Today I've been trying to find some good examples on Flickr of well decorated flats in Dublin...And I couldn't find any. I was really disappointed but not exactly surprised. Why do Dublin renters not decorate their homes? No, you don't own the place, but there's no reason why you shouldn't make it your own whilst living in it. I'll use this bare room as an example. Even if your landlord won't let you paint, move furniture, and so on, that's no excuse not to do a bit of decorating.
The curtains are from Urban Outfitters. Blanket and Pillows from Avoca. Mirror by BoConcept. Water colour by LaSrtaPil on Dawanda, lamp and picture frame from Ikea, lampshade by Orla Kiely, and you can get those plants at any chain hardware store or garden centre.
There you have it folks. Just a few soft furnishings, a piece of artwork, and a plant or two can make a boring old bedsit into something a bit more homeish.
