Wallet-Friendly Ways to Revamp and Rejuvenate Your Rental’s Decor

June 22, 2016 4:01 pm

Regardless of how on-trend your decor was when you initially adorned your apartment, it's only a matter of time before you feel like your surroundings are outdated. But when a home makeover isn't really in the budget, you might feel stuck with the interior design you've got. You aren't, though. There are tons of budget-friendly approaches to decorating that can spruce up your apartment. Here are just three of them to get the creative juices flowing.

  1. Upcycle existing embellishments. If your home-decorating instincts take you to Amazon, let your money-saving instincts lead you to Pinterest instead this time. Look for DIY ways that you can revamp that old coffee table or update worn throw pillows. It might be as easy as picking up a can of spray paint or some ribbon and fabric glue.
  2. Frame free pieces of "artwork." You don't have to break the bank on a piece of art in order for it to add something to your room. Prints or photos from magazines and books can have just as great an impact on the aesthetic of your bedroom or living room as expensive artwork. Just find a cheap frame at Target or the thrift store to complement your makeshift work of art.
  3. Break out the sewing machine. If you're handy with a needle and thread, there's a lot you can do in your apartment without spending much money. For example, you can easily create new curtains or pillowcases. These are both simple ways to spiff up your apartment that conserve both time and money.

Try a New Kind of Fusion Burger at KoJa Kitchen

June 15, 2016 4:02 pm

Named for the Korean-Japanese cuisine crafted by its chefs, KoJa Kitchen doesn't do anything by the book. This fusion restaurant offers up an entirely new type of global fare invented right here. KoJa's version of a simple sandwich enlists Korean and Japanese ingredients for flavor, plus "buns" made out of crispy garlic rice instead of bread. It's the same creation that made KoJa Kitchen's predecessor, a food truck, such a hit.

Head to the eatery to try the short rib KoJa "burger," packed with Korean barbecue short ribs and lettuce drizzled with sesame vinaigrette, katsu aioli, and sesame seeds. Or try the braised pork KoJa filled with meat dressed in a miso-coconut blend and wonton chips, masago, arugula, and garlic aioli. You can also enjoy your choice of meat as a bowl, sans the garlic rice "bun," or a taco or salad.
