Could you give me some ideas so I could decorate my apartment? Its small but cosy and I’d like to give it a new lease of life. What paint colours, added wall decorations, etc. should I use?

"Certainly! Here are some ideas for decorating your small and cozy apartment:

Light and bright paint colors: Consider using light and bright paint colors on your walls to make the space feel larger and more open. White, light grey, or pastel shades can work well.

Statement wall: Choose one wall in your apartment and create a statement by painting it a bold color, adding wallpaper, or creating a gallery wall with your favorite artwork.

Mirrors: Hang mirrors on your walls to reflect light and create the illusion of a larger space.

Plants: Bring some greenery into your apartment with potted plants or hanging planters. This can add some life and color to the space.

Textured accents: Consider adding some textured accents to your decor such as woven baskets, chunky knit blankets, or patterned throw pillows to add visual interest.

Multi-purpose furniture: Look for furniture pieces that serve multiple purposes, such as a storage ottoman or a coffee table with built-in storage.

Lighting: Add some variety to your lighting with floor lamps, table lamps, and string lights. This can create a cozy and inviting atmosphere.

Remember, it's important to choose decor and colors that you love and that make you feel comfortable in your space."

"New trend is the blue, but really wouldn’t suit if it’s small. I’d go with a light grey and glossy skirtings. If not lightest green shade you can find"

"White paint I say is the best, it will brighten up any place and make it feel more open than what it is."
