Damage-Free Apartment Decorating

Damage-Free Apartment Decorating

Apartment living has lots of perks. You aren’t committed to a 30 year mortgage. If you don’t like where you are, wait out the lease, or break it if you need to. Leaky faucet? Call the landlord.

So how do you add your personal style and guarantee that security deposit back? You’re in luck! Damage-free decorating is my middle name. Read on for some great resources.

Should I Stay Or Should I Go?

Should I Stay Or Should I Go?

My husband and I became first-time homeowners of a slightly dilapidated 1,200 square foot bungalow in 2007.  At the time, I was newly pregnant with our first child. Although this house was a major step up in space from our 700 square foot rental in Boston, we acquired a bathroom that was top to bottom mint green – toilet and all!
