You don’t have to be an interior designer to make your apartment fashionable and welcoming. A few simple updates will give your apartment a new look – and it won’t cost you a lot of time or money. Here are 20 ways to express your style and creativity in your space:

  1. Update a lampshade with paint. Use stencils or try them freehand.
  2. Give your small kitchen a modern look with black and white accessories.
  3. Find prints or old photos that you like and make them bigger for your walls.
  4. Mix up the dining room. Instead of matching table and chairs, mix it up by finding antique chairs in a variety of styles
  5. Use different variations of the same color to give your bedroom a modern and funky look.
  6. Gather small and large props in a group.
  7. Try to use photo rugs that are the same color as your wall.
  8. Put your artwork in an asymmetrical grouping.
  9. Add pom poms to a pillow.
