Su Casa: Bedroom Bliss With a Rental

We all know that designing a space to your heart's desire is a difficult prospect in a rental home. While Tmenotte wanted to paint this room, she knew that she and her husband would probably be moving within a year, which meant repainting the walls back to a bland beige to ensure the return of their deposit. So instead of painting, she used textiles—from very affordable sources—to dress her walls.


Tmenotte says, "I wanted to do some things and stick to a budget since this is not going to be a long-term room, so I went to Ikea and got the fun and funky yellow circle duvet cover and the cool poster print that I framed to make it pop. I love the colors of the duvet because it contrasts nicely against my teal sheets from Tuesday Morning. For the windows I wanted to cover up an awkwardly placed window that was off center. Since my husband and I do not have a headboard yet, I decided to give the illusion of one by using the curtains that I picked up from Target. It helps to define the bed and still get some balance."

I'm certainly impressed by how luxe Tmenotte was able to make this room look for such a low price. Want to share your photos? Here's how to post in the Su Casa group. And don't forget to let Tmenotte know what you think of her great room!
