As if I needed anymore reasons to think of my lovely cousin, Rachel, Shanghai Knights just came on TV…kung pao chicken! Anyway, Rachel lives in Ireland and just recently got her first job (YAY!) She is now settling into an apartment, and asked me for some help styling her space! This was a little difficult, because I could only search through Irish websites (I don’t get along with the Euro OR centimeters very well…) and I was trying to keep to a low budget for a new graduate. Rachel already had the bed, bedding, nightstands, bedside lighting, and teacup canvas, so really, it was just adding some finishing touches to the room, like accessories, and trying to make it all come together. Here are some befores: And here is my after!
And of course, the breakdown:
Accent Wall: A warm peachy shade. Pick a color from the comforter, and match it to the paint. (If you are allowed to paint!)
Agnaryd Rose Canvas: IKEA
Vintage Teacup Vase: Find on your world travels!
Owl Ornament: Dunnes Home
Alvine Spets Curtains: IKEA
Millinge Rug: IKEA (they have this in light pink too!)
Mongstad Mirror: IKEA
Ribba Picture Ledge: IKEA
Button Heart Canvas: Argos
Ribba Picture Frame: IKEA
I was thinking that on the blank wall across from the bed, you could have a picture ledge, and that way, you can change your pictures, without having to hang everything!
Raymie, I really hope you like this and use it as an inspiration to making it the romantic retreat you were looking for! ❤

Also, I always underestimate your amazing use of photoshop. I feel like these skills could be useful in my future. Mwahaha!
Will send finished pictures 🙂
If you are asking me to photoshop your face, I won’t do it. Rooms only. 🙂
O Sarah . Beautiful! Love how you girls so gloriously spend my money
Hahaha, well, I tried to pick budget friendly items 🙂 ❤ you! Oh Raymie, remember when we were trying to somehow convince your mom that she owed you money for food in Canada, but then nan spilled the beans that you bought all of this other stuff hahahahaha, oh man, we were so close!
