Recently married with Johannes Huebl and a with the status of fashion maven, Olivia has a bunch of clever tips for decorating for two after you move in with your guy. Check ’em out.
1. Create a photo wall with your shared black-and-white images. Print a variety of shots in different shapes and sizes—family photos, landscape shots, architectural imagery—and frame them with simple, complementary frames.
2. Don’t leave any space untouched. Decorate shelves, tables, and other surfaces with unique objects that the two of you have collected over the years, from travels, flea markets, and more. What is important to remember is, if you like it, it works!
3. Create a cozy environment with scented candles. Strategically place candles in the living room, bedrooms, and bathrooms for a cozy feel. Incorporate scents like orange blossom and jasmine, which aren’t overly feminine.
4. Bring both of your personalities into the home with coffee-table books. Choose books that represent your interests, travels, and passions. You can even create your own photo books on Shutterfly that incorporate photos from your special events or trips for an added personal touch.
Did you have a hard time decorating when you and your guy moved in together?
“The apartment my husband and I first shared was so small (I moved into his studio!) that I was more concerned about fitting my shoes than creating a cozy vibe!” Olivia said.
