First Apartment Room Decor

I love interior designing and room decor so getting my first apartment was a pretty big deal! I was super excited to decorate to my heart’s content. Because I would be staying in the same place for two years, I could settle down and put a lot of effort in my bedroom. I wanted to create a comfortable and stylish space where I could come back to after a long day of class and just relax. I wanted to stray away from being too themed like my previous rooms (although I still loved those, I wanted it to be more sophisticated).


This time around, I bought my tapestry first and tried to find bedding and pieces to work around it. I went on as usual and browsed through thousands of tapestry until I found one that caught my attention. I narrowed it down to a palm tree + geometric tapestry. It was fashion-forward and very trendy- with tropical vibes + geometric shapes to tie it together. The hardest part was trying to find a comforter to go with the tapestry but I found everything I needed after a trip to Burlington’s. I opted for a deep plum comforter and beige pillow + bed sheets. I also bought a few decorative pillows to top on my bed! I love throw pillows because they add accents and characters to any bed!

For my desk, I hung a board with photos of my summer Europe trip on clothespins! I also decorated it with a metal marquee N and mason jar shot glasses. I used little metal tins to hold my makeup! I also had tree trunk coasters to contribute to the rustic appeal! I even added an empty bottle of cold-brew coffee so hint at my love for coffee and to cater to the aesthetics. It’s all about accents and little details!!!


I loved how my room came together and it was decorated nicely without being too cliche!

  1. Love what you did with your space! I also have my photos from Europe hanging in my room on clothing pins/string. I have noticed that I prefer my space to be minimal and clean but cozy at the same time.
