Patrick Stevens's Profile
|Display Name:||Patrick Stevens|
I've definitely taken some bold design risks with my apartment. Some have turned out great (cork-tiled wall), others not so good (Kermit green should be limited to an accent color), but part of the fun of design is taking risks. At the end of the day, if you love what you've done, that's all that really matters. And if it doesn't work out, at least you tried. Also, make sure you hang on to the receipts and know a store's return policy.

I agree, an articulated wall mount is probably your best bet. They're easy enough to install yourself, but you might want to consider a professional installation. Installers are insured, so if the TV falls off of the wall, they will generally cover the cost of a replacement.

I'm a big fan of using several different colors in one room to help transition from one space to another, but sometimes picking one muted shade throughout can make a disjointed space feel cohesive.

I've been both a slow decorator and a fast decorator depending on the circumstances. For my first apartment I was on a tight budget and had literally no furniture to start out with, so I needed all the essentials right away or I would have been sitting on boxes. Since my college days and 4 apartments later (I tend to nest in one space) I've definitely embraced the slow decorating pace.
