This Character-Filled Home is a Renter-Friendly Retro Paradise

A lifelong lover of antiques and vintage, Meghan MacWhirter is a ceramic artist based in Calgary, Alberta (Mohkínstsis). Meghan’s love of bright colour, whimsy and retro designs is reflected in her ceramic art, personal style and joyful, brightly decorated home.

Decorated with as much vintage and thrifted furniture and home decor as possible, her home design brings in plenty of bright colours and fun patterns. She lives in a 1,200-square-foot rental home with her husband, an artisan ice cream maker, and their two cats. As a renter, Meghan looks for spaces with character details like original wood panelling and clean white walls to give her a solid blank canvas to work with. See how she brought vintage character and the sunniest colour palette to life in her artful vintage-inspired home. Be sure to also check out the video tour of Meghan’s colourful abode.
