I can't think of many things more fun than heading up to IKEA with one of my best people, my friend Christy.

I featured most of the pictures in the organizing ideas post, but I have some new ones today. Living Areas: Serenity Now: IKEA Shopping and Home Decor, Fall 2012.

Please bear with the iPhone pics, but I just had to show you some of the awesomeness I spotted on our little IKEA shopping trip. (Not a sponsored post...I just love some cute Swedish stuff) One very positive thing I noted in the new catalog and also in the showroom was that the IKEA designers not only offer ideas on ways to "hack" their pieces, but there also seemed to be more accessorizing than usual. I noticed more of the smaller, inexpensive "extras" from the marketplace scattered about the showroom.
