Here at Devonshire we are committed to providing you with the best possible apartment rental the city has to offer. In order to transform your apartment rental into your home, you’ll want to find the right decor. Every good decorating scheme not only adheres to a series of principals, it also highlights your personal style. Here are some ways you can give your apartment a personal touch:
Take a Minimalist Approach
Clutter and style don’t pair together very well. When it comes to decorating your apartment, less is definitely more. Start by paring down your belongings and then build the decorating scheme after you have de-cluttered. Hold on to some belongings that hold sentimental value to you as well as items you use. For example, if you love books and enjoy displaying them, choose your favorites and donate the rest. Replace empty spaces that arise after you clear things out with meaningful, decorative pieces that really showcase your personal style.
Adhere to a Cohesive Theme
In order to keep your home looking elegant, consider adopting a theme and sticking with it. One of the ways that you can do this is by purchasing pieces that actually match. For example, instead of picture frames of various styles and colors, buy an assortment of the same color in varying sizes. The pillows on your sofa and chairs should complement the colors you have chosen for your room. They don’t have to be exact duplicates as long as they are a similar color scheme. It might be tempting to buy random pieces because you like them, but you must first consider if they fit into the theme of your apartment.
Learn How to Accessorize
When it comes to decorating an apartment, sometimes it’s the small details that matter the most. Art is a great addition to an apartment. You don’t have to invest in expensive art. Art is personal. You can frame posters, a quote that is meaningful to you, and your own photographs. Before you hang frames, lay them out on the floor to make sure you get the placement and spacing you want. You want to avoid putting unnecessary holes in the walls of your apartment. Other accessories you might consider include candlesticks, vases, plants, and mirrors. Mirrors can make any space look larger.
Use Lighting to Create Ambiance
Although you can’t change the light fixtures that come with your apartment, you can change the ambiance of a room by purchasing extra lamps, such as floor lamps and end table lamps. These lighting options, if carefully curated, can make your apartment look elegant. To really change things up, consider mixing up the strength of the lighting, as well as the color of the bulbs.
No matter how you decide to decorate, you should make sure that your plans conform to your rental agreement. Other than that, we encourage you to use your creativity to highlight your personal style.
