Since we won’t live in our apartment for very long I wanted to renovate it to make it look more like a home but also without spending a lot of money.
After taking everything out of the room, I painted the walls in a cream/rose color. The shelves and the wine rack where the really cheap ones from Ikea. I painted them in the same color and to organize our stuff I put boxes into the shelves.
I find it looks better if all the “stuff” is in boxes, and the empty spaces I just for decoration.
The plant was from Ikea too. Plants and flowers make the living space so much nicer.
Instead of getting an expensive painting, I just got a cheap canvas and some paint and painted my own.
I put some candlelight holders onto the wall, which give the room a really nice atmosphere. Since our wall is a light color I chose the furniture in a dark brown. I wanted to add a color, so I got decoration like pillows, blankets, the boxes, parts of my picture(…) in turquoise.
Altogether I tried to keep it simple and cheap. Not just to make our next move easier, but also I don’t have to take care or clean so many things throughout the week.
I hope the pictures will give you some inspiration.
