Love how the tiny colorful rug brings the entire room together
Ikea has been one of my earliest design crushes and source of inspiration. I love how affordable good design (if not the greatest quality) has been made accessible to everyone by Ikea. So, it was with anticipation that I browsed through the Ikea Live site - a website showcasing real homes, ideas and spaces created by people using products from Ikea. I loved these homes - the fact that each had a distinct imprint of the people who lived in them, in spite of using mass produced furniture and products - made it all the more interesting. Here are some spaces that sang to me :)
Rough floors, rugged roof and a pristine white couch - just about perfect!
I am trying not to exclaim oh-how-pretteh!, and am completely failing at the attempt :)
Have always loved a small desk by a window nook. You got to be able to look out to something while working!
Ooh..this tapestry behind the bed, that chalkboard cupboard and those hardwood floors!
Prints and more prints!
Reclaim that wood! Now.
Look at that birdie!
What a nice eclectic mix of varied art and pillows/cushions here
As lovely as this room is, my little bloggie blog has this wicked temptation to splash some color in it! Put a bright bedspread, bring that rug from the very first image in this post to the bedside, spread a vintage mirror work textile across that bench, and put up one brightly colored hat on the wall! That's it. :)

I shall see you again tomorrow with an interesting post - I am already ooh aahing over it!
