Living in a small area means you have to be very thoughtful on what you’re going to decorate with. Most of the time furniture is a focal point in a room but when that furniture has to be smaller it can blend in with the background. This is why you must play up your living area in other aspects! You must choose your focals and the overall feel of your apartment that you’re trying to achieve. For me that was easy, I want: Clean, black and white, highlighted gold, and very simple. With this easy color scheme I was able to find a ton of things I liked!

Coffee Table Essentials:
Coffee tables are made for so much more than just your morning wake up! There are so many different things that you can put there, including: candles, trays, coffee table books, and flowers! Coffee table books are my favorite and I have been collecting a few that will look great when I move in, but I don’t have many of the other essentials so below are a few things that caught my eye.

I am sure you have seen those beautiful gallery walls on tumblr! I am just as obsessed as you are, promise. I have planned to have a gallery wall every since I realized I was going to have a huge wall that has no interruptions like windows or doors. Be sure your gallery wall is a mixture of art work and personal pictures, that will make yours so much more special than the ones on tumblr. I plan on getting a picture of Diesel and I printed on a canvas to put on mine! Also fun items like mirrors and paintings add a fun touch!
