The apartment has an open concept, so the kitchen and living room are connected in one large living space. My friend and I like doing our homework in the living room, so I decided to leave my homework station out to give you all a more honest idea of what our apartment looks like.
For the most part, we decorated with things we already had. I spent about $15 on a few pieces and the rest I found around the storage room at my parents' house. My mother, who I inherit my love for decorating from, couldn't help herself and probably contributed to about $30 with the Best Friends art piece and the kitchen rug. My friend/roommate also used stuff she had, and (of course) after I photographed everything brought in some new pieces she bought.
