Accessorizing an Apartment

One of my good friends from college just moved to Kansas City and I couldn’t be more thrilled.  She’s renting a really cute apartment near the Plaza and she has a good start on getting it furnished, but she needs a little help putting in the finishing touches.  Lexi’s a super cute, vibrant, young professional and I think her apartment should reflect that.  Here’s what it looks like now. 





One of the big things I thinks she needs are some accent pillows.  Here are a few that I think would look great.

Next she could add a tray to the coffee table and accessorize it with some flowers (faux or real), some books, coasters, and a couple cute candles.

Some artwork above the couch would bring in a lot of color and personality to the place.  We could buy some cute owl wall art, or we could make some DIY chevron art using teal and green paint.

I also think Lexi needs a few things for a landing strip.  She doesn’t have a lot of room for a table next to the couch but I think this one is narrow enough to fit, plus it will be a great place to drop stuff off when she walks in.  Wall hooks on the wall will provide a place to hang jackets and purses. 


Lexi needs a desk too, and this one is nice and simple.  I also love the citrus color of this chair and it would provide extra seating for guests. 


Curtains are another easy way to add a nice punch of texture and color. 


Finally, a colorful bowl with some rattan spheres would be a good centerpiece for the table, plus if she had guests over she could just rinse out the bowl and use it for snacks!
