Q: I moved this year to my first apartment with my boyfriend, and the place is really small but we love it. It is one bedroom, one bathroom, a living/dining room, and a small kitchen. The problem is that I'm having trouble trying to style the whole thing, and I'd like to try other layouts but I can't think of a different arrangement. I attached a graphic of how it is right now. I need to fit the dining table and a couch, and we are also always inviting people to have a drink, so it needs to be comfortable and have enough seating for everybody. Can you please help me? Thanks!
