This year is my first year moving out of the campus dorms into an apartment. I am overjoyed to be able to decorate and hang out in a larger space with roommates and friends! I also have the ability to experiment a little more with cooking and baking rather than having a campus meal plan. So, here are some fun, decorative things to look for a first apartment:
1.) Wall Tapestry
This decoration piece has the ability to add some brightness to the room and style. Try to find something that works with the color of the furniture and space while adding some creative flourishes.
2.) Coffee Table
A decent-sized coffee table offers someplace nice to set your drinks or books while watching TV or chilling on the couch. It also offers a great informal space for board games with friends. Coffee tables don’t have to be overly expensive either and finding a second-hand table in good condition is another option for a tight budget.
3.) Mason Jars
I like the picnic aesthetic that mason jars bring, whether it serves as glasses for lemonade, tea, or water or even as a way to contain cereal or ingredients. Mason jars are an interesting choice for decorative kitchenware.
4.) Wall Stickers
Easy-to-peel and inexpensive, wall stickers can be a simple but effective way to add some color and design to your space. I found some for my apartment from Dollar Tree.
Decorative Pillows can be a great way to add to your furniture’s comfort and also the color scheme of the room.
Overall, whether you are moving into your first apartment or your tenth, I hope you can find these few decorative and eye-catching items for your special space. Happy searching! :)
