Built from the shell of an old navy shipyard in the ruins, in Philadelphia, the 100+ year old campus of Urban Outfitters has breathed creative life back into the once industrious building complex. Its décor is all about mixing Vintage with Contemporary!
5.Could you suggest a few a cost effective Decor tips for start-ups?
Start with what you have. Organizing is the Key. Do not put out all your knick-knacks and collections out at the same time. Instead store it and bring out only few pieces at a time and work a theme, this way the decor will pop instead of losing its significance in a crowded setup. Also you can change the scene of the space often without the decor getting monotonous/boring
Add a Mirror to old Window frame and instantly you could create a beautiful vintage piece that would cost a lot more when bought.
Add more greenery. Plants are the easiest and cheapest way to create a beautiful space. Adding colorful flowers will give an additional punch.
