Styling a home as a renter in Australia is generally restrictive, but with a creative and inventive approach, it is possible to create a truly personalised space.
To find out how, we turned to the master — aka Monde furniture designer and Homebody stylist Tilly Barber, whose rental properties always reflect her timeless and modernist-inspired style (see here, and here and here!)
Today, Tilly reveals the tips and tricks behind her seemingly effortless home transformations to inspire your next rental makeover!
1. Choose modular furniture
It’s hard to commit to large furniture items in a rental property when you don’t know how long exactly you’ll be staying.
The solution — invest in modular and extendable pieces, capable of adapting to your current and future needs, whatever they may be.
A versatile modular sofa, for example, allows a variety of configurations, ensuring flexibility in the future.
An extendable dining table is also a great solution for small rental properties, where only occasional entertaining takes place.
‘I recommend seeking out things you can utilise for as many rooms or uses as possible,’ says Tilly.
