Ikea Bank Holiday

Just in time for the bank holiday trip to Ikea… a little roundup of my favourite pieces from Ikea for SS 2015. Sometimes you just miss the best bits because you’re frantically chasing the wrong child around the store, or wanting to just get to the cafe for your meatballs and cranberry sauce.

So here are my faves:

ARKELSTORP Desk, black


Desk, black – £135

Black and pine. Winning!



Storage Box, pine – from £5

Stackable storage. Can’t have too much. Get some.



Room divider, black – £39

I’ve always wanted a room divide… just need to get a larger house with a big enough room to divide first. Am on it.


Ikea are being sneaky sneaky and not showing the table and bench seating on their UK site just yet. Or the matching coffee and side table you can see in the background shot. But they MUST be arriving soon. I like a nice splayed leg I do!

UPDATE – It’s the LISABO and it’s £120. Wowzers. Nice price for an ash veneer dining table eh?

Table, birch, white – £160

Beautifully simple and really good value.



Three-seat sofa, Samsta dark yellow – £450

Can’t get more spring/summer than a yellow sofa. Lovely with the muted wall colour, black furniture and floor lamps. Strong!



Wing chair, Skiftebo yellow – £195

Complete bargain. This bright yellow and green room just looks fff-fresh.


NORDLI bedroom range.

This white and pale blue bedroom is just so calm. I want to sleep right now. Ikea refer to this as, “LESS IS MORE – Simplicity Therapy.”

Totes agree. (I don’t really say that).


HÖNEFOSS Mirror – £15

 “Copper is an ongoing trend and brings a sense of warmth and luxury to a bedroom,’ says stylist Carl Braganza. ‘With just a few packs of mirrors, you can create a statement headboard.”

So that should get you started for some bank holiday room inspiration. Enjoy your trips to various DIY and home stores this weekend. May you all return home unscathed and with the correct number of children. If you do decide to go to Ikea, please can you bring me back some of these? J’adore!


Happy Weekend everyone!
