Using Apartment-Size Furniture in Small Spaces

 

You don’t have to live in an apartment to appreciate apartment-size furniture. After all, homes come with rooms of all sizes, and some have tight spaces that may seem impossible to furnish or decorate. Until now.

Design Trend: Bright Neon

 

Neon is upbeat, exhilarating and festive, but using it to decorate your home can be a tricky task. The wrong implementation can create chaos, potentially look tacky and you are sure to be bored with it by the end of the season. Alternatively, the right neon can help establish a classic and long-lasting look that is far more than just a fad.

The useful life of your sofa, armchair or dining table may be far from over, in fact they could still be in pristine condition, and yet many of us find ourselves at odds with our furnishings believing they have become boring and dull. Just because their “spark” has somewhat fizzled, does not mean it is time to give up on any of your pieces. Remember how much time and effort you spent picking them out? Abandoning them now just wouldn’t seem right. Instead, look to alternatives to give your furnishings new found joy in your life and your home.
