Styling Our Rental Kitchen Two Ways : Color vs Neutrals

When we moved into our rental in January, we’ve always known it was temporary.  While we count down the days until Our Austin Casa is complete, we’ve been settling in and making our current digs feel as much like home as possible, without investing too much in a space that we know isn’t for forever.  (We aren’t even hanging curtains or art here because I just can’t justify it for 5 months and hours spent patching holes and touching up paint.)  As Aaron and I slowly select a piece here and there that we know …
