IKEA'S Festive & Textural Living Room

Livet Hemma | Photography by Patric Johansson
Oh, be still, my beating heart! What a calm, cosy and refreshing living space this is from the folks over at IKEA. I'm inspired by their use of rugs as additional textiles for the sofa - such a great way to add extra layers of texture. The simple red runner used on the sofa lifts the pared-back scheme, as well as adding a dash of festivity. The reclaimed shipping palettes give the room an organic feel, echoed in the bud branch placed in a simple, glass jar - an ideal way to add gentle festivity to a space. What's inspiring you about this living room, folks?

  11. It's so funny because I have this pre-made thought about IKEA, and then I see their stuff and love it! I guess it's changed a lot since I was last in there in 2003. Haha!

  17. The rag-rugs are sooo Swedish, in every home they used to weave their own from old clothes and fabric leftovers. They more or less dissappeard in the middle of the 20th Century, but now they are seriously back in fashion. There are companies selling old rag-rugs sewn togehter to make big carpets (as I'm sure you have seen) and they do not sell them cheap!

    The kitchentowels that the pillowcases are made of is also very traditional in style, even though this is a very cheap version. My mother weaved her own kitchentowels in white with some red stripes and then embroidered her initials on them in the same red yarn.
