Although difficult child's disability may not be reinstated I'm trying to figure out how to fix up a studio apartment IF he gets approved and gets to move into the supported living complex. I haven't seen the unit but know it does not have a bedroom, it does have loads of built in storage (which I'm assuming includes space for clothes eliminating the need for a dresser) and all the kitchen essentials (microwave etc). He is not a neat-nik. In the apartment he had for six months all the furtniture was used....pretty obviously used...and even though he then had a separate bedroom everything was messy or beyond. I think it is important to make "his" home neat & nice as much as possible. Obviously he needs a futon or a sleeper sofa, lamps and someplace for "company" if he has a visitor to play games or watch tv. I'm thinking less is more but I have no sense of decorating. Is there a web site that features apartment decorating? I have looked for magazines but haven't seen any for small spaces. Once on AOL they had a feature showing NYC small apartments decorated in an appealing way. Any guidance? IF he gets it I don't want GFGmom to load it up with the used, stained, stuff from his first apartment. I hope to get "new" "used" furtniture that will make it welcoming and indicative of a fresh start. DDD Sense he is sloppy I was thinking maybe cheap leather that can be wiped clean in lieu of fabric that will soon be covered by catsup stains.
