Small apartment. Must completely furnish brand new. Help!
January 17, 2013 in Design Dilemma
I am moving into a 1 bedroom apartment and all I own is a mattress and bed frame and a black and zebra print chair. My biggest concern with this floor plan is the tiny bathroom. I'm a Girly girl with lots of make-up and hair stuff to spread out. How do I fit a queen size bed, vanity, and dressers in this bedroom? I would love some design ideas as well. I love hot pink and purple, and all things shiny. How do I combine those to make the room look somewhat sophisticated rather than teenage dreamish?

I also need ideas on how to set up the living room and dining area. I recently received a Thomas Kinkade painting of The Little Mermaid. I wanted to use that as inspiration to perhaps do a beachy theme in the living room. I like to keep things light and bright. Any space saving/storage tips would be greatly appreciated.

The answer to all your problems is storage, either built in or modular. Ikea is a great source of inspiration for storage, I've put together some ideas in the following idea book. The colours in your picture are lovely and a light, bright, beachy theme sounds great. I also love the teal colour which you could pick out as a feature wall, keep the look simple and follow it through each room to make the space feel bigger. This colour would go perfectly with your zebra print chair. Teal also goes beautifully with hot pink. To keep the look sophisticated the pink/purple/shiny should be kept as accents and not the main theme. Hope that helps!

Here is an example of a eclectic styled room and perhaps some floating shelves for the bathroom.
