I've been in Cambridge for two full weeks now and I have finally gotten my apartment into working order. The last week has been very busy between orientation, class shopping, gross weather, socializing and getting a job so I apologize for not putting pictures up earlier. After four trips to IKEA, furniture assembling, rearranging and organization it's finally close to finished. I am still debating over some wall decals to add more color to the walls since I'm not allowed to paint them, but in terms of furniture I am finished. Here's how made 327 ft into six different "rooms".
I've really enjoyed having my own space and with my new job I'll be able to afford some special final touches to bring everything together perfectly. So, if in doubt, remember even in the smallest of spaces you can still have a lot of functionality with good planning and many trips to IKEA!
