Victoria Harrison added this to My Houzz: British Blogger Puts Her Stamp on a Rented CottageJan 25, 2018

When Stuart and her family moved into the Hampshire cottage, it was in good condition but, like many rentals, rather lacking in personality. It had been painted off-white throughout and was, as Stuart puts it, “very bland.”“Being tenants means we can’t make any structural changes, but we are allowed to paint and make other decorative updates,” she says. “As such, I have updated almost every room in the house, and it really feels unique to us now.”

Add light to mimic fireplace light. Also like windowpane mirror & greenery/nature over mantel.

Work with what you haveThe key to loving your rented property is to think about what you can change, not what you can’t. “I have certain corners in my house I love, and at the moment my master bedroom is probably my favourite space to spend time in,” Victoria says. The room isn’t decorated in a way she would have chosen, but she hasn’t let that deter her. “I’m unable to paint the walls anything other than magnolia, so I had to work out a colour scheme that complemented this instead of fighting against it,” she says. “Blush pink and gold seem to work really well together, and by investing in premium bedding and adding a reading nook and a dressing area, I’ve been able to create different zones for different purposes that still all work as one.”
