She said when posting the photo to our facebook page …

“My wedding inspired me for the colors of our first flat. Light pink in the living room, yellow in the guest room and blue/green in our bedroom. I absolutely love how it turned out and that it reminds me of our wonderful day. I bought the earthborn paint from your shop. #FABCelticSus”
