Maria sent us some photos and info on her close-to-DC apartment: My style is always evolving. I've gone from traditional, to shabby chic, to modern, and now to a mix of eclectic and flea market style. I started out 4 years ago, right out of college, with an old couch and a couple of bookcases… Since then, I've taken my time acquiring furniture at flea markets, yard sales, and at Ikea and other lower cost furniture stores. On a tight budget I've been able to turn my apartment into a space that I really enjoy being in. I believe that it shows that a young single girl can have an awesome living space without a lot of money. You can have an adult looking space without being too stuffy or expensive.
