Q: Hey, wise Apartment Therapy community! My husband is currently in a doctorate program, and we just moved into one of the graduate housing apartments next to campus. The design of the space is predictably tricky.
The walls are a yellow/beige (like khaki pants), and the floors are a darker greige tile. We can't paint or make holes in the walls. I'd usually bend that rule, but we're also the property managers, so we have to set a good example. We'll be here for the next several years, so I want it to be livable/well designed. The photo shows the living room looking into the dining area of the kitchen.
