I did not have a chance to do my usual rounds and I spent most of my time at Ikea where, in fact, I needed to buy a few things for few outstanding projects. They made some new displays and vignettes and I always like to look at their inspirations. Here are some of the new ones in my local store:
If I remember correctly the kitchen above used to be all gray (top and bottom) and they've changed it up to have white uppers. I also really like the first picture how they framed an area that could be a little bar, coffee station, etc.
Incorporating nursery in master bedroom.
Like the colour of these chairs and practical wall on the right - especially hooks for backpacks.
Ever since we painted couple of walls black in our basement I've been seeing black/white wall combos everywhere which is great. I like gallery wall above the sofa - first I thought they were new frames only to realize these are still RIBBA frames where print comes with its own matting making it seem like completely different picture (frame).
I also like this rug - it would probably look really nice in the girls' room but I have something else in mind for now (second photo). In third photo - there is pine linen cabinet. I have been searching high and low for linen cabinet of particular dimensions and while this one is too big, it reminds me of my Swedish life. Finally, a really cool poster - I have maps on my mind for some time now and somehow I never saw this one before at Ikea.
On the subject of romans and blinds from yesterday's post, here are couple of other options that Ikea came up with. Instead of using the fabric itself to hold the blind, one could use appropriate ribbon.
