For someone, who has an infatuation with tableware, I haven’t posted much about it. I actually enjoy shooting those as it is a fun and creative way to experiment with textures on a smaller scale. It’s an easy way of creating compositions that exude different moods while hoping to inspire others to have fun setting up a fun table.
Sconces Are Uhh-mazing And Here Is Why
First of all, I would like to share, I was never a big fan of sconces. I always associated sconces to be old fashioned and honestly didn’t pay them any mind. The trend dawned on me during the time I worked for West Elm. People were more keen on using sconces than table lamps, which were either due to lack of space in these ever so small Bostonian apartments or the client just preferred the look of a sconce. Living in this era where living spaces seem to get increasingly smaller, emphasizes how practical and essential these light fixtures can be.
Why Only White Vases And Decor?
A while ago I saw a merch display that featured all white vases and nick-nacks. Something about the serenity and pureness appealed to me and I immediately thought it could work well on the black hot rolled steel shelves in our dining room.
The dining room is a pretty multi-functional room in our home. This is where we eat, work or craft up some DIY projects. It’s basically where a lot of the action and magic happens. It is also a space where great conversations & discussions are held and, of course, memories are made. I think it’s essential to maximize the way you live and use your domicile. It’s healthy and makes you feel happy and more at home, as it offers to house and manifests all layers of your personality.
10 WAYS TO STYLE UP YOUR APARTMENT
The struggle of styling your apartment is real. We all know it. We all go through it. How much do I want to spend on decor? How long am I going to stay for? Should I buy this furniture piece, risking it may not fit in my next place? This is literally the monolog I have on a regular basis.
In my case I sort of go with the flow and I think it’s important to feel good and at home (rented or owned). So I don’t like to restrict myself and like to navigate within the possible and the temporary.
To start things, figure out a master plan and dedicate a budget towards this project, whether you just invest a big chunk of money right away or if you want to dedicate a certain amount per month and splurge on accessories and furniture as you go. The important thing to keep in mind is to make sure to invest in temporary and versatile pieces that won’t ruin any surface in your apartment. Simply, things you can take with you when you move out.
I have created a list of ways on how to effectively style your apartment.
Let’s jump right into it!
Wallpapers are a great way to add character to your home. They are complicated to install, especially, if you are working with patterns or large murals, that needs to be aligned to be perceived as one collective image. The glue is meant to last, which means, taking it off would be quite a project. Thank god for temporary wallpapers! These are just as fancy and a breeze to remove. They definitely are statement pieces that have a great impact in your interior. Essentially it’s like having large unframed artwork.
Tip: Self adhesive vinyl wallpaper is perfect for apartment use. You can actually reuse them by putting it back onto the adhesive backing it came with (it’s hard but doable! It just takes patience, time and at least 2 people!) and reapply it to the walls in your next place.
