We have readers that we hear from who are constantly moving (and renting homes/apartments), due to having military lifestyles, a spouse with a job that requires them to be in different states or countries for various amounts of time, or even just because they have chosen to rent their home in a perfect location/neighborhood, instead of buy or own at the moment.
These are both great options, because there’s no permanent damage to anything after you’re done; PLUS it helps set the stage for the rest of your decor, accents and colors. Obviously the wallpaper will have a lot more of a commanding presence, so take that into consideration when picking out the rest of your rooms items. Oversized mirrors will really help make your space appear larger, and also reflect anything else, design wise, going on in your space.
So I have to ask…
Are you a renter who has overcome the “renter’s rut” when it comes to decorating? Have you found a great way to customize or personalize your spaces, without adding paint, trim or changing much of anything… but simply adding MORE!?
I’d love to know if you have any tips or tricks to share with other fellow renters. I KNOW they would appreciate them!
