Working in the field of interior design, I daily have the thought of, “ughhhhhh I want that”.
It’s my job to make other people’s homes beautiful. So what does that mean for me? Constant yearning. However being a first time home-owner, realistically, I am going to have an ikea house top to bottom. Every 20-something-year-old knows what I’m talking about right now. And it’s fine! Because, Ikea has come out with some really cool stuff. Obviously not a place to find unique or high quality scores, but a place that is great for basics and staple items that will contribute to the layers in your home.
My top 3 from this list? The rug, that is $99. You honestly can’t top that. The chandelier is another favourite as it’s perfect for a quaint romantic bedroom or an ensuite bathroom, and is $49! Finally, I love the bench (ikea has it used as a media unit) but I would DIY a cushion for the top and use it in my mudroom or by the front door! I also can’t NOT mention the tray stand which is a piece that there is always a spot for, to put plants, books, or candles on. It also comes in gray and pink, so I will probably be purchasing one for every room in my home!
Don’t live near an ikea,
