When I moved into my first apartment, I had to make do with older pieces that I liberated from the attics and basements of loved ones. After saving some money, I decided to fix up my bedroom first. That meant settling on a design for the room. A lot of thought went into my selections. I needed to think about the colors for the furniture, the style, and even the type of mattress I wanted for the bed. After choosing wall color, I moved on to selecting a bedding set with matching window treatments. My success with my bedroom motivated me to tackle each room in the apartment in turn. If you need to decorate your home one room at a time, let me provide some tips. I'll make suggestions buying furniture that is to scale and choosing your colors. In no time, each room will look great.
