How can I add style to my apartment walls??


I am not allowed to paint, but would love to add an accent wall, or do something that would add color and interest to my beige walls. Any ideas?

    I would apply removable wall paper or Contact paper for a fast, gorgeous and REMOVABLE surface! When you are ready to move (or change your mind!), simply peel off. If there is any residue, wipe with a soft rag wet with Windex.

    Removable wallpaper to the rescue! We just did my daughters apt and it turned out great. I love this site:

    Target has some great offerings too.

    if you aren’t up to wallpapering as suggested, a smaller scale upgrade would be a decal. You can do a catchy phrase of words or some ‘tiles’ of designs. I’ve seen these options at Joann’s.

    Hang a large rug or a piece of fabric using a long dowel rod.

    Or hang an old door that will slide on a track

      Great idea - thank you! I'm going to look for an old door for my study - I think it would look great.

    How wide is the wall? Would you be able to put up curtain hooks to old those straight pocket curtain rods? If so Maybe you can find a nice printed curtain or fabric to make into a curtain and brighten up the room?
