If you’re moving into your first apartment, you’re probably bringing accessories from your college dorm or childhood bedroom. And chances are those things don’t reflect your current style and future aspirations. While apartment accessories are best when they’re collected and curated over time, here are three items that instantly upgrade your new place from student hangout to adult space.
It’s time to ditch the clip-on light/fan combo that kept you cool and illuminated during final exam all-nighters in favor of something a little more mature. Lamps help set the tone for your décor, and you can find them in any style you wish. Go for something rich and chic, like the Cardamom Bronze Lamps; contemporary and sleek, like the Cody Table Lamp; or sophisticated and glitzy, such as the LaMarque Chrome Lamp.
Those posters that decorated your dorm walls were fun when you were dreaming of life after college, but your life is starting now and it’s time to use art to reflect your taste and style. Canvas art is the next step and you will find a variety of choices that fit your décor. Choose a striking contrast of colors, such as the Golden Meadow Canvas; something whimsical, like the Flamingo Canvas; or a tasteful floral work, such as the Floral Dream Canvas.
Finally, accent your furniture by accessorizing with toss pillows. You can add a rich texture with the Kettery Seafoam Pillow; a pop of color with the Selena Fuchsia Pillow; or a contrasting finish with the Satin Gold Pillow. Toss pillows instantly update your sofa, accent chairs, bed or dining room chairs.
