Guess Who?

Guess who put together this amazing booth at the Interior Design Show in Toronto?



Any guesses?



You’ll never guess…





IKEA! I’m serious!

I had to look twice to believe my eyes (especially the kitchen and bath!) Pretty awesome display of what you can do when you mix lots of budget items with a few well placed higher end ones. Also, who doesn’t love a good Ikea hack?? Here are a collection of great ideas of how to dress up simple pieces from the big box store and make them into statements.  I did a good one in my bedroom- but you’ll have to wait for the book to see (sorry!)

    I thought I’d scroll down to read that you were responsible for this gorgeousness. Those fuchsia and lime rugs are killer. Is that really gold tile in the fourth picture?!

  2. Whoa, those chandeliers in the kitchen….fancy wancy.

    Was totally there – even more beautiful in person! Who would have thought?!!

  7. That dresser hack is awesome! I actually own that dresser, and it has been nothing but trouble for me since day 1. The drawers keep falling off the sliders, it madness!!

  8. So gorgeous! Ikea is really upping their game. I’ve always loved everything I’ve gotten from there (except wine glasses which broke if you looked at them). CAN’T WAIT FOR YOUR BOOK!

  15. Stacy says:

    The rugs are Ikea too??? Did they do the girls room settee as a custom piece – that can NOT be Ikea, right?

  16. Go Ikea! That kitchen is stunning. You can’t go wrong with a chandelier.

  17. Nanne says:

    Wow, that’s amazing! I’d never guessed in a million years :)

  18. Suzanne says:

    This is amazing, I really like IKEA for some less expensive options for larger pieces, but I never thought to dress them up as you did. Nice!!

    Hey Erin, I just wanted to comment that ever since you disabled readers’ ability to read your posts in feedly (or required that a reader click through), I haven’t been able to enjoy your blog :( I don’t know what the decision was based on (I’m not a blogger so I don’t know how feedly impacts you), but it’s a bummer for me. I can see your posts and pics in feedly perfectly but when I click through to your website I can sometimes get text but have to wait until it times out usually for pictures. I am always looking from my phone because I stay at home with my girls and don’t have much time to sit at a computer! :)

    I adore your blog and was a daily reader, so just my two cents. Thanks.

    Wow that was a surprise. I like Ikea but you tend to think they have a limited style…Guess I was wrong : )
