Having your own apartment offers an opportunity to show off your personality while incorporating some of the local culture. Montreal is a city filled with diverse cultures and excitement, so why not showcase some of that in your trendy new apartment? There are many ways to give your apartment a refreshing new design bringing in inspiration from the city around you. Whether you just moved in or if you have lived in your apartment for years, it’s never too late to update and rejuvenate your living space!
Create a Focal Point
Your apartment should be a reflection of you and your style. Start in the living room. Do you have a wall that is large and clearly meant to be a focal point of the room? Consider making that large wall into an accent wall. This can be done with stencils, paint, a steady hand and hours of patience. A removable stick-on decal is also a good option if you’re looking for a more temporary update, or your apartment would require you to paint the walls back to normal before you move out. Once completed the wall will be an amazing display of your creativity and will instantly make any apartment look more inviting and exciting.
Incorporate Local Montreal Design & Charm
Try to infuse your apartment with little bits of Montreal’s heritage. Visit the Bonsecours Market and browse the shops to find the perfect piece of art or sculpture to set up in your apartment. It will act as a constant reminder of your beautiful city. Either way, a little bit of local pride will be sure to give your apartment the pizzazz you crave!
Next, think about your lighting. There is a lot that can be done in a room with fun lighting. Consider getting a floor lamp with a colourful lamp shade with some dim lights. These lights can be turned on to create a sense of serenity and style in your apartment without being harsh on the eyes. Perfect for entertaining or for a relaxing night in alone!
Creative Shelving and Storage
If your apartment is on the smaller side, consider getting creative with how you display your personal items. Floating shelves are a great way to showcase some of your prized possessions, such as books, awards, movies, trophies, etc. They do not take up valuable floor space and they allow for a creative element on otherwise unused wall space.
Expressing your creativity within or on your apartment walls is a fun way to not only jazz up your living space but make it feel like new! We all spend a lot of time in our homes so make your special by giving it an exciting and refreshing makeover!
