Creating a Chic Bedroom

Moving into a new apartment can be a life-changing experience…and when we’ve settled in we long to make our new space feel like home.  Our main sanctuary has always been the bedroom…and this room should not simply be the place where you let it all hang out, rumpled, tossed, and cluttered.  You can make your bedroom a real chic get-away with a few ideas I’ve found.

Keeping it simple is key to a comfortable space and this Newcastle Bed frame and nightstand are simple, elegant and chic.  Priced around $450 for both pieces at JC Penny.com.

Add more chic with the floor…

The shag rug is definitely still in style and a softly chic way to pamper your toes.  Consider placing one next to your bed for fun and comfort.  www.inmod.com

The simplicity of a glass lamp adds instant glamor and chic to your bedroom. I love these Eva Colored Glass table lamps I found at Pottery Barn for $99.00.

An easy touch to make a bedroom romantic and chic are votive candles.  A set of 8 of these scalloped votive glass candle holders add a nice expressive touch.  These can be found at Lamps Plus.

I love the simplicity of this bedding…White always looks fresh and clean, and can be highlighted with soft colors for added chic.  Here: Harbor House Dots coverlette and shams I found at The Home Decorating Company.

The final tip for making your new bedroom space chic is to de-clutter your bedroom!  Always make your bed, like your mother said. It really does make a difference to come home to a neat and smooth welcoming space.  Keep side table objects to a minimum. Use the drawers of nightstand for books and incidentals.  Keeping your bedroom neat and the floor space free from unnecessary objects is the best way to add chic-ness to the bedroom of your new apartment.

The Art-full Carpet

I’ve been coming across more and more designers using carpets that make a statement, the more unusual the better….and I call these carpets art carpets.  Consider one of these unique creations to spice up your Allentown apartment living room.

Love this area rug.  Using an area carpet to cover cold hardwood floors can be more than just a way for your tired feet to feel comfy, it can actually work as a piece of art and totally reinvent the living space in your Allentown apartment.

The two designs above, and the one below can be found at Locoav.

And why not try out more funky designs to make your Allentown apartment an expression of your personality.

Love this one from The Funky Rug Shop.

Cozy and softly colored new art damask rug from RugsCentre.

Add color and fun to your Allentown apartment entrance way or hallways with one of these carpet runners.

Or add stylish flare with a rug like this one; area rug by Surya found at
Rug Studio.

Adding art-full designs to the floors of your Allentown apartment is an easy way to express your creativity and give your living space a spark of interest.  Area rugs give you many options to show your new apartment style.
