cozy up with ikea.

i was at ikea this week and scored this awesome book of theirs, beloved homes (it was a mere $7.99!). A book about nine much-loved homes in the Scandinavian style, beloved homes shares home tours with wonderful ideas incorporating ikea furnishings and accessories filled with character. From a tiny but clever apartment to a sprawling eighteenth-century house, there’s some great ideas here. i’m curled up in bed, reading it now, so i thought i’d take you along. Welcome to beloved homes by Stina Holmberg, and photographs by Stellan Herner and including sweet illustrations by Klas FahlĂ©n.

    Yes, a true OG follower here. I’ve looked for that book off and on since seeing it on your blog then. Looks like a trip to Emeryville’s in store… No chance you bought an extra or 2, is there?
