      If you need an easy-to-follow method to decorate, I highly recommend Cozy Minimalist Home by Myquillyn Smith. (It's not only for minimalists; it's called that because the tagline is more style with less stuff.) She has a specific order to follow in designing and decorating your space that really works! Super easy to follow.

    Hi Mr Kate I’ve been watching how you hang up stuff on the walls...I find that alien tape is great to hang up stuff on walls without putting nails up or making holes into walls...for those that live in apartments.

    I got a question. I'm currently in a rental. I have vaulted ceilings, but a small space. I can't put holes in the wall obviously. I've used command strips for several things. I like my plants and my electronics. But... I only have one window with any real sunlight. Any tips on bringing in enough light to keep my plants alive and decorate them where I want too?

    I'm in my first apartment which is a studio, the whole complex used to be a hotel and was converted into apartments a few years ago. It doesn't have a stove or oven and minimal counter space. I asked my landlord if I could put holes in the walls/ceiling for like pictures, lights, a canopy, etc. and she told me their rules are that I CAN put holes in the wall, but when I leave, put a little post it or piece of blue tape over every hole I made and leave the patching/painting up to them and it won't affect getting my deposit back as they EXPECT you're going to want to decorate and customize. Just make sure you get your landlord's policy on if they want you to patch and paint before you move or if they would rather you left it to them (many prefer to do it themselves, even IF you've already done it to ensure its been done properly and to code so someone else can move in).

    16:00 the best part about putting an area rug over carpet in a living room: if you or a guest spills something, the permanent wall-to-wall carpet your security deposit hinges on is perfectly fine! Area rugs can be replaced, wall-to-wall carpeting, not so much.
