Your Upton apartment is already styled with the modern elegance of designer tile backsplashes, a slide-in range, and a cool color palette. It can only be enhanced by your unique décor. Why not try something new? Here are our suggestions for refreshing your interior design – simple changes to refresh your decor and make a big difference:
Paint an Accent Wall
Accent walls add something striking and bold to your color palette. They also make it easier to decorate; a room instantly looks less plain with a contrasting pop of color. Use a shade from a favorite throw rug or painting in the room to help inspire your choice of color.
Add New Colors with New Accessories
An old couch can look new again with properly styled pillows and even throws. Replace solid colored pillows with patterns, or try a textured accent pillow to catch the eye. For a modern look, go for an odd number of pillows. Large geometric prints on a smooth surface look particularly sleek in a contemporary décor scheme.
Change Up Your Layout
Did you know there are specific ways to arrange furniture in order to optimize your space? If you didn’t have these methods in mind when you first decorated, try them out now and see what an improvement they make!
- Face your favorite view – Arrange your furniture to face your floor to ceiling windows, or your TV—whatever feature you most want to take advantage of. You can also create a focal point for your furniture with a piece of art.
- Face your guests – To ensure easy chatting, place seating no more than 8 feet apart. Side tables or grouped chairs can accompany sofas so that everyone in the room can engage.
- Make some space – Create walkways. The standard for furniture is 30 inches between pieces. Allow 14-18 inches between tables and sofas to keep drinks and t.v. remotes in reach.
