Welcome back for Part Two of how to decorate your apartment! We discuss 3 more styles that you can choose from when making your apartment your own.
The rich colors and bold statements in Europe’s Mediterranean region have grown to be more and more popular over the last few years. This style is influenced by many different cultures from Spain, Greece and Italy to name a few. Wrought iron, patterned tiles, stucco walls and bright fabrics with various textures help to bring this whole look together. You could also take a more earthy approach with this look by including accents from the sea, sky and land around you. Instead of using the soft blue of the sky, try stepping it up a notch with a vibrant teal from the ocean. Red, orange and yellow prove to be a popular color combination when it comes to this design style. Mediterranean design is all about taking risks and mixing textures, colors and mediums.
If you love the outdoors and would like to bring the outside in, then rustic design could suite your home very well. Bring nature into your home by incorporating elements from the outdoors. Include style from the sky, land, sea and plants. The use of natural woods is almost always a necessary part in rustic design. Adding a stone backsplash to your kitchen or a slate tiled floor could help bring the rock element into your design. Think log cabin or the mountain terrain when decorating.
Eclectic spaces mix many different kinds of styles and allow you to make your home as unique as you are. The crazier the mix, the more eclectic your style. Bring in family heirlooms, items you found on your travels, and other personal items to make your space as unique as possible. Eclectic spaces are often found to be interesting while remaining cozy and comfortable.
