What I Love About My Home

I love that our place is always well lit. It is a small, colorful and bright place, which makes us happy and cheerful always.

Biggest Challenge in Furnishing My Home

The challenges to begin with was the budget, both my husband and i were just out of school when we rented this apartment. We have a lot of ikea furniture, but all is not necessary assembled the way it should be. We tried to personalize it depending on the space that we needed to create. The low console like thing in the study/guest bedroom are a study table, a coffee table and a t.v unit from ikea all combined to form a single unit. The other main challenge was to accommodate a study/guest bedroom in our one bedroom apartment.

Favoriting and voting have ended.

Love the art and the cultural details you've incorporated.

the photos don't quite show the guest room concept, but the use of color and pattern/accessories keep it warm and from looking too ikeay.

The photos don't show your home and your space very well...seems to be just glimpses of your beautiful home. Would like to see more including how you arranged for your guest bedroom/study.

Agree with the other posters about the pictures not really giving a clear idea of everything, but I like it. It's "designed" but looks totally effortless. I like that it looks like some actually lives here.

I also agree, these photos do not tell me how it is organized and structured your apartment.

"mello1" is rude. i cant stand when people have to be so criticizing. style and taste are so objective; why even be mean 'mello1'? i love the bedroom and the wall photos and think the home seems quite inviting. i wish i could tell more of what im looking at in photo 4.

I would also agree about the photos, attention seems to be on the furniture, not the space. I would imagine more votes if the apartment itself was more visible as it looks like a lovely place!
