We are getting ready to move into our new apartment so we are trying to figure out furniture. The apartment is partially furnished so it has beds and some basics (some of which are funny looking.) But it is so different buying for an apartment that is temporary versus one that has pieces you will keep (we likely won’t be bringing any furniture back to the states with us.)
It is like I’m back in college and have to try to make everything look good on zero budget. (A challenge but also kind of fun.) I’m going to try some thrift stores later this week and we’ll also make an Ikea run for some basics. (All of which include the logistics of renting a car and driving all over crazy Paris.)
Anyone have any tips for making a space look good on a super small budget? Right now my priorities are: good lighting, comfy places to sit, and artwork. Since those three things make everything cozy and pretty.
Here are some pictures Paul took last week of our new neighborhood. Like Ali said. “Too bad that huge radio tower is so close to your apartment.”
