The drab cream and white colors of apartments can become really boring. However, it's not always worth it to make a lot of changes to an apt. that you won't be living in for long. Even though we'll only be in this apartment for a max of three years, it is officially our first home together as a married couple. We want to make it feel like our home as much as possible so we decided that we are going to paint a few big walls to make an impact, one in the dining area and one in our bedroom. We started with the dining area and chose a fun apple green color that would brighten up the living area. Plus the green looks great with the cobalt blue color that I use in the kitchen.
We definitely need to add something to this big wall which I'll have to start shopping for. So far, we just have our wine rack on the wall which was a great wedding gift. Unfortunately, the great bottles of wine we received for a wedding gift are back in Iowa, so I guess I'll just have to go buy some more! I'll update this once we add something fun to our wall. Next up is the bedroom. We need to buy our bedding first, but we are thinking a light blue for that room. Hopefully I can show you that final product in a few weeks!
Excuse the ugly light over our table. : )
