Offering a prime location, The Civic at Frisco Square offers easy access to the North Dallas and Sam Rayburn Tollways. Just a 30-minute drive from the shopping, dining, and nightlife of downtown Dallas, our unique luxury apartments include a 60” TV with sound bar and offer several floor plans to choose from.
When you’ve finally moved into your new apartment, it’s time to think about how you’re going to incorporate style into it. There are many ways to achieve this, whether you incorporate the elements of several styles or adopt the colors and patterns of one particular style.
If you don’t consider yourself to be a fan of one style or another, you can express your personal preferences in certain aspects of your apartment.
The simple addition of paint can be enough to completely personalize your new space. A touch of sophistication can be added when you paint walls in one or more of the many neutral shades that are available. Neutral colors, because they are of a lighter shade, will also add the illusion of a larger space, which is ideal if your apartment is small.
If you want to take on a DIY project without going all out, consider wallpapering a small room like the bathroom. Small rooms allow you to go style crazy without the splurge.
One way to get luxury without high cost is to have an accent wall in your two-bedroom in Frisco. Cover just one wall of your bathroom with luxurious wallpaper, and add a fancy soap dispenser or wall sconces for added elegance.
What you put on your windows can also inject lots of style into your luxury apartment. For added structure and luxury, a set of fabric curtains can do the trick. However, you’ll also want functionality in your window coverings—a pull-down shade or vertical blinds can help you achieve this. The good news is that you can have the best of both worlds without breaking any style rules by combining curtains with blinds or shades.
If you are reluctant to change the paint color and don’t yet have the budget for new window treatments, you can still incorporate style by purchasing a colorful but inexpensive area rug. Take a look at your existing accessories (like couch pillows and vases) and shop for a rug that contains these colors. This will provide a sense of cohesiveness and communicate your awareness of the elements around you.
If the light fixtures in your new apartment are kind of boring, they can be replaced with something that reflects your style, as well as your lighting needs. Your ho-hum kitchen may only need a sparkly chandelier to completely transform it.
For added impact and needed lighting in work spaces, task lighting will point light to a specific spot while drawing the eye to items that are on the walls below.
Moving costs to Frisco Square Apartments can be expensive, as can new furniture. If you’ve been living with the same furniture for years but can’t or don’t want to buy new stuff, you can make it look new again with a single accessory: the slipcover.
Slipcovers come in many colors, patterns, and styles. Not only can they add instant style to your apartment, but they also protect furniture from everyday spills and wear.
There are many styles out there; from French to mid-century modern. Indeed, you can visit nearly any home decor store and purchase an entire bedroom or living room set in a particular style. However, you don’t necessarily have to do this; incorporating just a few elements from well-loved looks can be a great way to express your personal style.
If you’ve ever wanted a French country villa but are still saving up your money, you can get the look now by incorporating elements of casual and relaxing French country style. Not only is it timeless, but this style will transform your entire apartment into a peaceful escape.
French country furniture is typically hand-painted, which makes it even more unique. When shopping for pieces, look for roosters, fruit, and florals. Of course, if florals or poultry aren’t really your thing, you don’t have to buy them just to achieve the look. Instead, identify what you do like, and then look for these elements in the pieces you shop for.
Your one bedroom in Frisco should be decked out in neutral and warm colors. Muted earth tones like golden yellow and olive green will add color but in a more subtle and relaxing way. Find printed fabrics containing these colors, whether on their own as table and window coverings, or as part of your upholstery to complete the rustic look.
On windows, roman shades are usually recommended where the budget allows. For a more inexpensive option, long drapery that reaches the floor and which is in a solid color is very attractive. The addition of drapery with fringes and similar accents will add to the country feel of the French style.
With its fresh and fun artwork, practical use of color and space, and sleek lines, it’s no wonder that the mid-century modern style a la Mad Men is so coveted, but how do you get that look for your own apartment?
Antiques are a big part of this particular style. A few carefully chosen statement pieces made of real wood will be enough to tie everything together. Coffee or dining tables with tapered legs can add lots of flair. Another way to add style and color is to choose an antique sofa in a bright shade.
Mid-century modern is all about the marriage of boldness and creativity, so don’t be afraid to experiment. You can also mix mid-century with modern or bohemian pieces for an even more eclectic look.
Cocktails were a big part of mid-century life. A bar cart will put them within easy reach in Frisco Apartments. Consider adding vintage glasses, a shaker, and crystal bottles and stoppers to your cart to add to that Rat Pack atmosphere.
Finally, no mid-century modern apartment is complete without a space for conversation. Arranging pieces of furniture away from the television and toward each other will encourage talking instead of watching.
Another popular style is Mediterranean. Also rustic and comfortable, this style incorporates many natural elements.
To achieve Mediterranean style in your apartment, look to Spain, Italy, or South France for ideas. The good news about this style is that you don’t have to go with large, expensive pieces; accessories can do a lot to add interest.
Colors for the Mediterranean style echo those found in the outdoors, such as yellow, deep red, and orange. Light and dark shades of green along with lavender are also great hues associated with this style. However, you should ensure that any colors you use are muted and not overly bright.
A thrift or antique store can yield several rustic accessories, from metal candle holders and pots to pine furniture. Mismatched dining room chairs are also a hallmark of this style, as are terra cotta and mosaics. Mosaics can appear in every room of your apartment, whether in the bathroom tile or on decorative plates for the living and dining room.
Light is another great element of Mediterranean style, so leaving windows without coverings can be enough to adopt it. However, if this is not possible due to your privacy needs, adding drapery to a rented apartment in Frisco can offer Mediterranean softness and easiness.
Do you have a hobby? If so, why not incorporate it into your apartment’s decor? For example, if you love to sing, you can incorporate this into just about anything. Musical refrigerator magnets, wall hangings, and couch and bed pillows are just a few of your many options.
If you adore a particular era of music, you can further complement your style by incorporating accessories associated with that time period.
If you love to read, but don’t want to get rid of already-read books, you can re-purpose them. A small apartment with no room for a full-size Christmas tree is no problem when you create a book tree. Simply arrange books with large ones at the bottom, going increasingly smaller as you reach the top. You can turn each book to create “branches, “ and then wrap holiday lights around it, plug them in, and … voila! … your holiday decorating is done.
