I'd love to join you guys! Currently I hate my apartment. I live in a slum, but I'm stuck here until we can afford better so I've been trying to make it look nice on the inside so I don't go insane.

Right now I'm focusing on my living room/dining room. I have a color palette and design theme. I want to do something kinda lounge-y, artsy. Like Frank Sinatra and a Beatnik would both think I have a rad apartment.

To-Do List
-Replace two large lumpy sofa pillows with large throw pillows. Sorta like this style, but different colors

-paint shelf black with some sort of design on the sides
-do lots of art for the place, including a painting of "The Midnight Lounge", which is the central theme of my design
-find a cheap frame for the print of Starry Night I have, hopefully from a thrift store
-Get a lamp or light that looks cool, and will give off soft light for lounging.
-Get a rug for the living room. Hopefully zebra! (I'm OBSESSED with Zebra. It's almost sad how much Zebra I have in my wardrobe.)
-possibly create some sort of non-traditional chandelier
-Get rid of the old coffee table, and move it's stuff into the ottoman.
-Slip cover the couch?
-hang up the cork board I painted
-Someday get a retro blue neon sign

I have some photo to post of what I've done so far, I'll post those later.

UPDATE: Before and in-progress photos
BEFORE (scary, messy)


Still Messy, but the floor plan is way better. It's hard to tell because my place is still looking kinda cruddy/messy, but the new layout makes the space seem bigger, yet less empty. If that makes sense.

If you guys have any ideas, let me know.

There is a a weird angled wall behind the TV I'm not sure what do with. Maybe leave it free of art, since they'd be on a weird angle and we'd be looking at the TV any how. What do you guys think?

this sounds great! I've been trying to be frugal lately. I'm saving up for a trip to Vegas in May and the more I save around the house, the more fun we can have on our trip. My focus lately is cheaper food, and decorating our apartment without spending gobs of money, and making cheap yummy foods at home.

I got my stuff from SunnyTuesday! I LOVE IT ALL!!!


I love the mushroom card! and I opened up the cards right after this picture lol.


Adorable! I love black white and red together!
This is where I'll journal about how perverted I feel for like Jacob Black... HE DOES NOT LOOK 17!!!

I LOVE THESE!!! I love the colors and I'm a big fan of fingerless gloves. Sacramento gets cold, but not cold enough to have to deal with not being able to use my hands!


sorry, it took so long to post pictures!
