Elizabeth, a grad student at the University of Delaware, sent me these photos of her first apartment. She just moved in, but has been busy decorating the space to feel like home. The airy, light-filled bedroom with white walls and trim is furnished with white furniture that lends itself to a crisp, clean feel in the space. She incorporated shades of turquoise, robin's egg blue, gray, and sunshiny yellow into her color scheme.
Elizabeth's sleek white desk is kept clutter-free and overlooks beautiful greenery just outside the large windows. The clean desktop promotes organization and lets the view take center stage.
Elizabeth personalized the room with artwork and prints that represented her and her personality: inspiring quotes, monograms of her initials, and favorite places to travel to.
She also hung up fabric circles for a fun splash of color and pattern, as well as favorite photographs and art.
Her bed, with its billowy gray comforter is a relaxing place to curl up at the end of a long day of studying.
Turquoise and white chevron print pillows add a punch of color and pattern to the bed.
Thanks for sharing your apartment, Elizabeth! Good luck with grad school!
