Q: Help Me. Please. I am moving into my first apartment by myself in just a few weeks. For the past 6 years, I have shared places with sisters and friends and it was always a mishmash of both of our stuff…

I am renting a newly renovated apartment - new floors, new paint, cabinets, appliances, everything(!) and don't want my lack of decorating skills to keep this place from shining. One of MANY questions I have is this:

I have an amazing dark purple couch that I plan to use in my family room and I just built from repurposed wood pallets a coffee table I put on casters that I am staining (turned out awesome!). What color combo would you suggest for curtains and a rug? I'm at a total loss here. My first go to would be gray but my bedroom already has that color palette. As for my personal style - I don't really have one! I am a very laid back, jeans and flannel kind of girl. It's amazing at what a hard time I am having with this decorating nonsense!
