Renter's Remorse No.1: White Walls
Let's face it plain white walls are just plain depressing. We poured an enormous amount of love into our apartment when we first moved in but one thing we neglected was the large white walls. We initially searched for original art to start our own little collection with our very small budget and found a lot of amazing pieces that were all very out of that very small budget. Unwilling to give in to overpriced reprints and framing we eventually gave up and the walls remained white...until now!
