Chic Storage Solutions

One of the most challenging things about apartment living is the lack of storage (especially when it comes to NYC). Thus, it is imperative to look for innovative storage solutions that are still chic and tasteful. Look for multi-functional items such as an ottoman with storage or an entryway console table for stashing grab-and-go items.

Add a Cozy Rug

One of the best ways to add warmth to a new place is by investing in a cozy rug. When it comes to saving and splurging, I truly think upgrading to a better quality area rug is worth it. After all, this is what ties a living room or bedroom together. If you are a neutral girl, opt for something with subtle pattern like this checkered rug from Lulu & Georgia (I have this and adore it). However, don’t be afraid to embrace color!

Warm Lighting

Often overlooked, lighting makes all the difference, especially in a small space. To avoid having to install ceiling units, opt for floor and table lamps. Embrace textures and colors to make each room feel more intimate and special. You can even opt for color-changing light bulbs to set the vibe!

Peel and Stick Solutions

One of the best kept apartment decor ideas lies in the magic of the peel and stick. Since you can’t customize your home with new tile and flooring, these stickers are an amazing solution. These days, there are so many chic options to choose from. There’s neutral tile-inspired peel and stick solutions, along with more colorful tiles to add a pop to the bathroom.

Mirror, Mirror On the Wall

When it comes to finding unique apartment decor solutions, use mirrors! These can reflect more natural sunlight and make the space appear larger. Look for wall-mounted styles or floor length for a more dramatic effect. We all know and love the Anthropologie Primrose mirror, but I found a more affordable option here!


I hope these apartment decor ideas inspire you to elevate your own space!
