To make your apartment at LATITUDE at River Landing feel more like home, you need to perfectly dial in your decor. Check out these five shops around Coralville to pick out the perfect items to reflect your creativity, taste in music, and excellent style.
Hit Up a Record Shop
Record stores offer a variety of ways to display your unique taste in tunes, which can give people a much greater understanding of your style and personality. Interest in the right band can also elevate your coolness factor leaps and bounds, even before you open your mouth. Record Collector in Iowa City is the perfect place to grab all the classics on vinyl. Everything from MF Doom to Elliott Smith to the latest from the Black Keys can be found at this cool shop. Grab some album frames from Amazon and hang your favorite records right on the wall, where everyone can see them.
Explore an Antique Store
Have a style that’s all your own? The Iowa City store Artifacts offers an eclectic mix of everything vintage to highlight your unique tastes. Head there to grab some hip designer furniture pieces, a few ancient books to offset your glossy textbooks, kitsch banana-shaped salt and pepper shakers, classic wall art, and so much more.
Drop By the Hawk Shop
Want to show off just how much of a Hawkeye you are? The University of Iowa Hawk Shop is the perfect place to load up on Hawkeye gear. Grab a banner, pennant, and flag for your wall, toss a couple of spirit pillows on your couch, and dry your dishes in style with a University of Iowa kitchen towel. There will be no arguing that you’re a proud Hawkeye!
Add Some Original Artwork
Do you possess a sophisticated taste when it comes to decorating your pad? Visit one of our area art galleries to pick out a piece or two of one-of-a-kind artwork, and support local artisans like those who rent studio space and sell their work at Taag Studios & Gallery in Iowa City. Iowa Artisans Gallery, also located in Iowa City, is a great option for pieces constructed from clay, fiber, glass, metal, and many other mediums. Original, one-of-a-kind artwork is not only a great way to show your individuality, but it’s also an investment that may gain in value over time. Iowa Artisans Gallery also offers events and classes where you can create your own original artwork!
Whatever your decorating style, you’re sure to find an option near our 7th Street location that caters to your needs. Check out the LATITUDE at River Landing Neighborhood page to see what else is around.
