Improving your home to look more beautiful is not always about funding a full home renovation project as you can do it yourself with simple things. Cleaning up, rearranging, repainting, and doing little decoration are some examples that you can do them alone in your spare time.
A product designer, Aviva M Shulem, had submitted her DIY apartment decorating work to Apartment Therapy as this can be a great reference for us to beautify our living space. Her creative way to improve a 450 sf studio apartment with colorful decoration is genuine as she knew how to do it correctly.
Small Space with Colorful Fillers
The owner has been living in this apartment since 2010 and she had done many improvements to make it cozy and beautiful. As she works as a product designer, her insight has helped her in selecting the decoration that can fit her place.
The apartment is very well-decorated as all things are having value besides their aesthetic function. There is no specific style that applied in this space as we can consider a mixed style with a strong Boho vibe and some eclectic accents.
Just like an artist’s home, this studio apartment is really well decorated. All decorations seem to be carefully curated to achieve a certain trait that she love it very much. The color combination looks very brave at a glance but if we put further attention, it clearly gives a display of a peaceful earthy tone that mingles with artistic elements.
The earthy colors in the background are the basic elements that provide this home with more homey vibes that feel cozy and friendly. The living room rug, sofa, and cushion covers are some elements that are set to give a more comfortable vibe as they are also giving a texture to the base layers.
Natural Decoration and Artsy Decoration
Moreover, a natural home style that is often associated as Boho style is also giving extra friendly character to spoil the homeowner with a more comfortable feeling.
The natural decorations are not overly filling over the place like how a Boho home should be. There is just a decent number of them to give a beautiful view that will work with basic earth color.
Besides natural decoration, the homeowner seems to love antiquities in her home. We can see some of them are set in different places together with several artistic decors.
Another decoration that should never be overlooked is the vignette. They are almost in all parts of this studio apartment which function is not merely to decorate but also to give a visual identity to space where it was hung.
The tips given by the homeowner is to not afraid of experimenting. The job will take times but we will surely be able to conclude what things that we want and how to give it for the interior.
The aesthetic value should be put as the top priority while we are working on an interior improvement. Moreover, she told us to be more selective before we decide to purchase anything, Thus it will help us to give the best combination that compromises our taste and style.
