E Design /First Apartment

Hi everyone,  I was planning on doing a DIY project, but o well. I thought this would be just as fun.  This E Design  was done using what some consider to be a difficult color: yellow. Yellow can be a little tricky but done right, can give a room a nice pop. This space is a very small  apartment and a temporary residence, but needed to feel fresh and livable. I also wanted to add pieces that could transition to other spaces later.  The nice thing about the selections used here, is that with a change of pillows and other accessories, you can create a totally different look.

E Design Board:
 The sofa is slipcovered so it's easily changeable.  You could also add some great trim to the bottom of the sofa to give it an little extra punch. (I'm especially loving Mary McDonalds trim for Schumacher,Gorgeous!)  A great way to give apartments some personality is with paint. Here, the accent wall was painted with Restoration Hardware's Slate.  The cabinet was purchased in a grey washed finished and the chandelier  when it arrives will add even more interest to the space.

So Here's the space now:
I chose this cabinet because i thought it could serve  many purposes e.g. a place for books, dishes,  dressed with towels in a bathroom, used in a guest bedroom bedroom etc. Right now it holds the t.v., but can serve so many other purposes. I did give an option for the table e.g. acrylic, or wood but an ottoman, is being used now for the time being. All in all the yellow gives it pop, wouldn't you say without being too much.
