How to Enhance Your DTLA Apartment

With a vibrant cultural scene, Downtown Los Angeles is a hotspot for creative, engaged living. Located in the heart of it all, Be DTLA by The Souferian Group has re-imagined urban apartment living, providing solace amid the city's action while remaining connected to all that Los Angeles’ urban core has to offer.

While it’s exciting to be in the city center's vitality, we all need to unplug sometimes. Here are a few tips for turning your DTLA apartment into an oasis:

Express Your Personality with Local Shopping

One of the many advantages of living in Downtown Los Angeles is the wealth of places to shop for curated goods. Grand Central Market, the Fashion District, ROW DTLA and The Bloc all offer tremendous opportunities for fashionable and accessible goods for yourself and your home. The unique local boutiques of the Echo Park, Silverlake, and Koreatown neighborhoods are also only a quick drive away.

DTLA is also home to many artists, from the well-known to the undiscovered, including its own Gallery Row in the Historic Core. Support the local art scene and express your style through their unique creations.

Cultivate a Sense of Style

A city-centered lifestyle calls for a unique sense of decor, striking a balance between welcoming and chic. Use these tips to make your new apartment shine with personality and flair:

Add Dimension and Light with Mirrors

Mirrors make the most of Southern California’s luminous skyline and year-round sunshine. To expand the feel of your space with a mirror, position it to reflect the light. Large mirrors will multiply the abundance of natural light found at the apartment homes at Be DTLA.

Use Attractive Storage Pieces as Furniture

Managing clutter starts with having a place for everything. With ample storage, your space can be a clutter-free and inviting haven. A vintage trunk or storage ottoman can elegantly furnish your apartment while adding to your storage capacity, and home bars, credenzas, and entry tables allow you to store your housewares and clutter within a statement-making piece.

Add Some Greenery

According to studies published by the National Institute of Health, indoor plants can reduce the psychological and physiological stress that many of us experience in our day-to-day lives. To improve your mood and add character to your apartment, visit the local plant shops in the DTLA Flower District to purchase an array of both exotic and easy-to-care-for plants.
