Ikea is Always a Good Idea.

We haven’t made an Ikea trip in quiet some time but this Good Friday visit made up for our absence. Overtime I visit the big blue and yellow building I get inspired by all of the wares and the rooms that they have constructed. Since this is NYC, our Ikea transforms small spaces into a type of urban oasis. It gives new Yorkers an idea of ways to create tranquility out of the small spaces that we have to work with.

The bedrooms were light and airy and filled with white details. White gives the illusion of space and sparseness. Angelique and I thought that we would do a mini photoshoot and use Ikea as our backdrop, all while soaking in some of the details that were used to transform these spaces.

    It looks like the two of you had quite a blast at Ikea! The whole family has a great time whenever we go as well. I have dozens upon dozens of pictures in my phone of the rooms at Ikea, but never thought to have the family model for me! What a brilliant idea.

    PS I love your daughter’s name! πŸ˜‰

      Hey Angelique! I love your name as well πŸ™‚ I would love to see a post of your family posing as models in the Ikea rooms. Would be epic, plus you now have family photos instead of just Ikea room pictures.

      Haha @ “lurve”. You just made me laugh out loud. Yes, I agree, we have to start somewhere and pretending those Ikea kitchens are mine is my guilty pleasure as well.
