I made a quick trip to IKEA a few days ago to pick up some tealights and see if there was anything new and exciting.
I swear if had 4 boys or more I would definitely want this set up! I would paint the beds navy blue, add ticking curtain panels and go to town on the bedding! Unbelievable space saver and so much fun!
I always leave with something whether it's a great idea, an IKEAism, or in this case, some wonderful new rugs!
I found some great striped cotton runners for my long hallway and a zippy striped rug for my kitchen that have already put me in the mood for Summer!
I don't know about you, maybe it's the fact that I live in sunny California, but shortly after the holidays are over I find myself with Spring Fever that soon leads to visions of Summer!
I love the colors of these stripes, it really picks up the colors in my beach painting now hanging in the adjoining family room.
I have a really long hallway that jags 2/3rds of the way down so I'm thinking of sewing 2 of these runners together for the longest stretch.
They are not ideal on top of carpet but they give a such a relaxed beachy feel to the space and will help keep the carpet from getting dirty. One day we will replace it with the same tumbled marble that is in the entry and powder room.
I'm getting ready to hang some family photos and art down this hallway...
(I need to re-hang the top picture, it fell down the other night! It's those Command strips!)
It's beginning to look a lot like summer!
