Loving Your Rental : Dubai Edition

April 29, 2012



Love how fellow renters come up with creative solutions to work around the limitations of renting no matter where in the world one lives. 

Meet fellow Canadian blogger, Lisa Roy

Currently residing in Dubai and renting a high rise apartment, Lisa loves to share her life living abroad and her design adventures of turning a blank and blah rental into a fabulously inviting space.
A whiz with the sewing machine and armed with some DIY gutso, she has created a beachy space high in the clouds among Dubai high rises. Without being able to paint OR put holes in the wall,  Lisa uses ingenuity to create a splash!






If you want to follow her adventures of life in Dubai, make sure to to add her blog to your daily read!
And if you want to read my "So Canadian, eh?" interview with her, you can read it here.

  3. Thanks for the intro! It's true, I've seen some of those house hunter shows and they have shown Dubai and I found the apartments that they show very unappealing. How refreshing it is to see someone have enough imagination and sources to make their rental a home. I am now a follower.

  4. Thanks so much for featuring my space Barb ~ you're so sweet! While I was a bit disappointed I wasn't allowed to paint when we moved in, I'm actually kind of loving the pale ivory walls now. I say ~ embrace the pale! xo Lisa

  8. love Lisa'a style! She has managed to create such a friendly, relaxed vibe in a high-rise, and I think that it's pretty cool that she remained true to her own style, even living half-way around the world!

  14. A home is a home when it is loved and cared for ...rental or otherwise! This home is thought about deeply. The depth of thought that has gone into it is apparent in the pictures! And that "capiz shell" chandelier she made is stunning!
