Bold Colours

Most rental apartments in London ON come in that typical neutral colour – various shades of beige and white. This is your chance to push the boundaries of pattern and color without fussing with a paint brush. You can either go big with statement furniture or use different shades of colour throughout your accessories. In particular, area rugs, curtains, throw pillows and blankets are a great way to get in on the trend without a major commitment.

Accessorizing with Vintage finds

Using vintage accessories in your design allows you to give your designs a little something special and unique, a conversation piece and potential focal point. Try focusing on one era and style that ties in with your more modern pieces. Garage sale season is almost upon us!
