Shopping: Ikea haul

Call me crazy if you want, but I love every single thing I bought!

Ikea has always been one of my favorite shopping spots for all things related to home decor. As anyone freshly out of school and at the beginning of his career knows, there's hardly a better place to find unexpensive furniture and fun decorations. What's more, thanks to its lower price, Ikea furniture lands itself perfectly to inspired DIY projects (I have yet to share with you my bookshelves makeover). It will come as no surprise that decorations from Ikea are scattered all over our place (I am really partial to their candles, candleholders and flower pots). And since I've been more than obsessed with their latest pink collection, I was really happy when I received an Ikea gift card from my mom for my birthday. One shopping spree later, I came home with a bag overflowing with various godies that have been making me happy ever since.

A set of three storage tins that are already holding my favorite tea cookies.

Rose wrapping paper, two pretty dish towels and cute pot holders.

A set of cute pink & green bowls that have already been put to a good use here.

Vintage and romantic art cards, and two pink face towels.


  1. oh those goodies definitely are so adorable and cute but my boyfriend is not a fan of pink things, haha and he would probably be pretty mad if I bought a heap of pink goodies :P btw, I also love shopping for my home :)

  7. I love Ikea! We are using their larger galvanized lanterns for my sisters bridal shower and wedding. So much cheaper than the other things we have looked into!

  16. I love Ikea as well - I happen to live a 15 min drive away from one, and we've bought a lot of our interior deco from there :) Your finds are amazing, I really need to make a tour there and see if there's something lovely to spice up our little balcony. So thank you so much for the inspiration! :) xoxo ♥
