We just installed a fun model apartment in San Antonio. My goal in sharing this on today’s post is to show you the impact you can make in a small space by only changing the furnishings in a room.
There are some phases in life when we don’t have the luxury of painting the walls or adding architectural character to a room. An apartment is a prime example.
In this model apartment the paint and floor were very neutral which gave us an easy envelope to work with. One of the keys in decorating a model is for the prospective tenant to remember your property above the others. This is made easier on the tenant if they are able to say ”That property is the one that….”. We want our concept to stand out above the others.
To that goal we made some bold color and graphic pattern selections that should be quite memorable. Our color scheme is black, white and bold green with a lot of graphic patterns that pop.

So, some fun choices for the young, and young at heart, looking for apartment living. I would say the key lesson is that if you are not in a place to invest in defining the architectural character of your space don’t give up! Focus, instead, on how to create impact with a cohesive color scheme and style to make the greatest design impact.
Hope you have a wonderful weekend!
I feel so spot-on! We’ve been working to make our rooms and spaces as neutral as possible because of my insatiable love to play house. For a couple weeks now, as I’ve been removing anything remotely summery, I’ve brought in a few splashes of green. LOVE all your spaces….and the ways in which you are a minimalist but no where near to a fault. You have an extreme handle on just right. Love your blog!
Thank you Robin! You are too sweet. Sounds like your space is coming together great!
Love the before and afters! You make it look so easy, yet I know it is not!
Thank you Ken! That is really thoughtful. There are so many hours that go it into- not just being creative, but also packaging, transporting, assembling, etc. It is nice to know someone appreciates the time and effort it truly takes!
