Hi!
This can be a great space!
Things to consider:
- The room is too "heavy in visual weight" meaning there is too much furniture and more to be in scale with the rooms scale. Maybe you can move the smaller pieces (the two cabinets next to your main one under the tv, maybe do without side tables and instead do a couple of floor standing lamps)
- changing the mood of the room to lighter by increasing the light in the room by painting the wall a lighter color and maybe do roman shades for those windows letting in light.
- Finding a place for everything you use in the room. A tray on the coffee table can collect magazines for example, things like that
- Some plants would be nice, maybe a bigger one to lead the eye to the high ceiling.
Good luck!

I like this! especially the summery bedroom colors! One thing though, not wanting to be a douch, the rug under the table seem too small. Think I would do a bigger round one, but thats just my opinion!

Just like to add I learned a trick a few years ago; always keep a ready to go bag of what you need by the entry meaning you can just skip out the door on a whim! I keep mine with a swimsuit and towel, and then just toss in whatever else and go!


Exploration Essentials: What You Should Always Have When Adventuring & Exploring Apartment Therapy's Guide to the Perfect Summer

I am on the other side of this, having lived the last years in a place with no internet and no cellphone, I like it. But I think that time in the woods made me more conscious of my usage and I think we all have to be analyzing why we do things and also unplug for balance. I experienced what technology do for you mind in a subconscious way when surrounded by it on a trip last summer. My heart was racing and I could not think, so I stopped and realized I had the TV on, the radio on and I was browsing the internet. All this completely overstimulated me and made me feel sick. I think you get used to this overstimulation and we all need to be conscious of that because it could lead to damage in our bodies.


Tell Us: How Often Do You \"Unplug\" at Home?

I'm with Tangerinegal about the placement of furniture. A long narrow console for the tv on the big wall would work nicely. The rug need to come out from underneath the sofa and leave about a foot of floorspace. You can work in the warm colors of the rug in other places in room. Adding decor with some height and colors on the console would be nice and add interest. That black chair and ottoman should go to another room, it differs too much in height in comparison to the sofa. Look for two chairs with similar height and structure as sofa. Colors could be different though and be picked up in sofa with help of cushions. For the windows I would do wooden blinds with linen curtains. And add a dimmer to that ceiling fan and get rid if those mismatching lamps!
Word on advise regarding working with your boyfriend on this. I have a husband that lets me "do anything" and "I dont care" he says. But I know he does, he just does not know much about decorating, so I working out what he liked or disliked by showing him photos of rooms, asking him what he liked or disliked. Turned out he had many opinons, small things that mattered to him much! So if you do this, you will ensure he feels part of the makeover. Have fun!

I've thought about putting a rail with hooks for cups under a RIBBA photo ledge. Would make a nice coffee station addition with syrups and so on on the ledge.

ugly houses with no personality. My parents in-law lives like this. I can never find their house, they all look the same to me (on the outside) Very depressing and beige. So beige that that was the only color my mom in law could think about when wanting to surprise us with a paint job in our house. Gosh, I felt like I lived in a box...

I also tried to get cover by medicaid (in utah) but unless you have a kid they will not insure you. You normally hear from them within a couple of weeks so you should contact them again before something happens.

Ooch big couch! Tape together flat cardboard pieces so it gives you a feeling of the dimensions of it inside the room, then walk around it with all of you in there plus maybe some guests (have a layout party? haha) then you'll know where it wont obstruct ie best place for it. If decide to float it in the room, a big round rug could soften the look and make it more intentional. Good luck!!

If you like modern and want to just do something fun instead of going with period appropriate colors, look to a strong sky blue. Light green with a hint if blue on the shutters and then pops of colors on that porch :)


Paint Color To Coordinate with Stone on My Home's Exterior? Good Questions

I agree with RubyMae that sometimes it is better to at least speed things up when living in a rental. You just dont know when life changes in one way or another. Maybe its just like painting. Take your time doing prepwork (finding your style and what feeling your're after) then the place will come together fast and you'll be happy and can enjoy it! This is what I have done and 2 months in on my rental feels so much better than 2 years in my last place because I got a real plan on where I am heading with my projects :)

I agree! Cute post! Altough instead if sitting on my face to wake me up, my cat goes for the little more aggressive pat in the face with paw! Fun side note, we just moved from a cul-de sac in forest to a neighboorhood in town and I was worried about what might come from that, especially since he was born in the wild. Sure enough, found him sitting on top of telephone pole 40 feet up a couple of days later! My little wildcat...:)

I learned quickly after moving in with my boyfriend, that his way of living in the space had to inform the design to keep the space looking good! For example; round coffee table as he scoots the table around when putting feet on it (hey, is how he is comfortable) A square one just gets angled weirdly.. Open shelves in kitchen as he never shuts cupboards, a hamper in the bathroom so clothes does not end up on floor there. Life living with a dude eh? ;)

This is how I grew up. Did not know about money or "treats" except for on birthday and Christmas. I think it made me a better person, knowing that those things doesn't really matter. Also, made me able to live of of "nothing" as an adult. Thanks mom!

I gotta say why use plywood? I made a similar table with regular sturdy wood once, boards made for use as countertop or other. I was about $150 including hardware. This was in Sweden, could be they dont sell those big wooden boards here in US as they want you to go buy a table..?

Hi! Just wanted to shout out to you people in Seattle that are there because of the mountains, that you just HAVE TO go up to see Mt. Rainer and Mt. Baker from the west side. I just lived in Glacier which is the closest little village to Mt. Baker and felt the need to carry a camera every day! Milepost 34 has a secret pullout where you can see really big trees...don't tell anyone....;)
