With young professionals venturing into real estate, early in their career, majority of them are able to afford small studio apartments with one bedroom. Though studio apartments are small in space, there is no reason why they must be devoid of colour or art.

Mirrors: Mirrors have been traditionally used in interior decoration to enlarge a small space and to magnify light. Today most interior decorators for apartments opt for cabinets that have an exterior floor length mirror. This arrangement has a two-fold advantage. One gets to save on space on the wall where inspiring art or a bookshelf can be placed and the mirror on the cabinet gives a vision of a larger space. Large decorative mirrors placed on the wall are equivalent to art giving a sophisticated look to the space.
Large art pieces: Space is sacred in a studio apartment and optimum use of the wall space is called for where art is concerned. And instead of putting up small art pieces in one concentrated space, one large artistic painting or a vintage poster will make a focal point for the room setting the tone of the design.
Light: Lighting is the most important aspect of any space and with studio apartments; it becomes vital to have well-lit rooms. One interesting thing about lights is that it can be used as a decorative art and set as a focal point of a room. While most studio apartments have a multi-pronged approach to interiors, selecting the right lights for accent or track lighting is important to illuminate and they can also used art pieces to enhance the drama. Since most studio apartments have an open kitchen, once use a row of three pendant lights on the dining table to great effect.
Rugs: Colourful rugs are an integral part of studio apartment decor. They help to demarcate space and create cosy little nooks that help to establish the specific purpose of the space. Studio apartments that do not have much art or colour can go for colourful rugs to give personality to the space.
