Ok so my house is by no means amazing but I thought I would share some pics of it in it’s current state. Greg and I rent a cute little townhouse and it is very important for me to feel at home where I live- regardless of ownership type. And hopefully some of what I have done can inspire you renters out there! While I don’t love everything about our space, I have tried to make it unique within the confines available to me. And we have been able to paint in our rental which has made a huge difference! Thanks landlord!
First up, our little entryway! I painted bright blue horizontal stripes on about a third of the wall and then did a simple black and white collage:
This was the hardest to get good photos of because of 1) lighting – there is no natural light and 2) space. But I love the chevron wall (which I free-handed so it is not perfect by any means) and the little details:
Our kitchen was recently remodeled by our landlord which was amazing. While I didn’t get to choose the design, it is great to have a nice new kitchen to cook in (ok I don’t really cook. But Greg does).
Entryway Table/Dining Area
We have this little wall enclave that I always wanted a long table to fit into and I finally made one (check our the DIY). Next to it we have our dining table in an area that feeds into the living room.

As you can see, we unfortunately do not have that great of lighting in our place (only two small windows really). That and having carpet instead of wood flooring are probably my biggest complaints. I do love our place even though looking at these photos made me want to redecorate for some reason.
I’ve also always been so conflicted about window treatments – I can never find ones that I love for some reason. If you have any suggestions please leave them in the comments!
