I have had one big style crush on Boston-based design firm Bierly & Drake for as long as I can remember. They have such a sophisticated aesthetic that somehow still looks youthful and fun. They embrace traditional elements from the past with a modern twist. It is easy to see why they have won countless awards and have been featured in millions of publications...
Beautiful stylish rooms!

For Monday I’m exploring some creative dining spaces for Scranton Pa. Apartments. Or any apartments of course! These ideas are infused with color. They add brightness and show a unique spirit when living in Scranton Pa.
The chairs and table above, all different and of different colors, add a youthful feel, yet are very adult. Getting chairs at yard sales and flea markets and different paint colors make this an easy and spirited apartment dining space idea.

Your new Scranton Pa. apartment can be refreshing and lovely by selecting bright new color choices – like white and turquoise. It’s a daring move, I know, and not for the faint decorator’s heart.

The Shabby Chic style trend is growing even more popular, and when moving into one of the many lovely Scranton Pa. apartments, why not consider this soft, welcoming style when decorating your new place. The following are some lovely design ideas and options to make a Scranton Pa. apartment classic and comfortable.
The Scranton Pa. apartments lifestyle calls for a cool, comfortable and fresh style of life. Shabby Chic is all about creating an inviting space to sit down and tuck up your feet, sip some chai latte after your yoga class, have nice conversations with friends. I love the vintage shabby feel to this room. Soft, yet colorful.
Is it shabby or chic? The rustic feel of this room can be easily created in a Scranton Pa. apartment. Antique or flea market finds add strange appeal to an older space. Not a flower print person, yet find myself drawn to this room. To walk on those floorboards, to look out those windows…
A few simple touches can turn ordinary Scranton Pa. apartments into exotically styled spaces. Try a loose-fit slipcover over a chair to give a lived in comfy feel. An old door painted and speckled with vintage wallpaper makes a dull corner an interesting artistic expression. Totally chic – yet shabby!
Finally, with simple Shabby Chic touches added to your Scranton Pa. apartment, like these white curtains and the rooster ornament, ideas from an apartment in Manhattan, your new space can be elegant, chic and interesting.

Many landlords and renters of Wilkes Barre apartments are making the progressive decision of going green with eco-friendly home decor options. This is quickly becoming a more and more accessible option since many companies are selling building and home-decorating products that are organic and naturally based.
So, what actually makes a product green?
If you are considering repainting your Wilkes Barre apartment, usually the first step in redecorating, choose paints without harmful VOCs (volatile organic compounds). VOCs evaporate into the air and cause allergic reactions and irritating smells. Low or no-VOC paint products are now more affordable than ever. Dutch Boy is one company who makes them and is readily available at most local home improvement stores. Look for paints with the GreenGuard Certification.
New furniture for your Wilkes Barre apartment is the next going green choice to make. FSC Certified wood products guarantee that you are purchasing eco- friendly furniture. FSC products are sustainably produced. They are usually made from re-claimed or re-cycled materials (old furniture for example) or from woods or materials that replenish easily. Bamboo and rattan are two such materials.
What would your remodeled Wilkes Barre apartment be without new rugs? Green rugs and carpets are often made with natural plant fibers such as bamboo, jute or cotton. Synthetic rugs are made with nylon, rayon and polyester, all by-products of plastic and definitely not bio-degradable. It has been noted that a discarded area rug made of such fibers will sit in a land-fill for over 50 years!
Hopefully going green in your Wilkes Barre apartment will be and easy and enjoyable decorating endeavor.
