Designing with Ikea

Ikea has really stepped up its game lately.  I am quite impressed with some of its recently launched furnishings and decor.  Ultimately, Ikea does "simple and streamlined" quite well, a quality of Scandinavian design.

I pulled together a mood board that shows you how you can create a comfortable, colorful, and casual living space using only Ikea furnishings and decor.  This top-to-bottom living room design is also very friendly on your wallet!

Everything in the design board sans tv is from Ikea - accessories and plant included!  Total cost was approximately $2,188.00.  Realistic.  Affordable.  Doable.

On a side note: We personally don't have many Ikea pieces to have a strong opinion either way; however, from a quality/price standpoint, the Ikea products that we do own have withstood the test of time and have proven durable.

I added a fun accent seating area that put the FUN in functional.  A small chest of drawers, which was used as an end table, is not only practical, but it also brings a happy dose of color!  The orange table lamp adds unexpected whimsy, and ties in the color of the orange from the wall art and sofa accent pillow.  Adding the sheepskin rug layer over the larger black and white area rug helps segment the sitting nook while adding softness and texture... and more of the unexpected!

My favorites from the room design are probably the blue locker-style storage cabinet (which also comes in other colors) and woven rattan pendants.  I also love all the pillow covers! :)
