For The Love of Textiles

I've mentioned before how much I love IKEA. Their playful products feature in most rooms of our house and their textiles line the sofa in my studio, form the basis of this table top tent and cover the beds in the kids rooms. So it was with complete and utter delight that I headed out last night to our closest IKEA to view the new textile range. 

It was no surprise to see that it was awesome. 

We saw a shift away from vibrant colours (although they were still there, just more refined) with a focus on luscious linens, muted hues and delicious texture. Central to the range are ideals of simplicity, quality and affordability. The palette is soft and subtle and the result is ohhh so lust worthy.



Now excuse me while i wipe the drool from my 2013 catalogue and bury my head in this beautiful publication.

  3. I SO love Ikea, but I only get there once in a while. Last time I went I bought the bekvam spice racks to use as book shelves - at $2.50 they are so cheap and with a coat of paint I think they look fantastic!

  9. I love IKEA too! Wish my husband loved it as much as I do. I always buy tons of the 35 cent (US) dish towels and use them as napkins. What a bargain and they look cute too.

    And yes your photos are terrific. Thanks!
