The holidays make me want to buy things, THUS it is the best time to find DIY design hacks for my apartment so I don’t spend $400 on a side table. $50 is a price I can handle. I am obsessed with the copper and marble combination.
Thank you Camile Styles for this awesome article with 10 tips for making your bar cart beautiful.
The best is #10 which is pretty much my life philosphy: It should be both functional and beautiful. Your bar cart serves a very distinct purpose, but it should also be a piece that you love looking at.
Wall Decal FTW.
I love this totally easy way to spice up an otherwise simple color palette. In hot pink or possibly some other hue? Thank you The Office Stylist for this design inspiration! I’m thinking this version may be painted on, but for all you other renters out there, find a great wall decal it’ll peel off when you move!
SELF INDULGENCE ALERT.
You must be thinking what does this poster have to do with thelittlestapartment? WELL… I will tell you… not much. I am hosting a Hunger Games viewing tomorrow night and we decided to spice (or should I say spike) things up.
My poster combines my 3 favorite things: designing, drinking, and THE HUNGER GAMES.
May the odds be ever in your favor.
We all know how I love a statement wall.
Now to acquire a staircase…

36 Things You Obviously Need in Your New Home… A girl can dream.
Bling out your garden, budget edition.
Even though they are FABULOUS, this reindeer wallmount and gilded golden hose could put you in the red upwards of $500 and I find that WHOLLY unacceptable. (Then again if I could afford an apartment with a garden then maybe I could afford a $150 hose…)
MY VOTE. Spray paint a watering can an equally fabulous shade of metallic gold.
Renting your apartment? Can’t paint your white walls? Make them work for you instead of against you!
Pick a fabulous accent color and integrate it into your furnishings and artwork. These framed vintage scarves set the tone for a bold statement and an amazing look. I love the hot pink against the natural wood. Afraid of hot pink? I’m pretty sure any color will do :)
I was feeling restless so I changed up thelittlestapartment. The blog. Not the apartment. Yet.
Pink is the new teal.
If you rent your little apartment then you may not be afforded the luxery of casually repainting whenever you get a little antsy. Or knocking out walls to do some recontructive surgery. I also don’t recommend chopping off all your hair (that was my first inclination.)
I have a feature wall in my living room and so instead of repainting I like to swap out some of the prints or hang a new random (flat) object in that awkward empty space that was created when I ran out of frames. There was a teal snowflake for winter, and I’m entertaining the idea of a floral wreath for a little summer fun.
Turning your wall into a closet is the ULTIMATE expression of thelittlestapartment resourcefulness. Also. Can I have that dress please?
While the idea of having a bedroom AND a guest room to decorate is only a fantasy the frills and drapes used in both these rooms could make any small space feel cozy instead of squishy.
This type of wonderous style makes me wish I owned more books and had a more oddly shaped bedroom.
