Nice bargain right.. #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. That’s it,
