Creative Dining for Scranton Pa. Apartments

For Monday I’m exploring some creative dining spaces for Scranton Pa. Apartments.  Or any apartments of course! These ideas are infused with color. They add brightness and show a unique spirit when living in Scranton Pa.

The chairs and table above, all different and of different colors, add a youthful feel, yet are very adult. Getting chairs at yard sales and flea markets and different paint colors make this an easy and spirited apartment dining space idea.

Going deep and fabulous! In this unique pink for your Scranton Pa. apartments.

Mean and green and ultra modern…green, gray and white add a soothing touch to your Scranton Pa. apartments.

Blue and orange statements give a lovely feel to this grand living space. Love to see that glass top tables are making a come-back!

This is considered a Christmas table via Dining Room Design, but I love the color choices here for other occasions as well.

A Peach Apartment

There’s something about a peach apartment. Nothing says more of elegance, warmth and romance than a lovely warm peach shade of color to highlight your Wilkes-Barre apartment’s decor. Consider this color when looking for a change in overall feeling to your new place, or your old one. Here, I love the contrasting colors of rust and olive green to balance the peach toned walls. White accents and dark wood always work. Image via Food and Home.

Living in Your Wilkes-Barre Apartment

When you are living in your Wilkes-Barre apartment, you are living in a city immersed in Pennsylvania history. This article will give an overview of this lovely city of Luzerne County in Northeastern Pa. for those considering moving here or renting an apartment near-by.

The city of Wilkes-Barre was originally settled in 1769. It is named after its two founders, John Wilkes and Isaac Barre (1806) and from what I gather is the only hyphenated city in the USA. (Just a bit of trivia there!) The city was mainly an industrial anthracite coal town in the late 1800s and early 1900s where it saw a boom in economic wealth during this time. By the 1950s the coal industry had dried up, but the city continued on, though it suffered some bump and bruises along the way. (Agnes flood of 1972 I’m thinking of).

The city has recently been renovated and is quite beautiful. From your Wilkes-Barre apartment you will experience a diverse and dynamic amount of things to do and see. A short drive or walk downtown will take you to a hub of businesses and entertainment.

Recently the R/C Theaters Wilkes-Barre 14 opened on North Hampton Street, along with renovation of the city blocks around it. The $31 million project welcomes over 10,000 visitors each week. Around the corner on Main Street nestled among other shops and stores is a new Barnes & Noble bookstore and cafe. Further along in the city square sits The F. M. Kirby Center for the Performing Arts, a majestic theater that hosts concerts, plays, and performances by the Northeastern Pennsylvania Philharmonic.

From your Wilkes-Barre  apartment you can visit the lovely historic district of town, where the large houses and mansions of the past still stand beautifully renovated. This neighborhood is located near two great colleges, Wilkes University and King’s College. Many of these incredible homes are now used by the colleges or house business offices. Some remain residential homes or apartments.

If art is your thing, you can venture out of your Wilkes-Barre apartment to visit the  Wilkes Sordoni Art Gallery, part of the Wilkes University community. The gallery is open daily, regularly has new features, and is free to the public.

If you have children, your Wilkes-Barre apartment may be close to one of the many nice schools in the area’s school district. Two of the three high schools in the district were listed on US News and World Reports Best High Schools list. Private schools and Catholic schools are nearby also.

The city is nestled next to the Susquehanna River and on a day when you want to get out of your Wilkes-Barre apartment and exercise the River Common walking trail is just the ticket. This paved trail leads along the river’s banks, goes through parks and recreation areas, and is a fun and energetic time where you can walk, run, or bike and see the beauty of the valley.

Within a fifteen to thirty minute drive you will find more shopping opportunities in Wilkes-Barre Township where the Wyoming Valley Mall and the Arena Hub shopping centers are located. The Mohegan Sun Arena, the areas largest in-door stadium, features the local Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins hockey team games as well as world-wide concert tours and shows. The Mohegan Sun Casino is a short drive away for gambling and “night-out” fun from your Wilkes-Barre apartment.

Blue and Pink Decor

Dare we be so bold?  Why not step up your apartment’s vibe, or lack there-of, and try some less traditional color choices. I’m a true lover of pink decor, when it’s done right, and blue with it adds a brilliant contrast. Love the retro feel in the photo above.  (All photos in this post via Apartment Therapy.)

Pink wallpaper…with a blue touch, so simple, so lovely.

Raspberry Splash

Who’s afraid of a little raspberry pink in their apartment? Okay, so maybe you answered “me!” but consider some of the subtle touches (yes, I said “subtle” even though it’s considered an outstanding color) that can be applied to your living space. Or just enjoy the idea of it…like I do. My house is totally ivory on white with shades of brown and chartreuse. How I would love to create a new space with a touch of raspberry! Love this raspberry velvet chair itself. The wall I could perhaps do without. Too Pepdol Bismal for me. Image via Decor Pad.

Small Apartment Designs

A small apartment need not lack sophistication and elegance. If you live alone in a tinier space making it warm and inviting for yourself is of great importance. The key is to keep a small space clutter free, which can be hard with little storage space, but if you can find a way it will be worth it. Stick to soft light color schemes to keep your small space fresh and bright. Here are a few more ideas to consider. Enjoy.

A small loft space can be divided easily by using storage as the “wall.” High free standing book shelves like these are ideal and placing a bedroom dresser next to it gives you the bedroom storage that you need for essentials. Love the clean, fresh feel this space brings. And everything is organized and accessible.

A small kitchen doesn’t have to be a downer as you can see here. A back-splash of bright color bring it to life. Again, keeping counter space neat and clutter-free sets off this small space.

A white color scheme works great in a small space. Contrast with dark furniture and a small carpet, and remember to add a splash of bright color somewhere, as we see here with the flower arrangements.

I find small apartments cozy and fun. They are certainly not the place for over-stuffed furniture, as comfy as that might be. We experienced a problem not too long ago finding furniture for a small room like this one. The living rooms tend to run big sized lately, so we settled on a similar look as this. It kept the room fresh and alive and easy to walk around in.

Ralph Lauren Paint

I love Ralph Lauren paint. It wears well and comes in so many colors and design options. Love to Know Interior Design has this awesome article with helpful info and resources on how to use Ralph Lauren paints.

Meanwhile, here I’ve found some really creative decor pictures of Ralph Lauren paint in action.

Walls: Big Sur Blue  Trim: Deckhand White

Suede paint

Dark Navy wall. (hint: Always use a satin finish on dark wall. The shine will bring light into a dark walled space, and matte finishes in dark often powder up when the surface is touched, ruining the neat finish.)
