Bringing style and personality into your apartment doesn’t have to be expensive. With just a few minor changes, you can improve the atmosphere and really make it your own. Sometimes, it’s all about the little details. Your home is somewhere you eat and sleep and spend a lot of your time, so making the effort to freshen things up and bring life into your spaces may even improve your mood every day.
Color is an important part of any home, as different colors inspire different moods and reflect on what kind of person you are. Try picking a few colors that complement each other and the feel of the room you want. Different color schemes can completely change the way a room affects you and experimenting with different colors is an easy way to re-energize your apartment.
If you prefer more muted colors or a minimal style, accent pieces can help give your room a little more character. With your room mainly featuring soft grays or creams, try picking out some cushions or a throw that has a bolder color or print. Then pick out the bold colors and find small décor pieces that are matched in the color scheme to add little accents around your room. You could also try looking out for a bold art print or a selection of framed photos, to create a strong centerpiece for the room which reflects your life and style.
Points of Interest
To keep your spaces looking less like a showroom and more like a home, decorate with touches of things that reflect you and your interests. If you love music, you may want to find an item that showcases your favorite CDs or records. If your hobby is photography, then prints of your best work and a vintage camera can be the focal point on your shelf.
A great way to improve any space is to re-evaluate the lighting. Different types of lighting and the placement of lamps and string lights can make an unbelievable difference to the feel of the room. Another way to improve the atmosphere is to add plants or candles, which instantly add a feeling of warmth and energy to the room. Scented candles will also make your rooms smell lovely, and the scent you use can change the mood. Plus, with so many designs and styles, you can find one that suits your style and looks great too. Frostbeard Studio offers some unique candles for any book-lovers out there. It’s always a bonus if guests come over and your place smells great!
If you have an apartment, it’s likely you don’t have a garden. Bringing the outside in is a great way to add a bit of life into your rooms. Even if you don’t have green fingers, there are plenty of easy-to-care-for options, suited for indoor environments. With such a variety of plants to choose from and all kinds of furniture and vases designed to display them, you can fill your room with as many plants as you wish.
With just these simple options, you can change the style of your apartment or home every month if you really get bored fast. Don’t forget to invite your friends and family over, so they can see the great improvements you’ve made.
