When designing my apartment, where do I begin?

First ~ imagine your apartment is naked. Designers refer to what they do as dressing a room. Your space needs some underwear man! Start with the bottom layer, the flat surfaces—that is, floors and walls. Once you decide on a rug, it’s easy to adjust the other choices in the room to fit the rug. Layering design decisions from the rug up is a simple strategy for any space. Shop Rugs.


Is my design style too trendy?

Probably. But trendy is fun! Until it's not. Learning how to strike a balance between trendy and timeless is a true art. It is impractical to completely redo your home and furniture every five years, it’s just about impossible to keep up on the trends. So, we suggest sprinkling your space with trendy pieces that can easily be replaced. Throw pillows, duvet covers, shower curtains, art prints - are simple ways to keep your designs current, without breaking the bank.


Sh*t Everywhere!

My friend, the good news is there are so many great options to bring a creative twist on such storage/decorating dilemmas! It’s great to have so many fun pieces to work with but there is a fine line between collectables and hoarder.

RULE #1: group your sh*t. Preferably in arrangements of two or three, then start layering. For example, take a stack of your coffee table books and top the collection with a unique object, picture frame or small plant. As you start arranging these mini vignettes, make sure to give some space between them. You can use vases, handmade objects, and larger frames to help break up the groupings. Shop Room Accents.
