Knowing how to make your space your own is one of the best ways to truly love your space. Even if it feels perfect already, take a look at how you can improve the personalization of your space to reach maximum comfort and serenity in your student apartment in Columbia.

Know your colors

Before you can find the right supplies for your space, you need to know what colors you want to see more (and less!) of in your home. If you’re not sure, Pinterest can be your new best friend! Once you decide what color schemes you want to follow in your home, then you can move on to the fun stuff! Like…


If you are looking to add in some more color to your space, curtains can be a saving grace. Bright, bold curtains could be exactly what your space is missing to add in that pop of color you seek! If more color is not what you are looking for, try finding a neutral color in your space (white, beige, gray) and capitalize on it with those curtains! Make sure to know how much light you want to let in, or keep out, before deciding on your material type!


Accent pillows, as fun as they are, can be tricky! You want to incorporate enough color and design to brighten or bring together your space. Still, you don’t want to be “the pillow lady” with so many pillows that you can’t sit down. Similar to curtains, accent pillows can add in that pop of color you feel you are missing, or they can be a way to tone down your space if you feel it has too much going on.

Smart storage

Whether you are someone who keeps everything on display, or you like to keep things minimal and tidy, knowing how to keep things stored in your space is the key to personalizing it to perfection! Remember: shelving, storage tables, bins, and ottomans can be your best friend when it comes to keeping your space functional, while preventing clutter.

Area rugs

Finding the perfect rug for your space is like having a perfect hair day, only it’s every single day in your space! Again, this is one of those times that Pinterest can be your best friend when it comes to deciding what size, shape, and color of rug will fit perfectly in your space, and give it that “you” touch!
