3 Apartment Decorating Tips

Once you’ve moved into your luxury apartment at The Bristol, it’s time to create a personalized space by adding décor. Decorating your apartment doesn’t need to be a confusing or stressful task—instead, it should be a relaxing and enjoyable experience as you fill each room with personality, style, and color. Check out these helpful apartment decorating tips and use them as a springboard to create your ideal living space in Morrisville, NC:

Mix Your Influences

One of the best ways to imbue your apartment with personality is to mix your decorating influences. Find inspiration in the things you love most, whether they’re antique furniture, native plants, vacation photos, or a beloved set of linens. Pick one feature to serve as the centerpiece for each room’s décor, then build the rest of your room around its colors, patterns, or textures. Remember that not all your décor needs to match—in fact, some of today’s most popular interior designs feature a mix of various styles and trends rather than decorative items that all match impeccably. Too many matching elements can actually make a room feel cold and uninviting, while a mix of various styles and accessories makes you apartment feel more personalized and warm. Filling each room with a variety of styles also helps to maintain an apartment that is visually interesting and unique.

Add Rugs

Rugs are an excellent way to add color, texture, and comfort to your luxury apartment space. Area rugs warm up wooden or tile floors—both literally and figuratively—to make a room feel warmer and more inviting. Don’t be afraid to layer rugs over carpeting as well to enhance underfoot comfort and bring additional color and texture into a carpeted room. Rugs are extremely versatile and you can use them either as standout centerpieces or as complementary accessories that blend into the rest of your apartment’s décor.

Frame Artwork

The trick to making artwork pop is to frame it. Frames not only show off great art, they also protect the pieces within from dirt and moisture. When framing artwork, you can choose to follow one of two paths: identical frames or an eclectic mix of frames. Framing a number of pieces with identical frames creates a feeling of unity and lays the groundwork for a breathtaking display. Create a geometric pattern of photos, posters, or other artwork on one wall for a dazzling feature that will draw the eye. Alternatively, you can choose to frame each piece of art in a unique frame to create a more varied collection of art. The trick to this style of decorating is to ensure that each frame, no matter how different, shares a similar element with the frames around it—color, shape, style, or size.
