When it comes to renting a home, it’s quite likely you’ll discover plain white walls, beige flooring and unflattering lighting, and when it comes furnished, it can be a challenge to personalise a space that’s filled with someone else’s stuff. But that shouldn’t stop you living in a bland box. Here are 10 ideas for a stylish, cosy home:
If you’d like to add colour and pattern to your walls but are worried about leaving marks, you still can with nifty 3M Command Strips, essential in any styling kit! Use it to hang picture frames and photographs without creating holes or damaging walls you can still achieve a stylish look.
Yes you can have wallpaper! Rejuvinate bland walls with wallpaper without getting out the paste. All you need to do is cover a sheet of MDF with your favourite wallpaper. Create one large feature wall or use three panels to make a work of art. Don’t underestimate the power of a cushion, or two, either they’ll wake up a sofa in a jiffy!
Decorate your space with real or faux flowers to add a friendly, colourful touch to your home. Either buy ready-set in resin or pick up lots of little vases and glasses from charity shops or car boot sales and fill with flowers to your heart’s content.
