Spruce Up Your One Greenway Apartment for Summer

Wish you could be outside all of the time during the summer? Here are a few tips to spruce up your apartment so you can get that summer feel inside and out.

Bring the outdoors in

It’s easy to add a few décor pieces that invoke the feeling of the outdoors. Try a low maintenance succulent plant, which doesn’t require much water or upkeep but still exudes an organic presence from your coffee table. Mementos of the ocean will help provide that beach oasis feel. Next time you hit the beach, collect some shells or sand to display in your apartment.

Use colorful dinnerware

Bright, colorful plates made from lightweight materials are a necessity for summer gatherings. They bring a pop of color to your apartment and are easy to transport, making it even easier to enjoy a meal outside on our beautiful Suite 1100 terrace.

Swap out your art for seasonal summer pieces

Swap out your dark art pieces for lighter options in shades of blue and white for a classic nautical theme. Add a new canvas depicting the Boston Harbor and the Seaport, the Charles River, or the beach so you can enjoy the view from the comfort of your apartment.

Add some summery scents

The smells of summer are just as important as the sights. Pick up a few candles in classic light and airy summertime scents such as clean cotton, sun & sand or ocean breeze to complement your summer apartment décor.

Feeling inspired to decorate? Be sure to check out the Greenway Open Market, an artisan market with handmade and local art, jewelry, ceramics, crafts, accessories, food, and more. The Open Market is held every Saturday and the 1st and 3rd Sunday of the month just a few steps from One Greenway along the Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy Greenway.
