Home is where the heart is
I have somewhat a guilty pleasure in the name of Ikea. Yes you heard me right, Ikea.
The shop and catalogue get me so excited, it’s probably because we don’t have one locally, so when we do go it’s always a bit of a treat.
In my mind I hate the idea of a flat pack home, but like many things it’s not all as it seems. Behind the big bold yellow brand name, there are believe me hidden treasures.
For example, these cushions that have lasted me for nearly 5years. And I still love them as much as I did when I first bought them. I got them both for less than £10 and they never fail to brighten up a room. I know the embroidery is completely after my own heart.
Just browsing through these catalogues gives me enough inspiration, particularly the way they cleverly store things. I am obsessed with storage; I like things being neat but also like them being nice to look at.
Please can I have a bookshelf like this one?
Or a sink like this pretty please?
These star shaped fairy lights were £2, and are battery powered; they’ve sneakily snuck themselves into the living room for over the Christmas period, but will probably find a more permanent home in my craft room.
I also love the bargain corner. Well the name says it all. We picked up some *mystery* items recently and I am spilling with excitement. More will be disclosed on a later date.
So apart from wanting to dive into the catalogue literally, I must say I am smitten with Ikea.
