Get The Look: 6 budget-friendly buys to recreate this on-trend sleeping space

Recreate Sarah Murphy’s style.

Each week, we take an Insta-worthy room in Ireland and show you how you can get the look yourself with high street buys.

This week, Sarah Murphy’s (@colourfulsaz) recently re-done bedroom in Dublin was our inspiration.

“I got my colour palette from the interior design guru that is Adele Roche,” says Sarah. “She does an online consultation service and this determined my colours and the overall style of the room I wanted to achieve. I also took inspiration from Pinterest looking at various pins to find the perfect calm combination.”

As part of the transformation, Sarah painted her wardrobes and added a mural to one wall. “Quality paint can really help in achieving a designer look on a budget,” she says. 

Ikea and H&M Home were Sarah’s main port of call when fitting out her bedroom. Below are six high-street products that’ll help you get this look in your own home…

1. Rattan light shade, €38.99, Littlewoods Ireland
