moving abroad

has anyone ever moved abroad and set up a temporary home? i don't want to bring any furniture, and i don't want to spend a lot of money.  but, i also don't want to live in a bachelor's pad...

in my moving to australia post i found some pretty standard ikea furniture. 

but, these ikea pieces (which are not super cheap in australia btw) need a little inspiration

i love the gray walls and teal accessories.  i can't bring any of my artwork to australia, but i do have one of the prints seen below not yet framed- that is definitely mailable!

i got the lithograph on a steal via the onekingslane website.  hung over an australian table (similar to the one in the inspiration picture), it might bring some life to the room.

i also would need to do some art on the cheap.  i could copy one of peter dunham's works but in a dark navy or steel color

then, i could bring my billowy steel gray curtains inspired by below... maybe then it won't look like a temporary home after all.  one room down, several more to go!

inspired by

i wish my apartment could get a makeover every season like my wardrobe.  next time we do a home makeover (maybe soon when we move to australia?) we will get neutral pieces so we can change our accents.  below are some of my favorite fall living spaces inspired by some of my favorite fall fashions.
