I am an Ikea addict. I could spend hours just browsing, planning and wishing.
Luckily a few of my friends feel the same.
The other week we took a spontaneous trip to Ikea (mainly for the food), the
nearest store is about an hours drive from me so not too close to be there as
often as I would like.
I’m moving in with my boyfriend in less than a month (scary!) so went for a
look around and to get a couple of catalogues. Of course you can’t come out
without a few little things…
I’m not sure if this is a jug or a vase but it’s a lovely ceramic and looks great with flowers in.
Did I need some flamingo polka dot napkins? I’m not
sure.. but for £1 I couldn’t resist. They’ll be lovely for BBQs if we ever get
I really love this lamp, I can’t believe I didn’t get two..looks like another trip is on the cards!
Alarm clock - £4.50
This clock looks so sweet but it is the work of the devil. It is SO loud. I
keep it at the other side of my room to make sure I get out of bed but it makes
a rubbish start to the day.
Heart shaped cactus - £3
Another impulse buy that was too sweet to leave.
I have spent a long time recently on the Ikea website and Pinterest (so much more exciting that the essays I need to finish) and have but together a little wish list. My boyfriend hates shopping, hates ikea and likes to have a plan, so we need to know what we’re going in for and not spent time wandering.
This time last year I was packing to spend my 21st in New York, I love this print and think it would look great framed.
I love ‘soft furnishings’ and think that a rug, throw or cushions can really pull together a room.
I really love the Hemnes collection, I’m lucky that my mum is downsizing her house at the same time so there is a lot of spare furniture for us to take but I love these two pieces.
I apologise for the image quality, my beloved camera broke. Thankfully it was under warranty but they have returned it back without the battery pack..mighty annoying!
