Decorating Advice for First Studio?

Decorating Advice for First Studio?

Q: I just moved into a new studio. I have always had roommates and a larger space so living in a studio has been very new to me. I love living by myself but I am having a hard time deciding what to do with the space. I want it to be cute and decorated modern and feminine without becoming too cluttered or too much for a small space.

Here are some pictures of the space. My furniture is pretty much all black, grey steel, and white. I wanted to add touches of blue throughout the studio. I recently got 5 printed Madeline Weinrib pillows for my couch and chair. I am thinking of getting new bed sheets with blue scalloped edges and blue monogram. I need to find a media center for my TV stuff and was thinking about this Room&Board one.

I would like to find some blue accessories to put in there as well if anyone has any ideas. I wasn't sure if it would be too much steel since my bed and coffee table are also steel. I would love suggestions on what you think I should do and how to make it cute! I am also looking for some art above my couch and above the bed.

I was thinking maybe this mirror above the couch or to find something similar to these Paul Villinski blue butterflies.

Would love to know everyones ideas! Thank you!
