When Anisa and Casey Darnell moved to Roswell, GA, a town just north of Atlanta, buying a home was not an option-the lousy housing market meant they hadn't been able to sell their previous home. But that didn't stop Anisa, a self-taught interior designer who is half of the firm Milk & Honey Home (MilkandHoneyHome.com), from making the rental they found her own. "I would paint if I could, but it seemed safer to keep the neutral colors that were already here," says Anisa.
So she worked with the beige-and-cream palette, adding comfy, functional furnishings and making small cosmetic upgrades to change it from nice-enough to truly inviting. "We might only be here for two years," says Anisa, "but I don't want it to feel like a temporary space. We can always patch holes, but life is too short not to feel happy in your own home."
