Renters, can’t paint your rental? Need color? Need some style!? Just because you are renting doesn’t mean your rental is not your home, however temporary it may be. Your home should make you feel good and comfortable and reflect your sense of style, don’t let the limitations of a rental keep you from expressing yourself.

Removeable Wall Paper
I absolutely love color and bold patterns and I really, really, REALLY hate the fact I can’t paint my walls. Paint or wall paper can dramatically change the mood of a room and is a great alternative to hanging things all over the walls. Here are some great examples of removable wall paper, most of which can be used over and over again.

Frames, Mirrors & Plates:
Scour your local thrift stores, eBay, ( peoples curbside trash even! ) for frames, mirrors and plates. Get some spray paint and go to town! Don’t have any outdoor place to spray paint? Add panels of color behind photos or go for an all white or monochromatic look. Go crazy and mix elements of each! Arrange them in an interesting pattern for a wall full of character.
