A great distraction from those brick walls  or egg shells is bold colored furniture. Not all apartments let you paint your wall whatever color your heart desires, but they cannot control what color furniture you chose to put in your apartment. Go with your favorite color and do not be afraid to buy a burgundy, emerald green, teal or orange sofa. It creates a statement by contrasting against the plain colored walls and you can always balance it out with an area rug.

If you cannot find a bold colored sofa, try an area rug. Area Rugs create a contrast with an effect of complimenting different accents in the room.

QUICK COVER I’M NAKED! Of course your walls are! Add some wall accents, artwork, abstract art, mirrors, a clock or even little quotes you print out or scrapbook in a frame can even do the job. Wall accents in a large room can make a room look smaller. Not only does wall accents take away from the size of a room, it is also just great way to tell people about your style. A bohemian home may have dreamcatchers or tapestries over their wall, compared to the modern western home whom may have natural cut wood or stone.


4. Accent Pillows

The sunlight is not just for you, but for the plants too. Plants are vital natural air purifiers and are a great way to take up empty space. You can buy a small ivy or an indoor fig tree to add décor.

What’s on your coffee table? It better not be naked or piled with a bunch of junk mail. If it is, clean and polish it off. Top it off with a few magazines or books, but do not go overboard it can look a bit like a mess. Crystals are great too, whether you have a bowl of crystals or even a medium sized cluster. A small succulent, vintage tea pot, pink Himalayan salt lamp or anything that you find stylish in your eyes can go along in decorating your coffee table.
