Going to Ikea is always a fun thing to do. I love looking at all the different elements and re-inventing their uses in my head.
Yesterday’s trip was equally as fun for me, but on this trip a few things followed me home.
Two of these……
After reading countless reports about how wonderful these chairs are, I figured I would give them a try in my family room that I am redoing!
So far, very impressed with comfort, looks and quality of the actual slipcover. Obviously the frame is what it is, inexpensive, but for the price a real deal!
This next item also followed me home. It has wanted to come with me on numerous other occasions, but I wasn’t ready for its arrival.
Yesterday it finally made it into my home. However, it is still all rolled up waiting for my sofa to return with its new covering.
The Stockholm Rand rug
The jury is still out and its final judgment will be in two weeks from now.
Black and white stripes, and checks have always been a favorite of mine, and I was realizing with the re-do I did not have it in the room as a main element. With that in mind I am going to try and incorporate it.
A few things might have to be tweaked but here is how it goes with my main fabrics.
You will also see another rug possibility in a blue stripe for the summer season……
(adding the Greek Key motif in a pillow)
( addition of black background Greek key in white)
(An addition of the blue and green print)
BLUE DASH AND ALBERT RUG
(Addition of solid green with center white applique)
So there you have it, now you know what is stirring in my designing mind this weekend between laundry and other fun chores like that!!
