this is not suzanne's abode, but we're going to poke our eyes out if we keep looking
at ugly decor to find a more relevant photo
...I've furnished it in my usual eclectic yard-sale minimalist style, which actually works, but the inherited decor is a challenge. Guests mostly enthuse over how cool the place is, but as the stepdaughter of a mouthy designer, I have a hard time remaining silent in the presence of such unused potential. The landlords, who are actually wonderful people notwithstanding their curious idea of what constitutes an appealing neutrality, are willing to let me paint a single wall an interesting color (they're off-white)! but that's about the limit, since they consider me a flight risk. Thanks!
How we sympathize, having been there, done that many, many times. We actually usually end up moving because we just can't stand it any longer (talk about flight risks). But we hope readers have some more sensible advice.
