Decorating ideas?!
I just moved into my apartment in April and I just only recently got a living room set and just yesterday a dining table & chairs. I love modern style but not extremely minimalistic. I have a purply brown carpet that looks a little more on the brown side when its dark. During the day it somewhat looks like this:
The manager won't let me change the carpet which I don't mind too much. I started to really like flawless cleanup. I need some ideas for my apartment in general!

Here is a weirdly angled photo of my apt which makes it look very narrow. But i will take more photos today.

Thanks! wow you are so awesome for taking time and doing that. I knew that blue went well with brown/beige but i personally didn't want to take that route. I want some classy modern's impossible to find!!! Unless its 1k^..

Carpet is not bad. You can use most of the best combinations on this. For example, you can use light coffee, cream, light wood etc. I am sharing some snaps with you. You can try these ideas.

Since your carpet appears to be creamy/beige, maybe a grey with a taupe or brownish undertone will work in your space. You can introduce more vibrant color through art, accessories and the like.

I agree... I am loving grey right now! I used it in redoing my bedroom recently!
