Sita Poudyel and her husband began renting this 693-square-foot apartment in Seattle in 2022. Although the one-bedroom space is small, Sita says their biggest goal when decorating the rental was to try and “make the space look and feel spacious without sacrificing the design aspect.”

Sita is an interior design student, and her husband works from home two days a week, so they needed to make areas in the small space that they each could work from. They have a “little corner desk” in the living room that’s “dedicated to his work,” but Sita explains that the desk in the bedroom is one of her favorite places to tackle college assignments.

"I purchased the big art from Theposterclub, The vase is from Anthropologie and the desk and the lamp are from Target and the chair is from Amazon home."

Sita describes their apartment as “peaceful, fun, and warm” and explains that while everything in the apartment reflects her identity, she’s got a favorite tool for decorating. “I must accept that, out of all the things, floral arrangements are my favorite way to decorate the space,” she writes. “It makes a colorful difference.”
