Decorate Your Apartment

Decorating an apartment can be difficult. Often, there are restrictions on what you can and can’t paint, changing hardware, and hanging things on the walls. This month the Liv Avenida Blog has a few apartment-friendly decorating tips for our residents to use. Make your Chandler, AZ apartment feel like home with the help of these tips this month.


Throw Pillows

Throw pillows are a fun and easy way to bring a little personality into the room. They come in all different shapes, sizes, patterns, and colors. Mix and match different colors and patterns for an eclectic look, or go with a nice, monochromatic scale of your favorite color for something simple and classic. Throw pillows also come with fun pictures, inspiring quotes, and even the portraits of famous historical figures on them.



Hang your favorite pictures from your last vacation, weekend out with friends, posters from your favorite movies, and prints of famous works of art on your walls. Hanging pictures up serves as a reminder of all the fun times you’ve had (and will have) and also works as a great conversation starter at your next dinner party. “You’ve been to the Grand Canyon? Me too!”



Plants are an easy way to brighten up any space. Grow your own herb garden for freshly seasoned food or, if you don’t have much of a green thumb, choose cacti and succulents to line your shelves. Freshly cut flowers and flower arrangements can also be a fun way to incorporate plants into your decor.



Nothing makes a small space feel bigger than a mirror. Use one large mirror to really open up your space or hang a collage of cute, vintage mirrors up for an eclectic and unique look.


Sticky tack or “poster tack” is an easy way to hang pictures up on your walls without damaging them. We recommend using sticky tack if you’d like to avoid putting too many holes in the walls.
