Art Gallery Living and Dining Room

Design experts take an apartment from drab to fab.

Before: Drab Living Room

Heather Downie and Christianne Mejia are roommates who want their apartment to be as hip and creative as they are. Heather is a photography student and Christianne is an art student, so they would like a space where they can create their art as well as entertain and relax.

Heather and Christianne's apartment building has a modern style they love, but their current furnishings don't reflect their funky, urban style or the building's contemporary architecture. Their decor is a collection of curbside finds and mismatched furniture they have accumulated since they moved in together, so the room lacks a cohesive style. Space is at a premium in any apartment situation, and they need a storage solution to house their media as well as lighting to brighten up the space.
