Apartment Friendly Decorating Ideas

It can be difficult to decide just how to decorate your apartment. You don’t want to buy all-new furniture and bedding, and you can’t paint. You want to hang pictures up on your walls, but you don’t want to hang too many things. We know; it’s really hard. That’s why this week the Rumney Flats Blog is bringing our Revere, MA residents five apartment-friendly ways to decorate.


Washi Tape

Washi tape is a great (and inexpensive!) way to decorate your apartment. Neutral colors and geometric shapes can “age up” this traditionally youthful look — or not! Washi tape comes in many different colors and patterns, so don’t be afraid to experiment to find a look that expresses you. 



Make your apartment feel like home with pictures of your friends, art prints, and posters from your favorite classic movies. Pictures are an easy way to personalize a space, and it’s always nice to be surrounded by reminders of the good times you’ve had with friends!


Colorful Curtains

Curtains are a fun and cozy way to add a splash of color to your walls without actually having to paint. Pick your favorite color, mix and match panels, and play with different pattern combinations for a unique look.



A nice rug can add a lot of warmth, color, and personality to a room. The right rug is the perfect finishing touch to a living room or den.



Plants can make a room come alive. The fresh greens add a pop of color and make the room feel fresher and more open. If you’re forgetful about watering your plants, buy succulents that don’t need as much water.


We hope that you’ve enjoyed our ideas! Feel free to try any of them this month. How have you decorated your apartment? Let us know in the comments!
