Oh Ikea, how I love thee. And I wasn’t even paid to say that!! Arion and I made the trek out to Brooklyn a few weekends ago to check out the new-ish Ikea. I was giddy with excitement and Arion didn’t really get it until we arrived…
It’s a showroom for kings! I love going through every room and seeing how things are organized (shocking) and put together with colors and patterns and awesome-ness. I was running around like a little kid in a toy store… although I do tend to run around in toy stores, too 😉 twenty-nine, shwenty-nine!!
Anyway, we were there for hours. I dragged Arion around to every “room” and we talked about all the things we want when we design our dream house one day: kitchen cabinets, furniture design, rugs, and even layered window treatments.
Speaking of windows, I decided we needed new curtains for our bedroom to add a little adult-hood to the current blackout shades.
Enter Lenda curtains:
And not on the initial list, but deemed a necessary purchase: A new frame for the finger painting I received from Wes for my birthday:
So it was a very successful trip to fantasy-land and as soon as I can trick Arion, we’ll be there for another glorious Sunday.
