I is for Ikea

Ikea is one of my favorite places to get stuff for my apartment.  I'm pretty good at putting it all together too!  I love reading the new catalogs when they come out because they are filled with so many great ideas.  Also I do enjoy eating lunch there when I go shopping.  When I moved I didn't take a lot of furniture with me.  Its still a work in progress but I have started to get my office area together.
This desk style comes with lots of customizable options (choice of top, legs, etc) and being obsessed with a black, grey, white color scheme...I went with the above options.  I still haven't done much personalizing (I promise I'm not really this boring haha!) and decorating yet.  I can't wait to get more of my pictures up on the walls.  
My couch is also from Ikea.  Its extremely comfortable and I have fallen asleep many times on it.  I found the pillows at West Elm (here) and the side table is also from Ikea.  It was $9.99...so I got two of them :)     


  1. I shopped at Ikea for the first time in my life last year. I moved from Florida to Pennsylvania and didn't have any furniture. It was also my first time living near an IKEA. I didn't know it had a cafeteria even.

  2. Seriously, who DOESN'T love a little Ikea? I love your couch and those pillows are darling!

  4. Ugh what I'd give to have an Ikea here. Ikea is such a great place especially if you're just starting out on your own. I like to monotone colours you have going for your furniture, I like the sleek and modern look.
