a new year and another ikea wishlist

Has it really been that long? We redecorated the living/dining room shortly after the arrival of our new sofa and chair. Found the perfect green wallpaper, attempted to hang it ourselves, gave up and hired a decorator! We purchased and painstakingly (thanks to my many errors when reading the instructions) assembled the expedit TV unit, which fits lovely into our alcove ... even though I had that moment of panic that it wouldn't fit, despite taking many measurements. We took a break for Christmas, in which we had most of our family across the threshold. And Mark started a fantastic new job.

It feels like I am just about getting my motivation to renovate the house back ... still to do is the kitchen, we mended and have made do up to now but it is still driving me mad! And on the list of 'things to do' are the bathroom and one of our guest bedrooms (not that we have a grand mansion with 8 guest rooms, we have 2 but we did the other one just over a year ago).

About ikea then ... I was a meeting for most of the day, but thankfully the venue was right around the corner from ikea. I thought it would be rude not to go and have a look. And judging by all the new things, it must have been around the same time as my last post that I was last there! With this in mind, I thought it was the best opportunity to update my (ever growing) ikea wishlist.

I immediately fell in love with the olunda alphabet picture, the structure is really good with some of the letters being raised from the background. Now where to hang?

The PS Sticka blanket would be a welcome addition to our room as it is still very cold here! It is photographed beautifully at doorsixteen. Another favourite was the edland bedroom series, in particular the dressing table. I love the classic shape updated with a matt grey finish.And now to the not so new, I would love one or two of the ung drill frames for our room.
