When you move into a new apartment, one of the first things you consider as you get all of your possessions unpacked and put away is how you are going to decorate your new space. Your living room is particularly important as it is where you will do the majority of your entertaining and will be the first impression any guests get of your new home. As such, you want to be sure to decorate your living room walls in a way that is unique, interesting, and that properly expresses your individual taste and personality.
Get to know a few ways that you can decorate your new living room space that will help you do just that:
Colored Glass Vases
When you move into a rental apartment, the walls are almost always plain white or beige. While this may seem boring and drab to you, it also gives you a nice blank canvas to work with. So, one of the first things you will want to do is add a splash of color.
To do this, all you need to do is install some basic wooden or metal shelving along the walls to hold items and knick-knacks. Then, buy some colored glass vases to display on those shelves.
Colored glass vases come in just about any shape, size, and color combination that you can think of. Choose a set scheme of blues and greens, or reds and oranges, or mix and match to add variety and eclectic style to your living room decor. And, if you ever get a bouquet of flowers, you will have no shortage of beautiful colored glass vases to display them in.
Wall Decal Stickers
If you are not a particularly handy or creative person, you can still decorate your living room walls in a way that is unique and interesting. While installing shelving, or painting your walls may be out of the question given your skill set, you can easily find interesting wall decal stickers that you can apply to your walls to liven up your living room space.
Wall decal stickers are just like larger versions of the stickers you played with when you were a child. And they come in a wide variety of styles and designs. If you are a person who likes abstract designs and geometric patterns, you can create a border along the top or side edges of your walls using wall decals in such patterns.
If you prefer something large-scale and dramatic, you can get a set of wall decal stickers that when put together create a giant tree complete with trunk, branches, and leaves. Floral patterns, phrases and sayings, animals, and even faux windows are all wall decal options. And, if you are feeling particularly imaginative, some are available in 3-D as well.
As you can see, there are simple but fun and unique ways that you can decorate your living room walls in your new apartment. So, keep these ideas in mind as you begin planning how you will decorate your new living room walls.
