First Apartment  
This is my two bedroom apartment in St. John's, Newfoundland. The complex was built in the 1950s so my spot is pretty old. I've lived here about a year and a half and after finally redoing my room a few months ago it finally feels like home. I'm a poor student and I decorated on a pretty much non-existent budget. Everything is freecycled, thrifted, handed down, or made. My style is kitsch and retro while still attempting to be streamline. My favorite style-era of all time is mid-century modern. I love antiquing. When I grow up I want a really really old house.

ALSO! My futon will be replaced with this in a few days, it belonged to a friend who just got a new leather couch, they're giving it to me for a case of beer :)

Great trade! I think that the couch is worth more then a case of beer. :)

I love the records on your wall. What did you use to hold them up?

I thought your kitchen was the best until I saw the bedroom. Now I can't decide. I like the spotlessly tidy and understated kitchen...but I love the rich yet not eye-daggery colors in the bedroom. And the living room is wonderful also. I wonder how you ever decide what room to sit in? LOL

Edited to add: The pristine white laptop right next to the old black rotary phone is simply amazing.

I love it! I'm still trying to work on a vibe for my apartment and you gave me a ton of ideas to try and modify to my taste. I like danish modern, and it seems hard to do without my apartment looking like ikea threw up all over it! (I want the more retro fifties danish modern, not premade ikea stuff!)
