After my last move where I lived with two roommates, I didn't get to spend time decorating or purchasing new pieces. The other girls each had living room furniture, pictures, coffee tables, etc. I just brought a dining room table and my bedroom furniture.
Since I moved with so little this time around, I was able to find my own style which, thanks to my previous roommates, I think I might actually have a little bit of now?
Knowing that I wanted my space to be a place to entertain, I purchased this bar cart from overstock.com and loved it the minute I set it up. It's incredibly sturdy and fits all my bar accessories. Now if someone can just style this cart for me, that would be peachy.
Since I have a dining room, albeit a tad smaller than my last one, I swapped out the old dining room table for a friendlier size table that was up at our cabin. It fits perfectly in my little dining room.
My kitchen is a tad awkward since the fridge is just hanging out on a wall on its own which left for some weird blank wall space. I found this little magnetic chalkboard at Marshall's. My chalk skills need work, but it's been a great addition to an empty white wall.
The living room is one of my favorite places to hang out in for many reasons. The first, and the selling point for me, was all the windows! I've lived in apartments that only had a total of three windows! The natural light makes me so happy and depending on the day I can get a pretty nice sunset view from my couch.
The couch was my big splurge and I'm glad I upped my price point. It's been so comfortable and a perfect place to start my GoT binging. The ottoman/chaise is reversible which I really like and will allow me to change up the space as I please.
One of my favorite pieces is my rug! I purchased it off of Wayfair.com and I feel like it really fits my space and works with the pieces that I'm bringing into the room.
My second favorite place to relax is obviously the bedroom. It's small, so it doesn't allow space for distractions, just sleeping and getting dressed. It helps me fall asleep quickly at night, and gets me moving early in the morning since there are no other temptations. If there was a tv in my room, you can bet that come Sunday I would never get out of bed except to retrieve my delivery food.

There you have it! I'm still looking to add some plants, lamps and maybe a bookshelf, but all-in-all she's put together just the way I like. And for the first time in all the times that I've lived alone, I actually look forward to going home and spending time in my home.
It makes me happy☺
