IKEA + Teresa Karpinska = <3

When it comes to interiors, my taste in home accents is very similar to my taste in clothes – I am very fond of neutrals and items that in its simplicity create a striking effect when skillfully combined. 

My guest bedroom needed a bit of a boost; or was a part of the home that had been a little neglected in the most recent move so I was really happy when this creative opportunity came along. Not to mention that each trip to IKEA means a happy meal and by that I naturally mean the Swedish meatballs. 

I spend an overall of 1000 aed on items that I have specified below. The most important part was to bring in the fluffy rugs to for my guests to step on in the morning and the earthy toned beige linen sheets. I made sure to get a few decoration pillows (for the bed to look fuller and “creatively messy”) and copper accents to break off all the earthiness. 

Candles are the safest way to make a room lived in and inviting I find so they were represented in a few sizes all over the room. They are also one of those typical IKEA items that noone ever leaves the store without. 

A very important feature for a bedroom is the phenomenon in memes referred to as “the chair;  meaning the one piece of furniture where clothing lands on its journey between the laundry basket and the closet / suitcase. The Jassa collection is my current favourite at IKEA – both because of its look and it’s eco ethos so I was happy to find one in the thrifty ”as is” section.

Lastly I made sure to pick up a few storage boxes because as a rather organised person I appreciate when storage is provided every time I’m being hosted somewhere – the “living out of a suitcase” lifestyle is thrilling for a day or two but then mostly tiring. Freeing up closet space for guests is a really nice way of showing hospitality I find.

Tomorrow I’ll be announcing the winner of the 1000 aed voucher and I can’t wait to see what you accomplish with your living spaces.
