decor dreams: the living room

it's amazing how quickly time flies by when you're in the middle of big life changes... i hardly noticed that we progressed from 2012 to 2013 a few weeks ago. i just made a major move from vermont to colorado, and am pretty excited to see what the next few months have in store for me. 

the boyfriend and i have this great little apartment, but at the moment it is BARE. as in, devoid of practically all furniture, artwork, cooking supplies, etc... it's pretty amazing how little we actually need on a day-to-day basis. decorating and making this place feel like home is a long way off (the job hunt is taking priority right now!), but i can't help dreaming about what i want to do to our tiny space.  i'm thinking i'm going to have the most fun with our living room: it's open, has lots of natural light, and a fireplace!

when i started collecting images of pieces that inspired me, i was surprised by the preppy vibe i was exuding... but i think being in a new place is a great excuse to try tastes that are a little out of my wheelhouse. 

any advice for taking on a completely empty apartment? i'm all ears!
