Throws and cushions instantly add colour without having to do much at all, the simplest way to decorate your rental today! You can inject your own style or personality into room easily.

Attaching things to walls, safely

Using temporary hooks for wall art, high-quality wall decals, and suction products are honestly the best solution to safely attach items to your walls. We do recommend doing your research though, as some “cheaper knockoffs” may use lower quality glues that could leave marks or strip paint.

Add plants to create life and warmth

Plants will always be a fantastic solution to add personalisation to your rental property and add that feeling of life. There are a lot of indoor plants that are low maintenance and can thrive in filtered or low light, so you should have no problem finding the right one for that room.

Finding storage in unexpected places

Storage is something that all renters always have a problem with at some point. An important tip is to think outside of the box as any empty space could be a storage solution. In bathrooms, suction products are good for adding storage for toiletries. There are also trays and baskets that will slide easily under the bed for more storage.

White, white, and more white is the true colour that makes Scandinavian decor. White applies to everything in the room, floors, ceiling and, of course, walls. Starting with a simple base colour will allow you to add the accessories you need to make it feel like your home.

Staying true to this will also reflect on the artwork you hang on these walls. Typical Scandinavia art will have splashes of white or be in a white frame.

You will rarely see or install wall to wall carpet in a Scandinavia-inspired home. Natural elements, such as timber and stone, are the ideal textures of choice. When it comes to rugs, again a natural look is ideal such as wool or jute.

Statement pieces are key to this design. Scandinavian homes don’t often have a lot of furniture; they keep to statement designer pieces, and indeed, less is more.

When picking furniture, the key is choosing within the neutral grey and white colour palette and selecting furniture with a crisp clean line.

Although a high contrasting black and white room is not uncommon with Scandinavian decor, here is where you can add colour. Accessories need to be simple and not overpowering as colour is not often found in Scandinavian interiors. As we know, rules can always be broken, so if you choose to use colour, keep it to small bust within the room.
