Help! I Have Lots of Blank White Walls to Fill


Hey readers! I just moved and need to start decorating my new place. I have tons of white walls and am open to affordable and creative ideas. The bad news is, I can't paint because I don't own the place. I took a bunch of photos of the space now. It's a studio. I'm going with brown as a base color and pink, turqioise, and green as accents. I've also included photos of my inspiration board. Think Moroccan-inspired prints, leopard, and lots of textures. How should I decorate?

I agree with Flower about the lanterns...lighting is everything! You can make your own pendant light using a lamp cord kit with a cool patterned shade and hang from the ceiling using 3M removable clips. Here's one for $12 from Urban: http://bit.ly/92oGOy

Have you seen wall decals? I haven't had a chance to try them yet, but they claim to be removable. And if you go to the main company site, they often will let you custom order different colors. There are a bunch on etsy, and a google search turns up bunches of sellers. This particular set reminds me a bit of your idea board: http://www.velocityartanddesign.com/iron-vines-wall-decals-c-422-p-1-pr-16593.html Can you put holes in the walls? Like hooks for lanterns? There are so many beautiful colored lanterns out there. An array of them in front of that bay window would be beautiful. Cost Plus World Market often has them in stock, or you can look online: http://www.amazon.com/Sababa-Shopping-37538-MOROCCAN-LANTERN/dp/B000PDFM3C/ref=sr_1_19?ie=UTF8&s=home-garden&qid=1267727450&sr=1-19 There is so much out there for leopard print. I had fun looking around for a little while. Ok, maybe more than a little while. I found a series of leopard print rugs here: http://www.homedecorators.com/P/Leopard_Area_Rug/910/ Leopard print sheets: http://www.neimanmarcus.com/store/catalog/prod.jhtml?itemId=prod38150150&parentId=cat16130761&masterId=&index=4&cmCat=cat000000cat000553cat17640731cat16130735cat16130748cat16130761 Leopard print switch covers: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B002H6KLCC?ie=UTF8&tag=leopardprintlove-20&linkCode=as2&camp=1789&creative=390957&creativeASIN=B002H6KLCC Leopard print pillow: http://www.worldmarket.com/product/index.jsp?productId=3604678 Leopard print chair: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B001L4PRIE?ie=UTF8&tag=leopardprintlove-20&linkCode=as2&camp=1789&creative=390957&creativeASIN=B001L4PRIE Neat leopard print trunk: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B002UK7T7A?ie=UTF8&tag=mariesmanor0b-20&linkCode=as2&camp=1789&creative=390957&creativeASIN=B002UK7T7A Green leopard print throw: http://www.amazon.com/Fun-Leopard-Green-Throw-Blanket/dp/B001GDNAOS/ref=sr_1_10?ie=UTF8&s=home-garden&qid=1267726513&sr=1-10 And I know you didn't list purple in your colors, but your comforter pic looks purple, so here's a purple leopard & zebra print bedding set: http://www.amazon.com/Purple-Zebra-Leopard-Complete-Bedding/dp/B000Y91S6C/ref=sr_1_7?ie=UTF8&s=home-garden&qid=1267726175&sr=1-7 Good luck!
