a classic in covet garden.


the latest issue of covet garden is available online, and it features a great classic home. it’s got somewhat traditional bones, but it’s also got some unexpected vintage treasures mixed with modern pieces. there’s even an IKEA PS cabinet in the mix — i swear that piece of furniture has to be one of the most versatile around (i’ve got one in my bathroom and we did this post about them a while back). but i digress — this home boasts a lovely, smoothing color palette of earth tones, neutrals, navy blues and pale grays and it all flows quite perfectly. for the full tour, visit covet garden — who by the way will be coming to print on magazine stands near you soon. i thought it would be fun to ‘get the look’, so here’s a few key pieces to get you started.


get the look: 1. vintage teak credenza from hindsvik; 2. IKEA PS LED lamp; 3. IKEA PS cabinet; 4. sukan turkish kilim pillows; 5. serena & lily tan moroccan pouf; 6. IKEA DOCKSTA table; and 7. IKEA KOLDBY cowhide rug.

  1. Lovely. I love the mix of modern and vintage…so much more homey and personalized, and less like something out of a home furnishing catalog.

  2. I love the look of this place – Clean and classic. I really like the cupboards and chest of drawers too. A great mix of modern and vintage :)

    have to laugh when i see all the furniture that is now in vogue…retro or niche…. i grew up with it …my step fathers aunt still had it right through her home in pristine condition …until she moved into a nursing home 5 years ago… her nephew probably took it all to the tip….
    so funny
    but i love it despite the fact it would not be good for me to have it in my very modern home…

  11. You might have convinced me to get the Ikea PS Cabinet. I thought it would look too ugly in my house, but it’s nice here!
