4 Tips To Decorate Your Luxury Apartment For The Fall
It’s time to pack up that summer themed décor
and embrace design that comes with autumn. Prepping your luxury apartment for a
fall transition doesn’t take much but it will impress anyone who enters your
door! When the fall arrives, a plethora of oranges, yellows and reds begin to
change the outdoor scenery and you should bring those colors into your space.
Consider these tips to intensify your luxury apartment and ‘awe’ guests:
- Entryway – The first space in your apartment you want to tackle is the entry way.
Creating the best seasonal ambiance can easily be done by updating a few key
things right at the door. Choose a high-end runner rug that can flow into your
apartment. Look for a rug that has warm, fall colors and a simple, elegant
design. This will immediately transport the autumn flow into the place you call
home. If you have a display table near the front door, put seasonal items on it
like pumpkins, decorative leaves and miniature, natural wreaths (you can
typically find them at craft stores).
room – Now that you have decorated the entryway,
you want to continue the autumn theme into your main living space. Invest in
throw pillows that bring the colors of fall into your space and pull out some
fleece blankets that can easily be grabbed on a chilly North
Jersey night. To keep your luxury apartment
cozy, strategically place these items on furniture such as couches, but have
them on display in an orderly manner to create that manicured yet ‘comfy’ look.
Additionally, utilize the space provided by coffee tables and end tables. You
can find unique and versatile drink coasters that have autumn designs – this
will tie the space together even more.
- Bedroom – Changing up the feel in your bedroom can be as easy as changing the
bedding! When replacing the bedding, look for fall themed comforters, sheets
and pillowcases. The look itself will make your bedroom a warm and relaxing
space. Add another sense into the mix and light some candles that smell like

5 Tips to Go Green in Your Luxury Apartment
You don’t have to sacrifice the environment for
luxury living and making the switch to go green is easier than you think.
Owning a luxury apartment comes with many benefits, you get beautiful designs,
gorgeous amenities and prime locations…and turning your pad into an ecofriendly
place is simple! Check out these five tips that will save you money and help
- Switch all the lighting in your luxury apartment to
CFL (compact fluorescent light) bulbs and throw away the impractical
incandescent bulbs. CFL technology uses significantly less wattage by producing
light instead of needing to convert the light into heat which is what incandescent
bulbs do. You can swap out the bulbs in a matter of minutes and you could
potentially start saving money on your electricity bill. Take for example a
traditional, incandescent 60 watt light bulb – replacing that bulb with an
equivalently bright CFL bulb cuts the wattage to 14! CFL bulbs also have a
longer life compared to traditional light bulbs, so with that in effect, you
also reduce the need to purchase them again.
- Turning off the thermostat and opening the windows
cuts down the amount of energy your HVAC system must use. This simple task
helps the environment and can help reduce the costs of heating and cooling. For
example, during the fall, Luxury
apartments in NJ can take advantage of
this simple switch because of the drop in temperature. Not only do the cooler temps bring more
comfort, but they typically last for months. You have the potential of having
fresh air enter your apartment for months!
- Swap out some appliances with “Energy Star”
certified appliances. Depending on what you already have around your apartment,
switching can be easy and inexpensive. Take for example a microwave that is 5
years old, it may be “Energy Star” certified, but in today’s market, newer
appliances with even better ratings are
- Wash your laundry with cold water instead of hot.
Did you know about 80% of the energy used with hot water could be conserved if
you make the switch? When doing so, you can also find laundry detergents that
are specifically designed for cold water applications, meaning they will
perform a wash just as well as hot water.
- Unplug unused electronics like DVD players,
computers and all other neighboring electronic accessories. These devices will
continue to suck up energy even if they are not being used, so while you are
away or just not using them, unplug.
These simple tips are just a few ways to convert
your place into an ecofriendly apartment. The next time you see your utility
bill, let it serve as a reminder to conserve energy and make the switch!
