Project Title
Lyn's Modern Living Room & Bedroom Design
Project Description
I am moving into my new apartment (1 bedroom apartment), and I need help with a) arranging the furniture that I bought b) decorating the house to fit my lifestyle and needs (purchase + arranging) without extensive alterations (rented apartment, would prefer not to cause permanent changes or paint the walls, etc) and c) finding some extra furniture to complete the look of the house (e.g. vanity table, full length mirror, lighting: no ceiling lights. only floor lamps and desk lamps are allowed). Since I have the major furniture already purchased (bed, dining table, desk, bookshelves, dining chairs, nightstand, coffee table, sofa) I am looking to spend maximum $2000 on extra items for decor, minor furnishing.
Location
New York City, NY, United States
What's your favorite decor style?
Modern
What are some of the interior design brands or stores that you like to shop at?
I was looking at CB2, Pottery Barn, Ikea (mostly due to a price point), Fab.com, etc.
What are your favorite colors for walls?
White,
I Would Prefer Not To Pain The Walls, As It Is A Rented Apartment
What are your favorite colors for furniture and accents?
Sky Blue,
Pastel-colored,
Light Gray,
Black/white
Photos of your room
Items you want to keep
Details
Room Label
My Bedroom
I want this room to feel more masculine/feminine/neutral
Neutral
What type of sunlight does this room receive?
Mid-day light
What pieces of existing furniture, lighting, art or accessories do you want to keep in the design?
I have the bed and drawers to function as a light stand. I also purchased a bunch of lighting options but again, I don't know whether to put these in the bedroom or the living room.
Are you open to changing your wall colors?
No
Are you open to changing your floor covering?
No
Attach a floor plan
Additional comments to designers
Again, photos of the "furniture we want to keep" are internet photos of what we have purchased. Lightings: not so fixated on putting them in the bedroom. Just included photos of those for your reference (I don't mind them being placed in the livingroom or the bedroom). Also, the floor lamp (long one): I have two of those. (see below for dimensions and websites that you can go to for more info/photo)

Bedroom: I have no idea what kind of "theme" I want for the bedroom. I want it to be clean, well-organized, not so crowded, and soothing. I also want the bedroom to be bright.

Concern: I kind of believe feng shui of the bedroom so i would not want to put my head on the North side (I would prefer east which is the wall right next to the door) or west is an alternative option (wall facing the bedroom door). I want a vanity table for the bedroom (whether it is a vanity table or a desk-looking thing with a storage: open to whatever suggestion) and I want a full length mirror. Concern is that I don't want the mirror facing directly into the bedroom door (it's considered as bouncing the good luck off of the bedroom).

What pieces of existing furniture, lighting, art or accessories do you want to keep in the design?
I purchased sofa, dining table + dining table chairs, desk + desk chairs, bar stools near the kitchen, coffee table for this living room. I purchased a bunch of lighting options but not sure if I want to put those in the living room or the bedroom.

Additional comments to designers
Note:- the furniture has not arrived so I haven't arranged it yet. The photos uploaded on 'items you want to keep" sections are online photos of what we purchased that we hoped to put in the living room area. (see below for dimensions and website addresses where you can get more info/see pictures)

I want the dining area of the living room and the sofa area for the living room to be harmonious (I am concerned because dining table, dining chairs, desk, and desk chair is all black when I don't want the living room to be too dark-looking). In fact, I want the living room to be very bright (I don't like dim yellow lights) so I would need recommendations on bright standing lamps that do not hurt my eyes. I also want the place not to look too crowded. Very clean, well-organized feel is wanted. I want the living room area to look spacious, easy to move around, and easy to maintain (cleaning-wise). But we are newly weds, so not so boring/dry either.

White and off-white colors are often a favorite for walls because they are light, neutral, and match most color schemes.

Again in this room we used a lot of the sky blue which you love as an accent!

Living Room:
For your main color, we chose keep your existing white as it offers a fresh, clean, feel to the space.

White and off-white colors are often a favorite for walls because they are light, neutral, and match most color schemes. They are known to make rooms feel more airy and spacious.

For your main accent color, we chose to use blue because you love it and it is calming, relaxing, and serene. It is reminiscent of blue skies and also works well in bedrooms as it can help turn your space into a soothing sanctuary.
