5 tips to Style and Personalise your Apartment

By Gemma Deal

There’s a saying which goes: “the home is where the heart is”. It comes from the idea that, for a house to become a home, you should pour your heart and soul into making it your very own.

To feel truly able to relax, unwind and enjoy the space around you, it’s important to bring your personality and lifestyle into the way you furnish and decorate it. Here are a few ideas and tips on how you could style and personalise your apartment to get it feeling extra special.


Incorporating art into your living space is a sure fire way to make it about you. Carefully choose the pieces that you love and evoke the kind of feelings and memories that you want to be surrounded by, whether you’re a lover of traditional, cultural pieces of art, or the more modern works.

Furniture with Storage

One of the best ways to feel comfortable and relaxed in your home is to minimise clutter. Furniture with storage will help you create a neat and tidy retreat, by offering a place to store things away until the next time you need them.

Window Furnishings are extremely important

Our eyes are often drawn to the windows of a home, which, as well as offering the pleasure of a beautiful view, should have attractive window furnishings that are in keeping with the style of your apartment.

Add Mirrors

Using beautifully designed mirrors will not only enhance the visual appeal of your living space, but they have an amazing ability to open up a room, effortlessly adding space and light.

Go light (Paint Colours)

When painting the walls and ceilings of your apartment, keep the colour schemes light and subtle to give the appearance of space. Imagine it as a blank canvas that can be enhanced by beautiful furniture and artwork.
