Real Life Decorating Ideas From Our House Apartment Therapy

→ Plants Are the Most Important Decorating Tool You’re Not Using

Like spray paint, all the temporary adhesive products on the market these days are a great way to customize inexpensive pieces or give new life to something you already own. Hate your backsplash? Cover it in just hours with peel and stick tiles. Add some privacy to your living room or bathroom, customize your favorite IKEA item, or completely rig your kitchen to store more with Command hooks. And don’t even get us started on temporary adhesive wallpaper.

Above, Jove’s dining room walls are covered in pages from art books. The art is displayed in chronological order, so it starts on one side with primitive cave drawings and concludes with modern art.

Apartment Therapy house tours are a treasure trove of inspiration and decorating ideas. They are real-life examples of what people do with their spaces—often without a lot of money, but with tons of creativity. Here are some of our favorites from years past….

A white bulletin board in Jennifer’s dining room is a great backdrop for a rotating gallery of children’s art. Kids see their work displayed proudly and parents get inexpensive decor.

Theo painted a simple white line to frame his bed, instead of a headboard. You could also easily create a renter-friendly version of this with wide washi tape.

Real Life Decorating: Ideas From Our House Tours That Cost Next to Nothing

Claire and Luke solved two problems when they hung a guitar in their living room. Every day objects make for great art, and the wall is a good place for storage.

We all have big dreams when it comes to our living spaces, regardless of whether we rent or own our own place. But while we all like to think we’ll learn how to reupholster, or retile the bathroom, it’s often only the quickest and easiest projects we have the time, money, and skill for. That’s okay, and why these three things are our very best-est friends when it comes to decorating at home.

By painting one small wall a shocking pink, Bernadette made a huge statement in her all-white bathroom.

Who knew a $6 bottle could do so much? Armed with only a roll of painter’s tape and a can of spray paint, you can revamp your space in an afternoon. While it helps to have experience, it’s very hard to truly screw it up, which makes spray paint a great tool for just about anyone. Consider making over a piece of furniture, updating your upholstery, or giving your old white KitchenAid a fresh coat of bright color.

The wall above Catherine and Lionel’s bed is decorated with a quartet of scarves, none of which are framed. It still looks homey and colorful. Another idea to try is a similar installation with pieces of fabric that you have on hand and love (with the edges finished so things don’t get scraggly) or wallpaper scraps cut to size.

Plants especially are happening in a major way (just look at our house tours for proof). Along with cut flowers, they add color, shape and life to a room. They are also surprisingly versatile and—like artwork, furniture, and other decor—can be used to create a major statement (think staghorn ferns or birds of paradise plants), to fill an empty corner, or even as a last minute styling detail.
