Image from SF Girl by Bay There's lots of temporary decor ideas for apartment living. I know that some of you peruse the internet for design blogs looking for inspiration and then give up because you realize you live in an apartment. Although there are limitations to apartment living, there is no reason you shouldn't be able to create a stylish environment that you feel comfortable in. Lighting The first issue is often lighting because no one wants to deal with electrical, I get it. Neither do I. But modern swag lamps are a very easy solution... All you need is a hook, never mind all the electrical hassle! Seagrass Giclee Glow Drum Shade 10-Inch-H Swag Pendant Textures / Layering You can help any space feel more like home with soft textures, layered or not. Decorative pillows, area rugs, throws are all great ideas. But I love the idea of using a faux fur rug to drape over furniture. Paint One of the easiest ways to upgrade and add personality to any space is with paint. You can select a fun or classic color and paint all your walls, one of your walls or half of one wall. With paint, you can be as risky as you want, or not at all. Image from Cubicle Refugee Paint your walls a fun color for temporary apartment living. Shelving Installing shelving is another great way to add dimension to your design without permanently impacting the home. There are different shelving units you can buy, some that need to be drilled into the wall or just free standing shelves. But even the ones that need drilling will only require you to fill a few holes before leaving. Not a big deal at all, and allowed by most owners.

Contemporary Arteriors Home Worchester Gold Leaf Bookshelf Wall Art Another great way to make a rental feel like home is with wall art. Whether you use one piece of art, or design a gallery wall, you'll add instant personality and make your place feel more like home. Image from SF Girl by Bay Dining room design with wall art. Drapery Nothing can make a home, bought or rented, feel more comfortable and warm than drapery. I personally love sheer drapery because it's soft and flows beautifully. If you want a little more privacy, just double it up. Image from Decor 8 Sheer drapery creates a whimsical bedroom design.
