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

via full house 
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!
