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: http://www.bigoo.ws/code/preview/172761.htm
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!

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 decor..it'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.

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