10 Apartment decor ideas
. #1: Bohemian Comfort. The image above brings a touch of bohemian comfort. That contented ease shared through color and a carefree arrangement may appear easy to accomplish but it is probably the most difficult, if you aren’t careful. If you are decorating a rented apartment it may come with plenty of restrictions. For instance, when you break the rules about painting your landlord doesn’t report you to police: they only keep a part of your deposit. Since parting with your hard-earned cash should never be a choice you must live with, your options are simple: you can paint now and then re-paint before you leave or forfeit a part of your deposit money.
#2: Personal Touch. Try this for inspiration. A gradient of colors on the wall that create a soft but colorful background for your treasures. Need reasons? Sharing a space with someone you love provides the perfect excuse to add personal touches to your sanctuary.
#3: Unexpected Ambience. As we all know the accessories often make or break the room. The softness of the coverlet in contrast with the harder pillow covers creates an unexpected ambiance. Think of hanging pictures, and you now have an array of choices for fasteners. There are sticky items that really work or tiny picture hangers that barely make a hole. It’s worth it, especially if you plan to stay in the same property for a few years!
#4: Texture Talks. Look for textures that you can include in your design. You can use them on the walls, fabrics or even in photographs. They bring a touch of the earth inside. A simple pleather or leather pillow on a linen couch can really alter the mood of the room. Now switch that mental image to burlap. It is earthier and has a rougher texture but is just as elegant in its own way. Don’t be afraid to experiment.
#5 Tiny Bedroom. Very small apartments often have tiny bedrooms or no “room” at all. This calls for unique furnishings such as the one seen in the picture.
#6 Convertibles are In Demand. Convertibles are available for every room in the house. There are multifunctional pieces that do double duty or, in other words, fold out of site to increase your usable floor space. For instance, there are coffee tables that rise to the height of a dining table, bookcases that turn into day beds and so on. And if you can’t fold it up, lift it up for storage. This is not only a beautiful and stylish bed but also it is a hidden haven for all your valuable goodies or linens.
#7 Distressed Look. There’s no denying that inspiration comes from many sources. For instance, images remind us of a special day or relationship. In short, a simple picture can stimulate your imagination. You probably wouldn’t want to use this technique on the apartment door, but you could get one to use as a table, a desk or even a headboard. Distressed looks increase interest and balminess where ever they are. This old door may remind you of your grandparents’ house”a place where warm cookies and good times await you.
#8 Blast of Color. Living room choices can either be understated in color and furnishings or offer a blast of color to liven up your space. The circular centerpiece is a definite attention-grabber, but the true star of the room is the bursts of color for contrast. That blast of orange outshines the centerpiece in many ways. The mixture simply draws the eyes around the room and then come the words of praise.
#9 Add Modular Furniture. The image uses the same techniques with cooler tones and modular-type furniture. Some people believe age has a huge influence on your style, but I believe it is more likely to be your personality. For example, many people can’t stand cluttered settings while a few of you would vouch for the warmth all-things-cluttered brings to the setting. Furniture with clean lines does not require the colors to be in cold tones. You can always add that missing temperateness and increase the sense of relaxation with a few warm colors.
#10 Reused Items. It is imperative that you surround yourself with images, you love. Even the smallest items define who you are. How about reusing an old pair of earrings as a knob for a small chest? Or an ornate old-fashioned light switch cover mixed with a modern theme to bring forth a gracious balance. Did you ever walk into a room that smells like cookies, or the clean odor of sunshine? You can create that smell with candles or incense sticks. When designing your home consider the overall decor, not just sight, and you’d never go wrong with decor.
