Are you ready to give your Springs luxury apartment home a facelift for the summer? Get inspiration from these creative trends that can bring a fresh new look with minimum cost and effort.
1. Go Green
Greenery, Pantone's 2017 Color of the Year, is expected to pop up in many homes this summer. According to the folks at Pantone, this yellow-green shade symbolizes the "physical beauty and inherent unity of the natural world." Add pops of Greenery to your apartment with vibrantly-colored accessories such as throw pillows and blankets, dinnerware and even shower curtains.
2. Go Green Part II
Is there a better way to incorporate green than with the actual Greenery color? An assortment of houseplants in various colors and styles of containers brings a welcome touch of nature.
3. Back to the Future
Everything old is new again, and on the heels of macramé's comeback, stained glass is enjoying a resurgence of popularity. A vintage weathered piece of stained glass used as a wall hanging makes an eye-catching statement.
4. Inside Out
Summer is a time for relaxing on your patio or balcony. Instead of relying on traditional pieces like Adirondack chairs, think of the outdoors as an extension of your home. Use pieces that look like indoor items, such as a loveseat with throw pillows or a patterned area rug.
5. Belly Up to the Bar
Freestanding bar carts are proving to be a versatile addition to any decor. They can be used to dress up an otherwise underutilized corner, and their portability makes them great for entertaining in apartments. Some designers even suggest using one in the bedroom as a unique change from a conventional nightstand.
6. Sweet Dreams
Your bedroom is your private refuge, and you'll feel like royalty with an upholstered headboard. The look is softer and more luxurious than headboards made with materials such as wood and metal.
7. Pop Your Cork
Cork isn't just for bulletin boards anymore. This neutral material that fits most decor styles can be found in products ranging from table accessories to furniture. Try your hand at one of the many DIY cork items that can be fashioned from wine bottle stoppers.
