When you move into a new home, whether its your first or tenth, you’ll likely want to add your own stamp to make it feel yours. This is a normal part of having your own space. If you own the property, you can do so many different things. However, if you live in rented accommodation, there are usually rules you need to follow.

Depending on your landlord, you may be lucky enough to find that you can decorate as you please as long as you change it back when you move out. For others, its not so easy. Some landlords have it written in the contract that you can’t decorate or even make holes in the walls. This can mean that you feel so restricted by how you can make the place feel like your home.

I’m very grateful that I live in a house where I can make minor changes. Having said that, I change my mind more often than the weather changes. I wanted to add some artwork to my home but I didn’t want to start making holes everywhere, if I kept moving pieces around. This is where Photowall comes in, so read on to find out why.

Who is Photowall?

If you have been a long term reader of The Kelly Diane Report, you might remember I worked in partnership with Photowall on another post. Photowall make high quality canvas prints, wall murals, wallpapers and posters, delivering them straight to your door. Hassle free and affordably priced, their products can add that personal touch to your home without much effort.

How can they help me add art to my rented home?

As mentioned above, Photowall make posters. These are a great way of adding art to your home because you can tack them up without the need for creating holes. There are so many stunning designs to choose from, you will be spoilt for choice.

As some of you may know, I’m a huge aviation fan and try to add elements of that in my home. When I saw this amazing Typhoon poster, I just instantly fell in love with it. I had that feeling you sometimes get where you look at something and instantly know where you would put it. (I gave a sneak peak over on my Instagram a little while ago but here it is in its full glory.)

In this instance, I knew this poster would look great in my home office. Its a shared office where half of it is mine and I had a large wall space that was bare. The Typhoon poster now sits proudly above my desk and every time I look at it, it makes me smile. Its the first thing you notice when you enter the room, which I love.

If you have been struggling with how to add art to your rented home, I’d highly recommend you check out Photowall. I’d love to know what your favourite piece is from their website and I’m sure Photowall would love to see any of their artwork in your home. Remember to use the hashtag #photowallsweden
