We all know the famous product series IKEA PS 2012. What I found most inspiring is the visualization how the products could be incorporated in real homes. From big furniture to small accessories.
Here is some inspiration but the possibilities are endless. It is up to you and your imagination…
Nowadays we live differently than we used to. Kitchen and dining area is often a part of living area, rooms have more than just one function. Workspace/bedrom…living room/bedroom…kitchen/workspace…or a studio with just one room with all the functions. In traditional houses there is a hallway with rooms leading of it, in homes now sometimes we walk straight into a living room or a kitchen. We use more & more multi-functional, flexible furniture and we use different, sometimes very creative, storage solutions.
Ikea has a good choice of furniture, from traditional to modern and multifunctional. Regardless of how you live or what your style is, chances are that you will find something for yourself.
Growing up in Poland in the 80’s, I remember that in every home you could find the same furniture. There was a very small choice. Now every visit to Ikea makes me appreciate the choice there is and in how many different ways it is possible to furnish the same space. What I love about my visits to the showroom the most, are apartment-like spaces: “living on 23 m2, 35 m2, 55 m2”. It feels homely there, I stretch on the couch, try out the bed…
Lot of inspiration for our own home to personalize it to match our needs and our taste.
After all, home is a reflection of who we are, our personality.
Here are my favorite picks. Enjoy!
There is nothing which can replace a real book, magazine, a real brochure…not a downloaded PDF one. I can’t seem to be used to reading in Internet or on the smart phone although it would solve the storage problem, as I have a large collection of books & magazines, many about my passion – interior design. I like the smell of a newly purchased book or a magazine, play with the cover. Some books have even a structure to them like “Piet Boon 3” which is on my coffee table. So it’s that astethic look & feel (& smell) to it which ebook cannot replace.
And what is the best place to cuddle up with a good book/nice magazine and withdraw ourselves from the madness of our everyday busy life? At HOME…
I love travelling but the good thing about is knowing that you have your HOME to return to.
HOME is the base of everything. It is much more than just a nice looking place – it is our safe sanctuary which influences our happiness and even health.
I found the inspiration for this blog post in the calatog and website of an interior design & furniture company LINTELOO. Few years ago I was complaining that there are no good Dutch designers and the design never reached the Netherlands (to far from Milan maybe?). But I don’t think so anymore. I came to know some of the work of the Dutch designers & interior companies and I feel like it’s becoming one of the best in the world. Linteloo is a Dutch company based in Zeist.
Here are some photos that I find inspiring…for those who love color and for those who like neutral base.
Inspiration is the base of dreams and it keeps us going…
