Like any other apartment owner, I have a prospering list of possessions I would love to include in my apartment to make it feel more attractive and personal. I use the word prospering because as people, our interests are a working progress. 

Inherently, there is something gladdening about walking into your home and feeling like it has a favorable impression of who you are, and what sparks excitement within you as a person. Design aesthetics are essential. That is, in addition to wanting things to look conducive enough to accommodate guests after a night out or for a TV Show watch party you're hosting. 

If you're looking to minimal ways to update detailing in your apartment, here are six things I recently added to mine to help stir you in the right direction. 

1. The Dell XPS

Truth be told, the first laptop I ever owned was from Dell. A few years later after a series of trial and error with a few tech brands, here I am with the DELL XPS 27 All-in-One. Specifically designed for providing amusement and entertainment, it is more than sound to say that the product is well worth the investment for the home. With a 4k display, Infinity Edge screen, and two fully advanced speakers, Netflix and Spotify have been go to favorites for close knit dance parties and movie nights. The feature of the touch screen on the desktop is also very convenient and amusing. It always seems to be the surprise factor for other people when put to use, and the reaction alone justifies the procuring of the system. In many respects for me, the Dell XPS represents excellent quality and technique. 

2. Coffee Table Books

For years, adorning spaces with coffee table books has proven to be one of the biggest interior design trends and it's not going anywhere anytime soon. The coffee table books to utilize in your space should reflect your interests, curiosities and passions. Reference the menswear books for me, for example. It comes in handy when you have guests over asking about the books - that way, it's easy to discuss or reference. 

3. Ezihom Clothing Hangers

Switch out your plastic hangers for coordinated luxury wooden hangers with great polish. They add an element of refinement, cleanliness, and organization to your closet. 

4. Faux Fur Rug

A faux fur rug is definitely not something you have to have in your home but if it aligns with your taste, instant glamour is added to your space. Everything will appear to be much more attractive and exciting in quality.

5. Scented Candles

I am very particular about smell everywhere I go. It's one of the first things people notice no matter what they're engaging in so make it a good one.
