I lived very close to a small pub where my friends and I used to hang out. We would meet there after work for a drink, have dinner, and then go back to someone’s apartment to play games, relax, unwind, and just hang out.
My apartment, which was closest of all of my friends, was never the preferred hang out spot. I couldn’t ever figure out why because it was also the largest place. Eventually my friends broke down and told me it was because my furniture wasn’t quite welcoming. After I went home that night I saw what they meant. It wouldn’t hurt to have a coffee table set that wasn’t propped up on milk crates and a couch that didn’t look like it had been through the mill.
I saved up some money and decided that I wanted to make my apartment the coolest spot to be. I bought an Ashley furniture sofa, two chairs, and got rid of the milk crates.
I decorate it in a style that was me but a little more grown up and classy. Rearranging, buying new furniture, and getting accessories like rugs and lamps for my home that matched made the difference. Now my apartment is the place to be!
