You are now the owner of a quaint, beautiful abode in New York City and you could not be more proud. In the midst of the bustle of the big city, you have a small slice of heaven that is going to be decorated exactly how you want it.
There’s only one problem though. In comparison to other homes, yours is a bit… shall we say, cozy!
As such, you’re at a bit of a loss as to how you’re going to style it. Don’t worry though! Where there’s a will, there’s a way. And NYLoft is going to present you with that way, six in fact!
1. Think Small
Ditch that long writing desk and once-beloved dining table for something a bit more practical, but small. Instead of a couch, add a love seat or better, have some floor arrangements. Instead of those long, bulky tables, opt for a small, round table with some mismatched chairs or minimalist-style chairs. Discuss your options with us.
2. Swap that Bed
Living alone? Switch that awkward, single bed for a day bed. There are plenty of designs available though we can make a custom bed for you as well. Just add some themed pillows, a lamp or two, maybe some foliage. You’re good to go!
3. Be Stingy, just a bit
Don’t stuff your small home with all sorts of furniture. Be a bit stingy and only choose the most essential pieces, like closets and wardrobes, beds, a book case perhaps. NYLoft has plenty of styles to choose form, so you shouldn’t have a problem finding some amazing choices.
4. Make Some Room
Choose contemporary, minimalist furniture instead of kitschy, cozy décor. Not only will this make your living space look clean and stylish, it’ll also open up a world of design choices.
5. Go Neutral
Beige, grey, black, brown – these are the most popular colors in home design, so you’ll find a lot of gorgeous styles in store. Mix, match, and add textures and subtle patterns, but don’t go overboard.
6. Spring Clean
You’ve got the furniture, you’ve got the décor, now’s the time to get some spring cleaning done. There’s nothing worse than awkward clutter stuffed alongside your intricate home décor pieces. Store the keepsakes, and throw those old report cards, projects and other knick-knacks away.
