Unable to redecorate her rented property, Anna Lysik was very limited when it came to personalising the place – but that didn’t deter her
A bit about me
I’m Anna Lysik, and I live with my boyfriend, Andras, and two cats Maru and Mia.
Where I live
My home is a two-bed apartment on the edge of the beautiful Castlefield area in Manchester. I moved in three years ago.
What I wanted to change
We rent the property from an agency which means we aren’t able to make any changes whatsoever – not even a lick of paint or a nail in the wall, so I just wanted to make the place as homely as possible with some quick, temporary fixes.
How I made it my own
I’ve accessorised with items I’ve made myself to give the place a little personality.
My favourite part
It has to be the office area in my bedroom, as I made the desk from scratch!
