We love our apartment. So much so, that we've signed a lease for our 3rd year in the same unit. But since I didn't know we'd be there that long, I never painted the walls. That means we live in a sea of beige walls and carpets. I'm happy with the artwork and photos in our apartment, but I feel like a few things are missing.
Problem #1: Dining Set. My dining set is very basic and cheap, and it only seats four. I'd really like a set to seat six, but I can't justify buying one right now. I've been waiting to move to a house before investing.
Temporary Fix: I think painting the table and chairs some bright colors, like the photo below, might be a good temporary fix to perk things up.
Problem #2: Beige Carpets. And there's not much I can do about those.
Temporary Fix: Area rugs! I have a cheap one from IKEA in the dining room, but the grey color does nothing for the room with my cheap dining set. I think one in the dining room and one in the living room could really pop. One with blue and green (like my sofas) with a soft feel would be great in the living room.
