When you move, there’s always things you need. Or want. So today, Mom and I took a trip to Ikea.
I always feel like a kid in a theme park when I go to Ikea. I take the long route through the entire store.
Look at everything, play with things, try out stuff. Mom is less fond of the place, but she goes along with me. And occasionally tries out a chair.
We also always eat in the restaurant. It’s not a true Ikea trip without meat balls or chicken sate. Plus I love the parking spaces for the shopping carts.
I got a tall black-brown vase for the front window sill and coloured sticks to put in it. Also candle sticks, a basket, two small trash bins, a poster frame and various small knick knacks.
This trip also served as an inspiration trip for things I (might) want later on. The red flower wall sticker would match the reddish accent colour I have planned for the dining area very nicely. I don’t know if I’ll end up with the actual wall space for it. That depends on what kind of cabinet of sideboard thing I get for that area and where I put it exactly.
The living room needs a hanging lamp to replace the current ceiling light. That one is too small for the scale of the room and has no personality. I’m looking for something that evokes nature but is still fairly smooth. I’m not looking for something to hold dust 😀
I also want (and need) extra storage in the bathroom. I’m looking into bamboo as a main colour/material and this rack would be ideal above the toilet. Unlike the other house, the tank of the toilet hasn’t been hidden in a low wall that I can use instead.
