RANDALL & AUBIN | REVIEW

When you’re renting an apartment there’s only so much you can do to make it ‘yours’.

 

Most tenancy agreements restrict you from putting up shelves and hanging photo frames for the fear of damaging the walls. Fixtures and fittings are, for the most part, unmovable and you have to make your colour scheme match with whatever god-awful furniture the landlord had left behind for the not-so-lucky resident.

 

I’m fortunate that my newly-built townhouse is incredibly modern and the furniture is new, stylish and pretty much goes with everything. Neutral colours, whites and greys emanate from every room and whilst this is great for achieving the ‘Scandi’ look, the sheer lack of colour make the rooms feel bleak, clinical and not in the slightest bit homely.

 

With the thought that I’ll be living here for at least the next few years before I move out of the city and, dare I even say it, buy a family home, there’s no chance that I’ll be spending it staring at dreary white-wash walls. So we have decided to decorate our home as much as we can, adding the odd throw here and cushion there to put our stamp on our first home as a couple.

 

Here are just some of the items that I’ve had my eye on this month.
