As a designer, moving into rental was a bit of an adjustment, to say the least. I was limited in what upgrades I could bring into this new space, but with a little creativity, even the plainest space can be transformed into something that you love. I did have a blank slate to work with and that made things a bit easier. Here are some of the decor updates I did to make this new home feel like home, and you can try them too regardless if it is a rental home or your forever home.

Bring in some life with greenery
I definitely don’t have a green thumb but love some greenery around. It feels like it brings a room to life and adds another layer. I prefer real plants and chose tropical trees because of the low maintenance required.
