Creative Living: A look at cool rental homes

Posted By on Tue, Jul 20, 2010 at 12:17 PM

Last week's cover story — penned by yours truly! — profiled people in the Charlotte area whose rental homes are decorated funky, fresh and eclectic. (Yes, I know I'm late posting this.)


For example, Kymm Mclean's home is full of color, with yellow-painted walls of the reading room with Christmas balls hanging from the ceiling. Scooter Arnold's mother-in-law suite, small but quaint, is reminiscent of the 1950s, and his collection of Marilyn Monroe memorabilia hardly overwhelms at all.

And fashion designer Lore Emelio's small house in Dilworth doubles as her studio, where she designs her hats, bow ties and other accessories from her line.

In fact, when we went to check out her place, fabric was hanging against a wall that would be utilized for her fall collection. But I can't say any more about that. (Here's a shot of her front showroom, which used to be her living room. Photography by Ashley Goodwin.)


So you should definitely check out this story here. And not only because I wrote it — although that is a pretty big deal, if you ask me — but also because you may garner some ideas to decorate your own place. After all, just because you rent doesn't mean your home can't be fabulous.
