Lighting and decor 101: Lighting is easily one of the most under appreciated but important elements in an apartment. Especially if you throw in antique or vintage lighting elements, which can really tie together a room. A vintage sconce light from restoration hardware, or a timeless chandelier can absolutely change a space. Floor lamps and table lamps are critical as well, like an overarching arc floor lamp with a marble base can take a living room and truly elevate the entire space. The best mid-century modern floor lamps? Definitely from West Elm. The best classic chandeliers and vintage lighting? Absolutely restoration hardware. Start with these two brands but stem out to others to perfectly polish your space. What decor might you be missing? Odds are you’re forgetting a killer mirror, throw pillows, wall art and other accent pieces. Floor mirrors are an essential element to any space, and particularly helpful in small spaces that need opening up. They don’t have to be over complicated, either. For example, the Ikea hovet mirror is an affordable floor mirror that’s absolutely classic, simple in design, and perfect for almost any space. Wall art is completely up to you and your decorating style, which is what makes it such a fun element in decorating your apartment. Don’t forget your flatware, and bar ware, especially if you’ve got a cool bar cart! Finally, don’t forget to play around with throw pillows. Whether its a velvet cushion from West Elm or a shag throw pillow from anthropologie, a few small home accessories can completely change your furniture and decorating style!
