A Sophisticated Senior's Urban Apartment

Above: This is swathed in a luxurious-looking brown comforter and dressed up with pillows in a variety of mix-and-match colors and patterns. I love the pale green paired with pops of red. The ottoman at the foot of the bed can serve as both storage and a place to sit down and put on shoes. And the white-and-brown zebra printed rug makes a bold statement.

Above: I have to say that I'm a fan of the old, antique radiators... but I like this radiator cover. It works as a nice place for photos and the renter's i-pod dock.

Above: This is a very pretty nightstand. The books pick up on the table's crisp white. The word "Relax" reminds a student to take a deep breath and unwind after a chaotic day of classes. I love the lucite lamp base. And the flowers are a fresh, feminine accent.

The renter of this apartment did very well decorating according to her age. As college students, we're coming out of the bright, wild, highly-patterned stage of teen years and into the more chic, sophisticated world of adulthood. Her use of a neutral brown and white palette, subtly printed comforter, and minimal accessories gives the room a grown-up, classy feel. But use of prettily patterned pillows and the unexpected pop of zebra print lend the room some youthful personality. It's the perfect balance of young fun, chic style, and practicality. Oh, and I forgot to mention that she did this on a $200 budget!

This apartment and the photos of it are from ksch3487 at HGTV's Rate My Space.

Amore.

My favourite part is all the pillows- the more pillows, the better, in my opinion!

This is quite alarming. In the US, blacks make up only about 9% of the elderly population yet represent 21% of the elderly population living below the poverty line.
