While your apartment here at the Junction Cottages & Townhomes is leagues above the old prison-inspired dorm rooms, the rooms can still feel impersonal here. Especially when it comes to the bare white walls of your bedroom. So if you’re tired of waking up and staring at blank walls, don’t worry, we understand.
The bad news is a no-go at The Junction, the good news is there is a ton of other ways to individualize and beautify your Junction apartment. Ways that are easy to apply and easy to remove. Just check out the following fantastic ways you can say no to white walls and yes to room beautification:
Say No to White Walls: Room Decorating Tips for Your Junction Apartment
- Tapestry. Tapestries have really come into vogue in recent years and consumers today have thousands of outstanding, affordable options to choose from. Whether you choose something comprised of weavings or more vintage fabrics, tapestries are artful pieces that really add color, pattern, and texture to any space. You can choose from thousands of designs at society6 or use your own favorite photos and have personalized tapestries printed out by Deny Designs. For best effects when hanging up, we recommend either stretching the whole tapestry over a wooden frame or at least securing the top leading edge on a long strip of plywood. This will give it a more polished look on your wall.
- Full curtains. Curtains are incredible pieces of home decor that often go underappreciated and underutilized. Curtains are an easy way to add a splash of color or a unique pattern to your room and actually look great offsetting bare white walls. You can also have fun with curtain rods, choosing between things like wooden rods or more industrial aluminum options. You might be surprised just how much new curtains can change the look and mood of a room.
- Removable wallpaper. Finally, if you absolutely hate the look of white walls but don’t want to deal with the mess of paint, then check out the many options available with removable wallpaper. Note that this is not your grandmother’s wallpaper. Businesses like Walls Need Love offer outstanding designs like this wave print that can really make your room pop.
- Removable hooks. Command Removable Hooks are your best friend. Seriously. You can pick up a ton of different types on Amazon or at Target and use them to hand photos or calendars, as well as fabric (see above tapestries!) and other creative uses.
Have Fun & Get Something That Makes You Smile
Honestly, our best tip for decorating your walls is to use things that make you smile.

Having images and designs that make you happy will go a long way in helping you settle into your new Junction Cottages & Townhomes apartments so that you can have a happier and more productive semester.
