So this picture was taken on move-in day. I was seriously handed the keys to a big, square, empty room. The apartment is considered half basement, so the plugs are at an awkward height as well as the AC unit.
So after moving everything into the middle of the room, I started visualizing the space. The craziest thing about my move in story is that I signed my lease without ever seeing the studio apartment because I had already returned to Michigan for the summer. Based on emails from the landlord and the plans available online I drew up mock positions for furniture and living areas. Seen here:
Lucky for me, everything actually fit right into place where I wanted it. I was able to divide the room up so it gave the feeling of being separated, however, made it feel larger than it really is.
