How Can I Bring Life To My New Rental?

Good Questions

Q: My boyfriend and I just got our first rental apartment together. I love the high ceilings. But my boyfriend's things (DJ Speakers/desk on oposite sides of the couch) are driving me crazy. I need to make something of this. I'm allowed to hang things on the walls, but no painting at all. I've printed some pictures and I was thinking of putting them in colorful frames with diferent sizes. I'm stuck with a navy carpet as well. Can somebody please suggest some cheap decoration tips? I don't mind crafting… I just want some help! Thanks
