When it comes to upgrading your apartment decor, it can be difficult to decide where to begin.  You’ve outgrown much of your “first apartment” style and want to start investing in some quality pieces you’ll have for a lifetime, but which item should you invest in first?  If you have to pick one item, we recommend starting with an area rug.  Take some time to find a quality piece that will last and will grow with your style over time.  Nothing ties a room together like a rug, so make this your first grown-up decor investment, then build the rest of the room around it!  Here’s some room inspiration as well as a few rugs you can buy right now.

    These rugs are awesome! I love the old-school patterns and fabrics. Some of the rugs even look worn out, which gives them a very nice retro appeal. Rugs are a great compliment to every room, no matter how big or small is. The properly chosen and arranged rug can fix the outlook of every room, no matter how misplaced everything in it might be.
