Apartment Decorating Ideas with Eddie Ross


Hi. I’m Eddie Ross, East Coast Producer and
Editor for Better Homes and Gardens Magazine. Today we are sitting in my apartment which
I like to call a modern mix. It’s things that I’ve collected over the years from furniture
to accessories to tabletop, but when you mix it with new pieces like this Ikea table, it
really gives you that fresh take on eclectic style. The color inspiration for the living
room came from the pair of chairs that I found at the Goodwill. The pillows are a mix of
new and vintage, but the affordable leopard fabric really gives it a high-end look. $1299
for a pair of lamps at the Goodwill, you really can’t go wrong. When it comes to setting a
table you have to know the rules in order to break them. You never want to put the knife
on the wrong side of the plate, but who’s to say you can’t mix pattern, old with new
to achieve an interesting place setting. When I’m setting a table I think of the little
details as table jewelry like salt cellars and cordial glasses for flowers. It really
enhances your dining experience. So when you’re going to create this eclectic style think
of the things that you already have and the new things that you love. Be adventurous when
you’re mixing and matching them together and really make it your own.

Need to change this video's title. This has nothing to do with decorating an apartment.

Very pretty, swanky decor. Reminds me of good ol' Savannah, GA stylings.
