Kristan’s Condo: Living Room

My Elegant Life

Kristan Roberts8 months ago I rented my first apartment in the condo development Gateway Village.  I was so excited to get a  taste of  the “big city” living (a major life dream) without having to leave Murfreesboro. Go figure? The luxe amenities and great bones made my new pad a dream come true!

I started decorating almost immediately and quickly figured out I needed to pace myself before I purchased. As a single girl, my budget was always on the brain; but having a great neutral couch and side chairs made this a bit easier.

I focused on accessories with different  fabrics and textures.  I did a lot just by mixing metal with my lime washed wood furnishings and faux fur pillows. I loved the contrast and when I added a pop of color with fresh flowers and candles it instantly gave the soft base personality.

As a first time renter, I did have a learning curve with the “no hang items on the wall”. However, I love canvas art, so I opted to lean some of my old pieces on the wall and it worked just fine.

I’m still on a mission for the perfect rug, but I’m very happy with my space to date. Many thanks to my friends at World Market and TJ Maxx for helping me creating my space on budget.
