We love the fall season at Arcadia Run and it is quickly approaching here in Manassas, VA! When the seasons change, so do your home needs. If you want your new apartment home to reflect the season, with just the right amount of your personal style, here are some easy tips to make your apartment cozy and warm this fall!
Add layers – Just like you will be adding layers of clothing to your wardrobe for chillier months, you can layer your apartment too! Add comfy area rugs, blankets, and pillows to keep your apartment warm and inviting.
Rethink your colors – If you want some trendy ideas for fall, take a look at Pantone’s Fall 2015 colors to use for room accents, like a blanket or a vase. If you’re feeling extra ambitious, repaint a piece of old furniture to add more color to the apartment.
Seasonal décor – You can never go wrong with the classic autumn décor, like pumpkins, fall foliage, and a wreath for the front door. You can go as big or as subtle as you want with these fall inspired details.
Cover it up – If you have any wooden seating in your home, consider a slipcover or seat cushion to add a little more comfort. Slipcovers can also add an instant color makeover to any couch or chair!
Replace scents – Gone are the days when your air fresheners, hand soaps, and candles smell like a fruity cocktail or the ocean breeze. Replace the scents in your home with pumpkin, spice, and everything nice!
Flowers – Bringing in seasonal fresh flowers can brighten up any room. To add a little twist, put dried flowers in a vase for a rustic feel.
Frame your summer memories – With the warm weather on the outs, you will most likely be spending more time inside. Print out your favorite summer photos and place them in frames around your apartment.
As any renter knows, decorating a new apartment can be tricky, especially when trying to avoid damage to the walls. Luckily, tenants have so many more options these days – the possibilities are endless!
Additional shelving is one of the biggest needs for renters. And what better space to utilize than an open wall? Instead of installing shelves directly to the wall (which is a tricky process), opt for a stand-alone shelving unit instead. These can provide even more surfaces for your belongings and are available in various styles. Not to mention, they are much easier to manage when rearranging your living space!
If you’d like to take advantage of wall space on a smaller scale, temporary hooks may be your answer. They can be easily mounted and removed, giving you flexibility when styling your walls. With several sizes and colors, temporary hooks are ideal for everything from hanging a painting to holding your keys.
Wall putty isn’t just for teachers anymore! Once a difficult product to come by, putty is now a convenient way to hang prints and posters on any wall – without damaging the paint or drywall.
Wall decorations have certainly come a long way! These days, renters can find elaborate wall stickers – in various styles, patterns and colors – at any home décor store. They can be applied to empty wall space and easily removed if need be. These temporary self-adhesive designs are ideal to brighten up and personalize any space.
With these helpful tips, we’re confident your new luxury apartment at Arcadia Run will be beautifully styled to your tastes!
Still looking for that perfect space? Phase II at Arcadia Run is now available for leasing. With even more stunning models to choose from, our tenants will have to get used to living in one of the greatest new apartment communities in Manassas, Virginia!
