In the last 6 weeks I have planned and implemented a move to a new studio, a move to a new house and several fabulous get togethers. This busy fall schedule and the recent opening of the new IKEA in Las Vegas has us loving all things Scandinavian and sleek for the season. Here’s a collection of some of the bits we’ve come to love.
Lanterns ($4 each) hung from a tree set such a romantic tone for a sophisticated garden party or backyard bon fire. Inside, they can be lined up along a dining table with spider webs and candles would be perfect for a spooky Halloween set up, and could be transformed with a bit of greenery for Christmas.
With this versatile feature, it can be hard to know if taking a seat in the back yard, setting your cocktail down for a moment or kicking your feet up is more appropriate.
Visionar Hanging Decorations
IKEA PS Cabinet
This industrial piece works well in a house as a buffet or sideboard, but is also ideal in an office for files and supplies. The sleek lines and industrial appearance provide a really lovely contrast to some softer materials and elements, line luxurious cushions and house plants that are often found in the home.
Blomster Candle Holders
With elegance and ease, these candle holders ($16 for set of 3) will add height and drama to a table scape or mantle alike. Like many of the lighting options found in that blue and yellow nirvana that is IKEA, these candles have so many uses that they are just perfect for- from wedding decorations to setting a warm and romantic tone on a patio.
While we could joyously spend a whole day wandering from room to room in that lovely warehouse, and every time we go in there a new favorite is spotted, these are just a few at the top of our current list.
