Rental Decorating

I always wonder if anyone hires interior designers to decorate their rental apartments and homes. I think it would be a worthwhile investment if you planned to spend some time in the house, especially if you focus on 'removable' decor.

I am currently moving out of home into a rental home. We have some leeway as we know the owners and were allowed to paint. However, we are still left with some fairly average looking walls that need some quick fixes to brighten up the rooms.

Some ideas...
Removable wall decals

Cheap Artwork (hung with rental-safe double sided tape of course)

Try a photograph collage

or paint a poem on a canvas
(Design by Catherine Ekstrom via Desire to Inspire)

Frame some of your favourite things...frame your favourite fabric...mirrors...cork tiles...wall hangings and carpets...frame some doilies...hang some baskets...or hats...or shoes...shelving with objects...frame old boardgames...paint something yourself...the list is endless!

Another option I am desperate to try out (especially after seeing the amazing wallpaper options during M6) is a removable wall fabric idea. Find the instructions by googling 'Fabric as wallpaper' or check out the Apartment Therapy instructions here.

  1. Over the last half a century, the lease to own market has become an important power in providing. By providing customers immediate ownership of product name family and automobile products for a small regular transaction with neither a credit assessment nor a down transaction, lease to own choices have a powerful attraction for individuals whose needs are short-term, for individuals of low earnings and for those who are in financial problems.
