Decorating your first apartment can seem daunting. Big budget items such as a mattress, bed frame, couch and dining table can add up quick. And that’s without adding decor that’ll bring your first very own space to life.
I thought I knew exactly what I wanted/needed when it came to apartment shopping in the few short weeks between graduation and my start date, denying my Mom’s suggestions to get a larger couch and a larger dresser (not sure what my infatuation with small furniture was).
Clearly I didn’t get it completely right the first time around, but I’d like to think I’ve figured out a thing or two in my first year of living on my own. So here are my (and my Mom’s – because lets face it, Moms are always right) suggestions for furnishing your first apartment.
