Dear AT,

My boyfriend and I just bought a new apartment.

It's brand new and has no fixtures yet except the built in kitchen.

I've attached a picture of the kitchen which goes all along one of the four walls.

The living room and kitchen are all together in one square room.

The walls are magnolia and there is lots of natural light with yellowish pine floor length windows all along the opposite wall to the kitchen.

We're on a really tight budget, but would love to decorate...

We've scoured the free furniture recycling websites and have found some very old fashioned pieces like this coffee table.

Any tips on how we can decorate the apartment on little or no budget with this eclectic mix of furniture.

I love bright colors, interesting pieces of furniture and would like the apartment to look modern or retro, rather than the old furniture just to look old and completely out of place.

Thanks! Jessica
