Hello AT,

My name is Jen. I will be entering my senior year at Ohio University as a journalism student in the fall. I recently signed a lease for next year with my boyfriend (who will be a International Relations graduate student) for an apartment (see attached document for apt layout specs)...

It is a fairly small space and I am curious to see what advice I could receive on what key pieces I would need to hunt down to put in the space and what would be the best way to arrange the space to maximize its utility. Any suggestions/creative ideas are appreciated!

Being college students we are on a budget but don't want to sacrifice style too much.

Thanks! -Jen E.

Dear Jen,

You've got plenty of room! Pardon our shaky photoshop drawing, but we've sketched in what seems to us a good first pass for the space. Assuming you'll do much of your work in the library, you can have a nice living room and a small dining area if your furniture isn't too big.

Take a look at this and if you write in more specific questions, perhaps we'll be able to answer them in more detail.

Best, Maxwell
