Keep your landlord happy and hang curtains without putting any holes in the wall plus other rental decorating ideas that are easy and inexpensive.
Hi there! If you are new here, welcome. My blog’s main focus is on rental friendly decorating ideas in global eclectic style!
If you’ve been around for awhile, you know we are in the middle of moving into a Japanese rental house. We are expecting to get our furniture shipment this week! This shipment has our office supplies, decor, and my beloved piano and music. While I’m
patiently waiting, I decided to do a little bit with what I do have.
Besides not being able to paint our rental, we are not allowed to put any holes in the wall apart from tiny little nails. Hanging curtains turned out to be an adventure. After I finally cave in and purchased Japanese pinch and pleat curtains for the existing curtain rods, I wanted to add more depth with layers in our master bedroom. I hung my sheers over the Japanese curtains by attaching our curtain rod brackets to velcro strips.
Four sets of curtains have successfully been hung in our house this way!! My heavier curtains fell down immediately so this solution only works for light cotton or sheers (or invest in more sturdy command strips!).
They are official our first wall art!
I found this large white fur rug (it’s about three times has big as in the picture) in a local shop for under $30! I think we might need fur in every room. It’s soooo soft. The kids and I make “fur angels” in it!
There is still a lot be done. If you caught my post last week, I shared an inspiration board for this room. While we wait for it to come together, seeing the ocean from our sliding doors every day is amazing.
In the mornings the little farm is full of local elementary students up-keeping the land. The school also plays classical music and traditional Japanese songs over the speakers all day. It really is something.
