November's theme is a reader suggestion: Reversible Décor!
Our definition: all the things you do to make a rented space beautiful and workable without jeopardizing your security deposit.
Faced with your standard issue rental finishes (off-white walls, tacky fixtures, stark lighting, generic kitchen and bathroom cabinets, beige carpet, etc.) and an injunction against removing or radically altering anything, how do you make a rental into a *Home*? We're talking about removeable, creative solutions to the shortcomings of life under someone else's roof.
Let's kick this thing off with a list of rental woes and peeves, which will get all of our creative problem-solving juices flowing. And let's also hear and see all the ingenious, personalized, beautiful solutions out there! Send 'em to us here for posting, at sf (at) apartmenttherapy (dot) com.
