How to Make the Most Out of Your Boston Studio Apartment

After the inevitable stress of moving in, it's about time that you make your space feel like home.  Here are four tips to make the most out of your space, while becoming a part of your new Boston neighborhood.

Keep it Simple

There's a reason that the Real Simple Magazine exists.  Make sure to maintain a simplistic, classic design and home décor.  The clash between your grandmothers old desk with your new Ikea bookshelf will create a disconnect in your design.  Sticking to a cohesive color palette will bring together the vital pieces in your new place.

Think Vertically

Bookshelves, cabinets, and high ceilings are your friends. When furnishing the new digs, be sure to look for tall storage options that don't take up a lot of floor space. That leaves more room for friends to get together at your place to watch the Sox Game.

Use Multipurpose Furniture

Say hello to the storage ottoman!  It's the perfect way to create more secretive storage space.  And who doesn't love to relax and put up their feet once and a while?

Oversized Mirrors in Small Spaces

This optical illusion will work to make your studio appear more expansive.  Think outside the box, ditch the usual rectangle, and try some different shapes.  Unique designed mirrors are functional, while also serving as a work of art!
