Apartment Style: My Living Room and Kitchen

I love to decorate, and love seeing how everyone fixes up their "first" homes or apartments.  I've been meaning to do a post on my apartment, but I just now got around to taking pics to put on here!

Here's the lovely abode Tressa and I call home...

I'm a very lucky (probably slightly spoiled) girl.  All the furniture was a gift from my parents for graduation last year.  I'm slightly obsessed with my couch and chair.  I love, love the color and can't wait to put them in a room thats not white. haha.



Amazingly the zebra ottoman has not had anything spilled on it yet *knock on wood*.  My roommate and I are pretty OCD about it.  I love the large tray.  It holds all our magazines that we are waiting to read, plus drinks, snacks, and anything else.



I'm also obsessed with my entertainment center.  It was also a gift from my parents.  We had purchased the center piece a couple of years ago with the intention of adding pieces to it.  Well, they retired the style before I could purchase the other pieces and I was so sad.  One day, I happened to be walking through Furniture Row and low and behold they had my other matching pieces.  I called my parents right then and they ordered them for my birthday!  I love the way the finished product looks!



My mom helped me decorate the top and bookcases.  She's amazing at decorating!


Entertainment Center:  Furniture Row
Decorations:  Various places such as Arty Crafty, TJ Max, Riffraff etc.
On to the kitchen...


My favorite thing about our kitchen is the marble looking counter tops and our raised bar.  It's the perfect place to sit and chat or do homework, while the other is in the kitchen.  Right now our counter tops are a little crowded due to my roommate and I's disagreement over the best coffee maker, so we just have two out.



My favorite candy jars from The Container Store house a variety of granola bars and special K bars.  Perfect for grabbing on the way out the door.


Top of fridge.  We like wine here.  The sign came from nowhere else but Fayetteville's very own Riffraff.  The BEST home decor store, if you haven't been there click on the link and go there now!  They ship to anywhere and have the best prices!! The wine glasses also came from there, but as I am typing this Tressa just dropped the white/red wine glass.  My mom got me that cute wine holder from Kirklands a while back.


More wine, a little Don Perignon, and cute sign from Riffraff.



My mom helped me decorate the top of my cabinets.  Most of the decor came from Arty Crafty, but the plates I found at a little antique store last summer.



Part of our entry hallway.  A friend helped me paint the canvas several years ago, it's my favorite verse from the Bible.

Now you know where I spend the majority of my time!
