Decorating an apartment

Recently I shared about selling our home of 25 years and the transition from owning a home to downsizing to a smaller space.  I noticed that there were some very good blogs on remodeling a home and decorating larger rooms but very little about remodeling or decorating a condo with a patio as opposed to having a garden. A new world opens up when you move from a home to an apartment. First it's realizing that you have way to much stuff.

My search for blogs that offered decorating advice for apartment dwellers and condo owners brought me to some very good websites.

The first on the list of Apartment blogs is ApartmentTherapy  you will find a lot of good ideas from indoors to outdoors.

The DesignSponge offers DIY projects to make for apartment living.

There is a blog called TheTinyHouse website features small homes.

A patio can become a beautiful garden

FreshHome features apartment dwelling ideas and tips I like minimalist ideas :

"When most of us think of an apartment we automatically think of a small space often occupied in a city. Apartments are not necessarily small but they do require some additional consideration when it comes to providing enough storage solutions and furnishing the space. Whether just starting out after college or as an adult looking to change your surroundings, there are ways to make your apartment or condo more elegant and fresh. Apartment decorating can be challenging due to it’s limited nature and decorating is all about personal taste and expressing yourself through the design of your home."

Share your decorating ideas for condo's, apartments, condo's.


  1. I definitely agree that decorating your home can be challenging. But all it really takes is a creative mind especially if the apartment space is small.

  2. I love when we can find blogs that give great ideas. Thank you for sharing. Sometimes it is difficult to decorate a space. I know for me I have so many different ideas that it takes time to settle on one or try to combine some!
