biggest Challenge in Furnishing My Home
I live in a studio and very much wanted distinct areas of living and sleeping so that if someone came over, they wouldn't feel like they were having dinner in my bedroom. Using screens that I painted, I was able to create the illusion of separate rooms. I think it makes the space feel so much bigger and gives my sleeping area a feeling of privacy, which can be hard to do in a small open space.
