Moving and decorating a new place can be a very stressful AND expensive process.
Since the real estate market was “on fire” in LA it became impossible for us to find a house to buy, so instead we had to look for a temporary rental. Thanks to my broker Henry Dodge and my friend Julie in LA we found an cute bungalow just a few days before the moving trucks arrived. That gave me only a couple of hours to plan a design for a place I had never seen in person. And this had to be done without buying anything new AND leaving our house in Virginia perfectly staged to sell.
Here is a step by step SIMPLE & QUICK guide how you can decorate with nothing new!
STEP # 1
TAKE PICTURES OF THE NEW SPACE
As soon as you have secured the new place, bring paper and pen and a camera to the space. Take one picture from each corner of the room. And one picture from each side of the room. This gives you an excellent overview when you come home and start to work on a design. At this point also take notes as to what the landlord needs to do.Decorate with nothing new – our Livingroom
