You don’t have to be an interior decorator to make your
apartment look fashionable and inviting. Just a few easy updates will give your
apartment a fresh, new look – and it won’t cost you a lot of time or money.
Here are 20 ways to express your style and creativity in your space:

  1. Update a lampshade with some paint. Use stencils
    or try it freehand.
  2. Make your small kitchen look modern with black
    and white accessories.
  3. Find some prints or old photos you love and
    enlarge them for your walls.
  4. Mix up the dining room. Instead of matching
    table and chairs, mix it up by finding antique chairs in a variety of styles
  5. Use different variations of a single color to
    give your bedroom a modern, funky look.
  6. Put small and large accessories together in a
    grouping.
  7. Try using photo mats that are the same color as
    your wall.
  8. Put your artwork in an asymmetrical grouping.
  9. Add tassels to a throw pillow.
  10. Define your living space with a bold, circular
    rug.
  11. Paint some old chairs a bright, vivid color
    (think tangerine orange or peacock blue).
  12. Add some flowers to the dining room table.
  13. Change your standard lightbulbs to some Edison
    bulbs for an industrial look.
  14. Add an oversized light fixture to your dining
    room (think big and bold).
  15. Use floating shelves to display your favorite
    collections.
  16. Twine and mini clothespins make a great way to
    display photos, and you can switch them out often.
  17. Add some pale shades or pastels to make your
    apartment feel light and airy.
  18. Hang photos from floor to ceiling. Use adhesive
    hooks so you don’t leave marks on the wall.
  19. Coordinate your bathroom towels to match the rug
    and shower curtain.
  20. Add mirrors to a small room to make it appear larger.
