New from Ikea – August News and Sammanhang collection

New from Ikea – August News and Sammanhang collection

You’ll hate us for saying this, but… summer’s almost over. Yup, so sad… We know that because Ikea has two new collections in August.

Our summer was pretty busy this year and to tell you the truth we’re not big fans of a ‘you don’t have a proper summer vacation’ summers. But sometimes life’s just not fair.
And since we’re running out of ideas (and free friends) on how to spend our afternoons and evenings having a perfect summer in the city last week we decided to go to Ikea. Tina is still furnishing her new apartment, so why not? It’s not like we’ll buy something we don’t need. 🙂

We’ve already scrolled through the new catalogues and it was time to go see all of it in person.

So, have you seen what Ikea prepared for this August? We’re in love! We spotted few must-have items – especially if you’re an organizational freak! And you know we are, or at least we try our best to be…

Three rooms for fitted furniture

Three rooms for fitted furniture

Designing a home to the last detail is a tricky decision – regardless of whether you’re designing your own home or home for a client.

Although we love to see all the amazingly designed apartments (some of which we featured here), we are fully aware of the fact that the amount of money and period of time invested in those homes, most of us can’t afford.

Even though it would be nice to have perfectly designed shelves or an entire wall covered with fitted closet which is a breeze to organize, the truth is – those types of units probably wouldn’t have a significant impact to the quality of your everyday life.

If you follow us for a while now, you might have noticed we think of home renovation as a tool for improving everyday life. And it is possible to do that with fitted furniture, you just have to choose wisely where to invest. Continue reading “Three rooms for fitted furniture”

New Ikea collections for our March favourites

New Ikea collections for our March favourites

We’re not sure about your level of excitement right now, but ours is pretty high.

Have you seen what Ikea prepared for this April? We’re mesmerized!

And how could we not love Ikea designs? Something for everybody – that’s their motto! As we were scrolling through the new catalogues (we spent almost the whole March scrolling around), we spotted few must-have items – not because they are so hip and trendy, but because they are designed as something we wished we owned ten years ago and will want to own ten years from now!

We’ll show you our favourites and introduce you to those collections, and we hope you’ll also find something for your must-have list. One of those is limited edition collection, that means they are here today but might be gone tomorrow so be quick and smart. Enjoy! Continue reading “New Ikea collections for our March favourites”

How to start a capsule interior

How to start a capsule interior

“But shouldn’t we choose furniture that will increase in value over time?” asked Maks (you don’t know Maks yet) the other day.

And he got us thinking.

The reality is: we can’t really commit to one “style” and we want to be able to redo our entire home when we get bored with it, without breaking the bank.

That’s just the way things work these days. Or at least they used to work.

Are you familiar with the term “capsule wardrobe”? Even though it tends to get pretty extreme, it’s actually a pretty cool concept.

The same logic could be applied to furniture and small decorative pieces. Instead of dozens of temporary designs, how about we start to work on, basically, a capsule interior? Continue reading “How to start a capsule interior”

How to light up your home in 3 simple steps

How to light up your home in 3 simple steps

Does this sound familiar? You carefully chose every piece of furniture, you perfectly combined materials and colours, you brought in just enough decorations and styled them like a pro. You completely transformed your bathroom and moved the kitchen fixtures to the opposite side of the room. You remodelled your home.

And luminaires? Well, you left them where they were. It’s not simple nor cheap to change the position of light fixtures.

We agree, it’s not. But interior lighting is such an important part of home design, it should never be overlooked. How to design interior lighting? We’re glad you asked!

Trendy side tables that are just one click away from your home

Trendy side tables that are just one click away from your home

Are you picky? Do you have a long wishlist of things you’ll probably never buy because you’re not sure if they’re good enough? Or are you an impulse buyer?

Either way, if you’re currently trying to figure out how to easily upgrade your home, this post is for you.

At the moment, we are remodelling one living room, and we created numerous collections of furniture for our client. We tend to spend quite a lot of time choosing the perfect piece, so we thought – maybe you’d enjoy a sneak peek?

So, this is not our usual ‘Things we love‘ type of post because, let’s be real, not many people can afford the things we love. It’s a collection of beautiful, budget-friendly side tables, chosen from two of our favourite (web)shops (IKEA and ZARA HOME) – literally a click away from your living room. Or bedroom. Or entryway.
