Apartment Bedroom Inspiration

As many of you probably know from this post I'll be living in a new apartment once I head back to Greenville to start grad school in June. My previous apartments came furnished and at the time I didn't realize just how nice that was. So now, I am on the hunt for good, inexpensive furniture to use in my room while still making sure it all looks good together! I am using most of the bedding and decor that I've used in my past bedrooms (here and here) so it's really just the big stuff that I need. 

Since I am so drawn to blue and white and that will clearly make up most of the color scheme I am planning to stick to white furniture and a white headboard. Before I left school I was able to get a really cute campaign style desk off of Craig's List that I will be repainting a glossy white to use in my room. I knew I wanted a desk in my room if I was going to get work done and ever since starting to shop for furniture have been really drawn to the campaign style. Aside from desperately needing a bed and mattress my next go to piece will probably be a dresser. Although rooms in college are small they do typically come with a lot of storage. When moving into an empty room I quickly learned that the only "storage" I had was closet space. I really like this Ikea dresser and depending on the dimensions may even get it on my way back to school (otherwise I may take a little trip to Charlotte). I think adding some sort of silver hardware with a bit more personality would make it look so cute with the other pieces I've been toying with the idea of! I will definitely be keeping y'all updated throughout this process and will be sharing any great pieces I come across as I know many of you are also attempting to furnish new places whether for college or post-grad. 



I'd love to hear what you think and the names of any great places to shop for furniture on a budget that I may not have thought of!

  1. At Home is a super inexpensive place to look for furniture. Look up My Overlays if you are getting Ikea furniture! They are a really fun and pretty inexpensive way to customize basic pieces. I got them for one of my dressers from Ikea and it totally changed the look of the piece. Also, if you are going to the Ikea in Charlotte there is a place called Furniture Row right across from it (might be a chain too!) that has good but inexpensive furniture. I got my sectional couch from there any love it!
