How to Pull Off Oversized Art Pieces

Being bold and decorating with a large piece of art shouldn’t require the services of a professional decorator. However, having a few apartment decorating tips to help you pull it off wouldn’t hurt. Here are three tips to help you make oversized art fit perfectly into your Fort Worth apartment.

  • Minimize everything else. In order for a dramatic piece of oversized art to work, it has to be allowed to take over the space. Keep everything else tame so the room isn’t too busy.
  • Keep it subtle. A big piece of art can be used to take up an entire wall without taking over when the piece features easy colors and soft art. It will blend in and provide a backdrop instead of a focal point.
  • Off the Wall. If large art is just too much on the wall, try leaning it against the wall or place it on a low bench. Experiment with off-the-wall locations to find just the right spot.

  • If you need more table space for a hobby such as sewing or crafts, purchase an expandable table. When not needed, fold up and put away in the closet till next time.
  • Small tables with casters can be easily moved from one room to another.
  • For dining, a small dinette set with fold down sides uses limited space.
  • Utilize bookcases for more than books. Place crafting supplies, photos, magazines, and DVDs and CDs on the shelves.
  • A bench seat is a great storage area. It not only serves as a place to sit, it will also hold blankets, quilts, winter sweaters and extra linens.
  • Incorporate a fold out sofa bed into the decor. Easy to open for sleeping and easy to close when not needed.

Improve Your Focus With the Right Scents

Aromatherapy can have a powerful effect on your home environment. Whether you’re creating a romantic mood with scented candles or adding pleasing fragrances to ease stress, specific aromas tantalize the senses.



Scents also work as a medium in creating an environment that supports and enhances a productive environment. This is especially important for people working at home or for students when studying.

Several scents to help improve your senses, so consider these:

  • Rosemary oil helps us think and react more quickly especially in stressful situations.
  • Lemon is extremely potent in its fragrance. It’s refreshing but be sure to establish how much to use as it can be overpowering.
  • Mint is a brain stimulator. Chewing gum or eating mints gives the brain a jump start in creativity.
  • Orange is bold and sassy.

Our Trinity Bluff community has plenty of options, features and amenities for every lifestyle, contact us today for more information on downtown Fort Worth, TX apartments.

No Time to Cook? How to Use Low-Effort Cooking

When you live in an outstanding community like Trinity Bluff, cooking in an apartment kitchen is a culinary treat. To get the maximum out of cooking in the most efficient and effortless way, try adding these appliances.

  • Microwaves have taken cooking to a whole other level. With the wide variety of pre-packaged meals ready to go, there’s no need to deprive yourself of a well-balanced meal.
  • Toaster ovens can prepare items from pizza and pastries to fluffy hot biscuits. It is every cook’s best friend.
  • Rice cookers are for a lot more than steaming rice. While the cooker makes the fluffiest rice in town, and quickly, you can also steam pasta for spaghetti, make mac and cheese, or steam fresh veggies like cabbage, fresh beans and cauliflower. It’s also great for steaming/poaching fresh fruit.
  • Crock pots can cook just about anything from whole chickens to a pot full of meat balls.
  • Electric frying pans are perfect for a quick meal in one pan versus firing up the stove.
