If you follow me on InstaGram (@CassieSugarplum), then you know I made the trip to Ikea last week. Like many, I devoured the new Fall Catalog as soon as it arrived, earmarking all the new items I wanted to check out in person. Fortunately (or not?!), I work across the street from Ikea, and can easily stop in. Our store just re-opened the Marketplace level, so it showed the wear-and-tear of a crazy weekend, and many new items were already sold out. Boo.
Instead of re-hashing the catalog, I’ll just show you my favorites and must-buys, linking whenever possible. This map isn’t new, but now I’m imagining it as a headboard in a tween boy’s room! (Here are so good tips for hanging them.)
With these drawers on wheels flanking the bed. I love the masculine, industrial look.
Obviously I had night-stands on the brain, because I really loved the idea of using these drawers in a bedroom.
I loved these cool industrial floor lamps, and couldn’t help but wonder how they’d look with an antique brass spraypaint!! Why do we feel the need to hack everything Ikea comes out with?
On to the good stuff…accessories! These aluminum bowls and platter didn’t disappoint, and certainly bring a lot of bang for the buck.
This time of year, I can hardly resist bright-colored outdoor dishes….these just couldn’t be any cuter.
And dots? It was hard to walk away from these.
Now let’s talk about the essentials…the items used behind-the-scenes of a home, and are perfectly priced at Ikea. Great looking pillows are expensive enough…the hardest part is having to shell out more for a good down insert. How about these 20″ x 20″ for $7?!
The Pluggis bins are a little more than basic plastic bins from Target or Walmart, but the sizes are perfect for so many spaces…not to mention, they give organizing projects a polished finish. They were certainly the superstar in my Pantry Makeover.
