For those of you that have had roommates, you know how difficult it is to design a space that speaks to both of your personalities without taking away from either. Trelawny Davis and Jackie Sosa were able to do that on a budget, and gave out these helpful hints. They added comfortable pieces to their living room, where they host many of their guests, and made sure everyone had places to sit. They also used bar stools along their countertop in the dining room, and comfy plush chairs at the table to make it comfortable and not stuffy for guests.
- Deciding to live together and signing a lease can be done quite quickly, but merging two interior design philosophies can take time.
- When room mates have different design interior design tastes its important to take time to find a way to merge the two styles rather than letting them clash.
- Take your overall color scheme, how you live, and build your room around your lifestyle rather than slavishly replicating what you see online or on pinterest.
