The images in this post make it super long, so I will get right to the point. This past weekend, while visiting my parents in my hometown, I made a pit stop at Ikea. I love wandering through the marketplace and stocking up on pretty little things that will take me years to use up but make me happy to have anyway. On this trip I was super impressed by their selection of striped and patterned bolts of fabric--wouldn't they make great pillows? I also bought a ton of paper napkins, especially blue and white polka dots on the top. Inexpensive solutions to a pretty table or couch: thanks Ikea!
p.s. Was anyone else a little disappointed by everything else in the Ikea catalogue this year? I think a lot of the accessories look great, but the big ticket items seem to be getting more boring, no?
