Top 5 decor ideas for your Eastern Arizona college housing

apartments for rent

For most high school graduates, starting college is one of the most exciting times of their lives. Many are moving out on their own for the first time, some of them even to a new city or state. This can be a little scary, but one of the most fun parts is decorating a new space. Up until this point, the only place in your house where you had any say was likely your bedroom. The rest was probably designed based on what your parents’ tastes were. Now, in a new college apartment, you are in charge of decorating every part of the space from the bedroom to the living room to the kitchen, to the bathroom and beyond. If you are still on the fence about what kind of style you might want to have, here are a few ideas.

  1. Eclectic- If you have a lot of odds and ends, hand-me-down furniture and general love of thrifting or antiquing, this style is for you. It is one of the most cost effective because it utilizes used pieces and does not require a particular set of style rules. Instead, an eclectic style is about mixing pieces that generally do not seem to “go” together and using them to make a room feel charming and unpredictable.
  2. Global- If you are someone who likes to travel or who has traveled a lot, a global style is a great way to showcase this in your Safford apartment. Globes, vibrant prints, books and carvings make great accent pieces for this style. It is also a great way to utilize tapestries or scarves you got in different locations by hanging them on the wall as art.
  3. Minimalist- Minimalist style uses clean and simple lines, textures and decor. White, grey and light wood are popular for this style as are plants as decor and airy, spacious rooms with functional but few furniture pieces. This style goes especially well in bright apartments for rent with hardwood or concrete floors.
  4. Hygge- The Danish practice of hygge is all about being creating a cozy environment. Initially developed as a way to make it through brutal and cold winters, hygge is generally synonymous with comfort. Rich colors like wine, cognac, cream and pumpkin and heather grey are popular as are soft fabrics like wool, faux fur and luxe suede. Comfy, over-sized armchairs and plush pillows make good accents. If you have a fireplace in your apartment or live in a cold climate, the hygge style may be perfect for you.
  5. Tuscan- For more of a traditional vibe, especially for someone who likes to cook, Tuscan or Italian country styles are a good bet. This incorporates lots of beautiful lines, earthy colors and nods to food. Olive, mustard, cayenne and chocolate colors are ideal. It is also a great style if you want to display pretty dishes, bottles of infused olive oil or table settings.

There are many ways to decorate a home, just make sure that whatever you pick, feels authentic to you.
