Small Apartment Ideas

So many things have been happening lately and I can't wait to share them all with you.
One is that my boyfriend and I have leased our own apartment together!
We are so excited to move in and decorate - only a little over a month left to wait!
It is a small apartment, and this is my first time having to compromise on design, which is interesting and fun.
Here are some of my favourite small apartment ideas that I have been looking at for our new place!

Living Room:

For the living room we are trying to keep it light and a mix with mostly chic, but a few rustic pieces. We found a coffee table we love, as well we have a chaise lounge sofa from Ikea, that we are buying a cover for - still trying to pick the colour!

Behind the sofa in the living room, is going to be a wall with a long desk, for two. 
Right now, I am thinking we will buy a long Ikea desk, and put a similar draw unit in the middle.

The Kitchen:

Currently the kitchen is white and plain, and not that nice! We are hoping to do some cheap DIY's and upgrades to make this kitchen look amazing. Here are some pictures which are currently our inspiration.

The Bedroom:

This idea is still a work in progress, but I saw a picture we both loved in Elements of Style by Erin Gates. It has light colours, whites, silvers, and blues (dark and light). We are probably going to do something similar, but this may change in the future. Here are a few other ideas we love.
The idea is similar to the pictures below, but not with that dark of a wall colour, either leave it white or paint it a pale pale blue.

The Bathroom:

The bathroom has absolutely no storage whatsoever! I think shelving similar to this, or even a stand alone unit would be great. Also, there is a lot of gross tile, so there will definitely be some DIY's on how to paint tile coming your way this spring!
