Even if home sweet home is a crowded downtown apartment, you can always offer the illusion of a wide open space with the perfect decorating statement. With summertime humidity in full force, the look of a cramped living room can result in an uncomfortable space and also overwhelm your humble abode. If you’re wondering how to adorn your apartment this summer, try following these inspiring décor ideas for a beautiful home.
Stick to ivory and cream hues for a refreshing effect: For an instantly welcoming living room, try decorating your space with striking white furnishings. The look of bright white armchairs, cream-coloured accent pillows and an off-white lampshade helps to usher in light. Meanwhile, neutral curtains and fresh white roses in a clear vase can create a feeling of serenity and give the feeling of a larger space.

Choose pastel shades as opposed to a darker colour scheme: Although the season’s funky neon prints and abstract wallpaper may be suitable for a bigger home, there’s no need to overwhelm your space with colour. Create a feminine, youthful area with a candy pink sofa, a woven area rug and white walls decorated with photo frames. For a finishing touch, a slim and modern white coffee table complements your décor.

Make usage of your kitchen space with compact bar stools: Even if your tiny kitchen won’t be featured on a cooking show anytime soon, there’s no reason it shouldn’t be comfortable! Contrast a white marble countertop and gleaming hardwood floors with white bar stools, which are an easy alternative to bulky chairs. This offers more space for entertaining and sipping drinks with friends at home- after all, they say all the good parties end in the kitchen!
