Sometimes it just takes one little thing to make your apartment stand out from the pack. Check out Apartment Therapy's tips for small things that have a lot of impact.
A unique paint job, like painting a wall one bold color or even in a unique pattern will make your home unique. Also, using multiples of one object makes it more interesting than using just one, whether it be rugs, tchokes or something else.
Go big by investing in a large statement piece that will really wow visitors. Spending a lot on one oversized piece of art or furniture often makes a bigger impact than a lot of smaller objects.
Bring the outdoors in with greenery to make your space look and feel fresh and calm. If you are afraid you'll kill household plants (or your room doesn't get enough light), use fresh cut flowers.
Just because an object is supposed to be one thing doesn't mean you can't use it for something else! Thinking creatively will help you come with decorations that are unusual and unique.
