How to Decorate When Renting: By the Numbers

I always recommend to my decorating clients, to make a big change, with the smallest investment, you paint. Paint the walls, paint the trim and paint the cupboards. 

But, in a rental you can't do that. You're prohibited from painting or renovating in any way. So what's a renter to do that want's a stylish place with some personal flair?

First, here's the list: (Photos to follow)

  1. Use Removable wallpaper  
  2. Add Wall Decals 
  3. Use Moveable Storage
  4. Create a Distinct Entryway
  5. Decorate with Mirrors
  6. Personalize with Drawer liners
  7. Make a Framed Chalkboard
  8. Buy Statement furniture
  9. Decorate with Indoor Trees
  10. Buy a Conversation Piece
  11. Add Ambiance with Faux fireplace
  12. Hang Pictures on a Wire
