My husband and I are moving overseas (to the Middle East) for two years. Furnished housing will be provided, but it's very plain and somewhat ugly. I'm looking for some ideas on what to bring with us to help decorate- we can't paint the walls, and have limited weight allowances. Oh, there's also an Ikea there, which is a great plus, but not the end-all and be-all of decorating, by any stretch.
Some ideas I've already had:
-Photos. Lots and lots of photos from home.
some cool images, to cover up wall space. But what images?
-We have three gorgeous saris from our wedding, which will make good tablecloths or curtains.
-Bring a large jar of ModPodge, to decoupage ugly second-hand furniture or super-plain IKEA stuff
Any other ideas?
