So if anything our latest trip was very much overdue.
I can’t help but deny the fact I am obsessed with interiors. I love pattern, print and colour the most, I’m always on the lookout for something a little bit quirky.
Furniture aside, I leave the flat pack stuff to the Mr. It is always about the market place for me...
On arrival, the store has quite literally been hijacked, by the cutest teddies. At 99p these little chaps help raise money towards UNICEF and Save the Children. I would be surprised if anyone didn’t leave without one.
These magazine racks are just what I needed to sort out my collection and manage to make a piece of cardboard look attractive, at £2.29 for a pack of four.
This cute dining bowl suits my bedroom more than my kitchen, and makes for a great trinket holder at £1.59.
As far as Christmas goes, this dinky straw goat was far too adorable to leave behind, and I just know he’s going to make a welcome addition this Christmas time. I did admire the larger version, but sensibly decided upon the smaller one for £2.49.
And last but certainly not least this octopus hanging dryer, now surely that’s going a little too far? But hey I’ve always loved a bit of tack. He was £4.49.
Above all Ikea always manages to inspire and excite me, which fits the budget and always surprises me, with such innovative and contemporary design.
