    Just bought a new condo, need help v. design crew

    Just got a place and I need some suggestions on furniture stores. Main ones that I know of are Z Gallerie, West Elm, Ikea, Eurway, Cantoni and EQ3.

    These are the pics from the seller.

    Has potential, I'd start off by painting the walls first and choosing the colors in coordination with the furniture and decor. Then deciding on what type of setup you want furniture to be position in and what style. I would stay with a light paint colors, as your floors aren't too dark so I'd rule out dark browns, etc. Also, there's a sticky thread in this forum with a ton of places to shop at. I've browsed a few of them and there are some really good stores, but first what is your price range?

    what part of dallas are you at? i might be looking for a condo soon... and its hard to find anything decent :x:


    as for furniture stores, what kind of furniture are you looking for? what's your personal style?

    theres gonna be a huge difference in suggestions, prices, and ideas for different styles.

    Do you guys have sites of places that are set up nicely? That'll help a lot.

    Just do I what I do to find inspiration, try browsing Flickr with keywords modern interior design, or modern design, etc. You should find some nice results, of course you will have to browse through the bad ones, but usually there is some nice setups posted on there. I can't post any sites because I'm under 100 posts, but that's a great option to start at.

    apartmenttherapy.com can have some good ideas once in a while... use the search there or find their "house tours" section

    Ross is a good place if you're looking for discounted home decor. I bought some candle holders and frames from there for cheap.
