Feng shui design is fun and exciting and can be incredibly transformative! Look what we’ve been up to — this is the living room in the charming St. Louis home of Laura.
Laura moved to her new home this spring and her home was a blank slate (well, with a little clutter tossed in)–and she was very open to allowing a BIG JUMP in energy for her home and her life–very BRAVE! Here are a few before pictures (previous owners) of her living room: Continue reading →

With more and more apartments now implementing a “no painting rule”, there’s no need to worry! You can still make your apartment look just as good without painting. We’re sharing 5 options to spruce up your walls that are temporary, easily removable, and don’t involve painting! As always, check with your landlord first.
Today is the first day of Spring and now is the perfect time to start some DIY projects to spruce up your apartment and kick your organization and spring cleaning into gear. We are so excited to be collaborating with a new local partner, Revel. Since they are experts at DIY crafts, we have asked them to do a guest blog for MPM this week.
We at Revel are thrilled to guest blog for Madison Property Management today! If you haven’t heard of Revel, we are a modern craft bar located just off the Capitol Square. It’s the perfect place to get together with friends to drink and DIY! We have a constantly changing list of workshops and drop-in Craft Bar projects, including everything from bar cart styling and beer glass etching to watercolor brush lettering and gold leaf painting.
One of the most popular projects on our Craft Bar menu is this customizable acrylic tray – perfect for entertaining or as a statement decor piece.
Just because you live in an apartment, or have a small space, doesn’t mean that you can’t make your space look great during the holidays. We’ve hit up Pinterest to give you the best holiday decorating ideas for your apartment or small space.
Let’s start with the tree…
Do you like real trees or faux trees? If you love real Christmas trees, check with your landlord first to make sure they are allowed in your building. Faux Christmas trees are a great alternative and although they may be a bit pricey at first, you can use them year after year, so you get your money’s worth. They even make pine scented ornaments now that will make your apartment smell like you have a real tree. Make sure you pick the right size tree to fit in your space. If you have a small space and don’t have much room for a tree, try a tabletop tree, or a half tree as shown below. You can still decorate them just like any other tree, but they don’t take up as much space as a regular sized tree. Don’t have space at all for a tree? There are several alternatives to choose from instead of a tree. Take advantage of your wall space and use lights to create your own tree. Use chalk on a dark wall or create a tree shape with wood pieces or branches on the wall as shown below. We also love the idea of using your books to create a tree against your wall. You could do this on the floor, on a shelf or even on a table.
