Decor 101: Creating an office space in a small apartment

Decor 101 - 🇬🇧 Английский Язык

Moving apartments or houses has never inspired me much. However, there are times when you have to do that, and there’s no way around it. In exactly five weeks my husband and I will be moving into a new apartment complex, and even though the reality hasn’t quite sunk in yet I’m already feeling its inevitable approach. Yet, this doesn’t seem to scare me a bit. In fact, I have been rather enthused about the possibility of decorating our apartment, as it will be completely unfurnished.

One of the challenges I have always experienced when decorating is that I am not in any way an interior designer. A simple question like, “What is your favorite color?” puzzles me because I don’t think I will ever be able to decide what color exactly I would want and why. Reading through a number of articles I have noticed one theme that is essential in decorating and then I realized why I do not yet possess it (as with any skill, I believe, this, too, can be developed to some extent). The overarching theme I’m talking about is attention to details.

Have you ever heard anybody speaking of themselves as a “visionary?” Or a person of the “big picture?” I’ve always prided myself in the fact that this is in fact me: I can dream things ahead and can cast vision and develop a strategy to achieve this vision (none of the Manilov’s sweet dreaming). Yet whenever I am faced with the daunting task of being careful to details I usually mess up and feel like my patience has run its course…
Going back to our future apartment: it’s a one-bedroom apartment (one living room and one bedroom, so two-room apartment in Ukrainian terminology) with absolutely no furniture except the kitchen. Moving from a three-bedroom house where we used our space frivolously into a one-bedroom where we will have to fit an office, a dining room, a living room, and a bedroom, make it look open and get rid of the clutter definitely poses a challenge.

In the course of the next months I will be posting some entries about my meager attempts at making a home out of a “white box.”(all of the entries will be coded as “Decor 101,” so take heed). I will also attach my picture to these posts so you know that I’m writing about my own decorating experience.
Any advice on this matter is welcome and greatly treasured, trust me :) In the meantime, if you, like me, have tried to rummage your apartment in search for a quiet nook to make room for some office space, I trust you will find the following article helpful in a many ways. Feel free to look through the ideas and then get back and share what you liked best.

Decor 101: The Housewarming party

Decor 101: Creating an office space in a small apartment

For the majority of American families moving houses happens much more frequently than for Ukrainian or Russian families. A relocation is usually associated with a different stage in life. For instance, eager to enjoy their independence, young adults move in pursuit of education (or perhaps just the fun student life), new career opportunities, and marriage. On the contrary, senior citizens choose relocation as a way of coping with their “empty nest” feeling once the children are gone or in an attempt to improve their health (in this case they follow their doctor’s advice to move into a warmer climate).

Even though a relocation inevitably brings a lot of hassle into people’s steady lifestyles, it can easily inspire people with a multitude of decorating ideas on how to make a new cozy home out of yet another “empty box.” In hope to participate in this significant event, friends and family can sometimes initiate a “housewarming party” for those getting ready to move. Generally, a housewarming party is held within 60 days of relocating in a new residence. The term was coined from a tradition of bringing firewood as gifts for new home-owners back in the days when central heating was rare. Firewood provided warmth and additionally was believed to protect the new house from the evil spirits, hence the term “housewarming.”

Nowadays the origins of the term are long-forgotten, but the tradition still remains, perhaps, slightly modified and modernized. To make the purchasing of gifts easier, the new home-owners enter all items they need into a registry at one of the larger stores websites (see target website as an example). Prior to shopping the guests can go online and enter the registry number to see what’s available and what’s already been purchased. The database is constantly updated whenever somebody buys an item, thus it is very unlikely for people to end up with the same two items. People may continue celebrating their move over the first three months after relocation.

Decor 101: Yard sale/Garage sale

Decor 101: The Housewarming party

Garage sales (or yard sales) have been an integral part of American culture since the 1960s. Generally, a yard sale is put together in spring when a family takes on a project of cleaning up their house (or garage) of the items they don’t need. The venue for the yard sale can be one’s front- or backyard, a carport, or a garage. The articles sold at such sales are mostly kitchen utensils, mismatched furniture, used toys, board games, random knickknacks, and clothing. Yard sales are the ultimate destination for aspiring decorators, students, newly-weds, and anybody working on a limited budget.
Nowadays garage sales are becoming a thing of the past as more people prefer selling their unwanted household items online using craigslist, ebay, and amazon to conduct their sales. Relocating to another place has prompted me and my husband to check out craigslist and some yard-sales as well. So far, not only have we found great deals on household essentials, but we have met a number of interesting people that we didn’t know lived in this small town! We will still be looking for great deals online, and hope to find more bargains to put into our apartment. Truly, “one man’s junk is another man’s treasure.” Stay connected for more posts on the treasures we’ve found so far :)
