Then it was time for adult life. You knew it would arrive someday. Good news is, it’s time to decorate your home exactly as you want it to be! However, not all adults can afford adult prices. So, at first, it looks like you already have several challenges. It’s hard enough to “act your age,” let alone to afford your age! To help you with these challenges, we have gathered a few grown-up solutions to make your apartment as cozy as your adult life should be.
1. Put your blankets on display.
You can take out your blankets and show them off!! Whether you put them in a basket or on a ladder, they can become beautiful and cozy decorations.
2. Grab a pretty branch or oversized leaf from the great outdoors, and put it in a jug or vase that you already own.
To add a little green to your room, pop a big leaf or two in a pretty vase and you have the impact of a plant.
3. Use your holidays light all year round.
Christmas lights can be used all year round, if used correctly. Put them behind a white curtain in the corner and they overcome cheesy and become cozy and classy.
4. Gather all of your candles in one place.
The power of assembly! A single candle randomly lit will not have the same effect as if you assemble many on one single tray or plate (a silver plate is perfect for that). All together they will have the glowing impact of a fireplace.
5. Rearrange the art you already own into a gallery wall.
Gather the art you already have scattered around the house, think about pallets and the conversation you want to establish among them, frame them when necessary and create your own gallery. We have found a guideline to do it here.
It's the little details that are vital. Little things make big things happen. That’s true for life and for decorating as well. If you don’t mind us providing you with more inspiration, click here.
