4 Tips & Tricks for Decorating in Contemporary Apartments

There's nothing like moving into a fresh, new space. It's so nice to have the ability to decorate your apartment to reflect your personal style. Once you know where you're moving, it's important to study the floor plan and decide how you want to arrange your new furniture. Once you get a feel for the space and the look you're going for, it's important to remember these four tips and tricks when it's time to decorate your modern Onion Creek apartment.


If you want to create a calm and serene environment in your home, you should incorporate lots of elements of nature. In a modern design, try including shades of blue, green and brown. Take a look at nature to get ideas for colors and accents to include. To maintain a modern, sleek look, keep your decor clean and minimalistic. Consider adding a few pieces that are clear or acrylic so they blend in with the background. Or, to jazz things up, find a large statement piece that can be a focal point on the wall.


It's important to decide what look you're going for when you move into an apartment, and texture can play a major role in creating different apartment styles. If you'd want to emphasize our apartment community's farmhouse design, you'll want to incorporate a lot of wooden textures and natural fibers. In the living room, store your comfortable blankets in an oversized rattan basket. Instead of purchasing a glass dining room table, it'd be more appropriate to purchase a wooden farmhouse table. After you’ve decided the look you want to achieve, consider using Houzz or Pinterest to browse different ways you can incorporate texture into your design through furniture, rugs, window treatments and more.

Use Mirrors Strategically

As you move into a place like our Onion Creek luxury apartments, you'll want to make sure that your space reflects the beauty and luxury of the community you live in. Part of what makes our units so special is our well thought out floorplans. Create the illusion of even more space by adding an accessory like an oversized mirror and strategically place your mirrors in areas that reflect the natural light in the room.

Personal Touches

Even though it's great to decorate a unit with the latest accessories, you'll still want to add your own personal touches. Family photos, your favorite piece of artwork and a sentimental collection of music are always nice to display.
