There is nothing wrong with IKEA furniture, I have a few pieces throughout my home which I really love.
The secret though is mixing it with other items and making it look expensive rather than a shrine to the flat pack purveyors!
Take my bedroom for example, this was the first bedroom we decorated when we got married, so we were a tad low on cash. In the past year I’ve added in more pieces to dress it up.
My bed is from Laura Ashley, ivory in colour and rather ornate so I use it as my key bedroom piece and change up the colour with various bed linen or scatter cushions. The rest of the larger furniture in the room is from IKEA.
Soft furnishings and knick knacks are a great way of switching things up without spending a fortune!
I hope you enjoyed seeing how I incorporated IKEA into my bedroom. The aim in the future is to get more antique style pieces moved in whilst keeping the space fresh and interesting.
