Quick and Easy Apartment Decorating Ideas
If what you see when you walk into your living room is a work over low table, bare walls, and Mom’s sea froth green with mustard yellow paisleys couch, you seriously need a change. You want something that fits you! But what if you do not have the funds to buy that beautiful $2,000 nutmeg suede settee in last month’s Pottery Barn catalog? Are you stuck? Fully not.
Here’s how to make do with what you have, add some newness-and cause it look excellent for under $100. It isn’t a new sofa….
Slip covers are the most effective way to go. For cheap slip covers, hit up your outlet malls or get online. The least expensive site I’ve found for slip covers is overstock.com. They even have nutmeg suede slipcovers! It’s not Pottery Barn, but hey, it is not sea froth green either. I’ve seen them on this site for: $29.99.
2. Spice up the “new sofa”
For cheap yet nice throw pillows, my favorite place is Ross ( TJ Maxx and Marshalls also work). Hopefully you have one of these stores in your city! Another choice is to get throw pillow slip covers too. I’ve seen new throw pillows at Ross for as cheap as: $7.99
3. From the windows to the wall
Painted photos particularly make you appear to be you given a large amount of thought to decorating your apartment-oh, and that you’re also well-rounded and cultured ( so long as they are not paintings of an old woman on a bear skin rug ). You can spend around $20 for 2.
4. From footage to picture-perfect
Start with your used low table. Pictures aren’t your thing? You can also take paper coasters from eateries and organize them on the table top. Then add table top glass in the same shape as your low table to set over your photographs or coasters.
Hit up Craigslist for the glass. I’ve seen a nice one for $15. These coasters tend to be subtle yet appealing, and frankly, they are just cooler.
2 Paintings- $20
Glass for table-$15
You’ve just revamped the major focal points of your living room. Be proud of where you live and make it you.
