5 Things from IKEA I Cannot Wait to Buy

I love the Scandinavian way of filling your house with pieces that really speak to you and make you happy. It’s that combination of minimalism, practicality and making a house a home.

As we’re getting real close to moving into our new house, I want to share our top five picks from IKEA we just cannot wait to add to our collection! Here we go:


Sources // one | two | three | four | five

one / STRALA lamp shades  //  I’m seeing these pretty babies hanging over the dining table. Just the stars, without the actual light bulb inside. I’m also seeing one of them being spray painted black…

two / STRANDMON wing chair  //  This guy has been on my mind ever since I first sat in it a few months ago. It’s THAT comfy. I can’t wait to dress it up with a blanket and sheepskin and read books while the snow is quietly turning the world white outside the window…

three / POKAL wine glasses  //  I’ve never paid much attention to these glasses until I saw this image! Seriously? Perfection for my Gluehwein!!

four / ARV bowl  //  Just a little something special for the table. I love the more romantic shape of these. Perfect for soups during the colder months.

five / GLADOM side table  //  This is one of IKEA’s newbies. And I love it! It’s sturdy, has a great size and best of all, the top is a tray that comes off. Easy cleaning is what I care about! Now we need to chat about the color though. Really IKEA?? Green?? Yikes! I’m going to spray paint this baby a beautiful matte black. It’s going to be beautiful!
