Pictured above: Though not an actual rental home (way to lead a post with that title!), this image from the home at Little Green Notebook is the perfect example of what to do when you can't paint your walls because you rent: Go nuts with art and pattern play on furniture!
Don't want to do anything permanent because you're renting? Invest your money on sophisticated textiles, furniture that will move with you and lots of great bedding if this isn't your forever home. This rental bedroom spotted on Rambling Renovators.
Get quirky with accessories, details (want those dino bookends bad) and wall art collages, like this home spotted on At Home In Love.
Don't be afraid to find a place for your stuff! Pegboards can be a good way to make more space in a rental. This idea spotted on offbeat + inspired.
Rent and hate your fridge or own and can't afford to replace it right now? Do what the creative minds behind At Home In Love did and add some polka dots to your fridge to add some fun.
Storage can be substantial, stylish and temporary! Just look to this great towel ladder storage (which could also be used for magazines, jewelry and more) seen on love grows wild.
