Everything you need for the perfect college apartment living room

Tv stand

A simple tv stand like this one can transform your whole living room. it’s great for placing your games if you play and decoders. adding a few decor pieces on it as well can make it even better.



couch for apartment decor

What’s a living room without a couch? couches come in different shapes and sizes. it’s really up to you to decide the one you want depending on your space and taste.



Tv is a must-have. even if you’re someone that does everything on their laptop, you will still need a tv for movie night. or when you feel like watching your favorite shows on a bigger screen. there are so many tv companies but the ones from LG and Samsung are amazing.

Coffee table

this is not exactly necessary but having a coffee table in the middle of your living room can make you feel bougie. When you buy one like this one, you have space underneath to keep other things like books which will always be great.



if you’re someone like me that doesn’t like bright lights, the lamps will be your best friend. a great standing lamp with adjustable lighting will always be recommended here.


Throw pillows

am I the only one that loves throw pillows? I don’t think so. throw pillows on the couch are amazing. first, they make your couch prettier, and then they are great for cuddles or taking a nap.
