25 Must have Items from IKEA

Hi friends, I know it’s been a while since the last blog post but sometimes you need sometime to just sit back and take the time to really think about the content that you want to put out for your audience as well as take the time to plan out your blogs. So that is exactly what I have done. I am excited to bring more new content that you will all enjoy. I really enjoyed putting this blog post together for you. I hope you enjoy it as mush as I enjoyed working on it.

Ikea has released some fabulous new items for 2019 and what better way to have a closer look at some of these items, then to sit down and share with you my top 25 must have items from Ikea. Of course I will share with you a mix of their new and old items because mixing new with old is what I do best. I will also add some photos of some of the items that I have purchased from Ikea and show you how I style and use these decor pieces in our home. It’s time to grab a cup of coffee or tea and get your laptop ready to do some cyber browsing with me. Of course if you choose to add any of these items into your cart and click the checkout button, well let’s just say I won’t blame you. Who wouldn’t love the items I am about to share with you.

If you’re wondering why these items made the top of my list here’s why. Three things I love are neutral colours, rustic furniture pieces and farmhouse decor. Ikea seems to cater to both those that enjoy a modern look and design but also to those that enjoy the rustic farmhouse style. The pieces I have chosen are not only ones that I love and have purchased for our home but also ones that I think others will enjoy too. And if I am being completely honest with you some of these items are on my wish list. I think now as we head into fall and winter exploring decor items that give a sense of calmness but also add a little warmth to our homes are good items to look out for.

It’s important to make your home your sanctuary. Design and decorate it so it feels like home is where you always want to be. At least that’s how I feel about mine. Which can be a really good thing but can also be bad at times because it just makes it that much harder to leave home some days.

Here are my top 25 must have items from Ikea. I have provided you all with the item name, description and the cost of each item in CAD.

Sharing a photo of our GJÖRA Queen size bed frame from Ikea. We just love the simplicity of this frame and the natural wood look. We have owned this bed frame for about 3 years now. It is made of solid wood and is very durable. If you are looking for a bed frame from Ikea we highly recommend this one.

Here is how we use our LOHALS rug from Ikea! It is the perfect jute rug to help bring out the rustic feel throughout our home. We love using this rug in the living and dining room.

The LOHALS rug was added under our dining table to make things a little cozier in this space. I was never one to put a rug under our dining table but Nelson seemed to enjoy the look of it and well I think with time it has kind of grown on me. There is just something about this rug.

Even Oso enjoys the comfort of the LOHALS rug. I think he enjoys it more then me;)

Here’s how I style and decorate using the CITRONSYRA   plant pot. The perfect pot for one of my many spider plants that we have throughout our home. This pretty enamel pot has an antique look to it and it goes perfectly with my other antique pieces. A mix of new and old. Love how this display shelf turned out in our kitchen.

This piece right here is another favourite of ours. The HEMNES 3-drawer chest. This piece is so versatile because it can be used as a dresser, or a hutch or even and entryway table. This colour especially is one of my favourites. The design and overall look of it has a very country feel to it. This would make a lovely piece to have in your home or cottage.

Let’s not forget this beauty. The GLITTRAN kitchen faucet! I was on the hunt for a farmhouse looking faucet and everywhere I looked they seemed to be very expensive. I decided to just have a quick look at the faucets from Ikea and there is was, this lovely kitchen faucet and right within my budget. I took a screenshot of it and off to Ikea we went to pick it up. I wont ever forget this day because it was the day that my friend Lisa and I travelled through the craziest ice storm to get this faucet along with a few other goodies from Ikea. Even though this may have not been the best day for driving around, it ended up being the best day for shopping because all the stores were completely empty that day. Thanks Lisa for being brave enough to drive through some crazy weather, all in the name of decor.

Of course I also had to share the SVARTSJÖN hooks. These are just so beautiful and scream farmhouse. They are perfect for you farmhouse lovers. For the price and the quality they are amazing! We needed some hooks behind the bathroom door to hang towels and I thought that these would be the perfect hooks. I am thinking of getting a few more of these and using them behind the bedroom doors. Again these provide a very country and cottage feel which I just love.
