Last night IKEA had a media party to launch their brand new store in Richmond. They built one 3 times bigger right beside the old one which will apparently be torn down.
It’s always fun when colour trends arrive at big box stores and become totally affordable. This black and white throw will be a staple in everyone’s living room because it so crisp and graphic with pops of colour.
Like this raspberry sofa!
I bought this light fixture, I just couldn’t resist, maybe it’ll go in my new house somewhere.
Big Polka dots for your daughters room!
And it comes in my favourite colour too.
A black and white pillow to go along with the throw.
Purple and green are always fabulous together.
And if you are craving a white sofa and have kids, you can’t beat the price of this sofa and the slipcovers can be replaced for a song! I have had a few clients whose kids grew up with this sofa and they loved it!
Don’t forget about white cushions to sit alongside your colourful ones. They are such a great price at IKEA and come in a few different textures and sizes. If you have white off-the-shelf drapes, get some white cushions for your sofa along with some colour.
My sister Elizabeth still has her husbands lumpy black leather sofa in their living room along with 2 black chairs and a black ottoman. They have small children (as you know) so are not in a hurry to replace them at the moment. Recently we went out, bought some white on white RIBBA frames for the living room walls, some white cushions (easy to wash and cheap) and it really added a fresh feel to the room. So bring in some white if you have a black sofa.
