K, I am in the same boat!! I'm 25 and moving into my first apartment, which is only slightly larger than yours at 340 sq. feet. I too want my space to feel grown up but still reflect my personality. I have decided to go with neutral walls and add color with my furniture and accessories. I have also bought many pieces that pull double duty. For example, I bought a wonderful old chicken coop at a flea market. It makes a perfect coffee table with storage for extra throws and pillows. Don't waste valuable floor space on lamps. I use a wonderful hanging light that provide a lot of character and doesn't take up real estate. I have learned that if you buy what you love, your place will come together perfectly.

Very cute!! I love the bright colors in contrast with the white walls.Your layout is very similar to the apartment that I will be moving into in a couple of weeks. Plus, I was wanting to paint the walls white and now I know it won't look like a hopsital with the right colorful accents. Your place gives me so much hope for mine. Thanks!!!
