Decorating Your Apartment

Hi AOM,For the first time, I'm doing away completely with roommates/apartment-mates and getting my own place. I found a studio that I really like (one main room, about 15x12) and then a separate kitchen (decent sized, all completely redone) and a bathroom. It also has a wardrobe-sized closet.Can you guys give me some input on what types of decoration stuff to do? I'm not trying to go full blown interior decorator (it's not as if I have enough room for that in a studio anyway) but I want to put…See More
