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!
