It’s back to school time and university students are looking for affordable yet stylish places to call ‘home’ while away at school. Here is an example how Styled & Staged turned a tiny furnished studio apartment into a stylish retreat to study, sleep and enjoy some peace and quiet. The key to the success is using the same colour scheme throughout the entire space. BEFORE- These are the furnishings that Styled & Staged were given to work with from the land lord. Our job was to put Style into the apartment so it would be appealing for students to rent. The landlord wanted to show renters the full potential of the unit. AFTER – Being a basement apartment I chose colours that would add some warmth. I also had to keep in mind that the apartment could be rented to either a female or a male. Traditionally it has been rented to males in the past. I chose ivory, gray, black and gold as my colour palette with geometric shapes to keep it neutral yet appeal to the masses.
