Rent in Style
See how one young professional took her first apartment from bland to beautiful using hand-me-down furniture, flea-market finds, and a little creative thinking.
Caroline dresses up a simple cake with fresh fruit, and creates simple arrangements (with flowers from the market) in recycled bottles. Appetizer-size plates leave more room on the table and are more suitable for a smaller-scale soiree. Cloth napkins are an eco-friendly option and can be used to reinforce your color palette. Look for options that are machine washable.
