1. Start by decluttering. You don’t have to go all Marie Kondo, but a thorough cleanse of your belongings can be a beautiful therapeutic thing…and, it’s free!
2. Upgrade your lighting. Good lighting is probably the most transformative thing you can do in any house. There’s actually a lot you can do as a renter - simple things like getting better and brighter globes can do wonders, but consider switching out old lighting fixtures (make sure you keep them for when the rental period ends) with something fresh.
3. Wall to wall. Check first, but loads of landlords would be happy with a fresh lick of paint. You might not be able to go too wild (we’re crushing on some deep green and lilac tones right now!) but even a nice bright white can give you a great canvas to work with. If painting is a no go, try some temporary wall paper. Some of our favourite shoots ever have featured amazing floral and leafy walls, and with temporary paper you really can’t go wrong.
