From my house it is quite the drive to Ikea, according to their directions it is 39.2 miles from my house. I live on the west side of town and Ikea is on the southeast side, so I have tons of town, freeways and traffic to battle to get there. Needless to say, I don't go all that often, but they had some things I really wanted to check out, so off I went.
First thing I spotted when I got there was this throw that I had been coveting, they had it thrown over a sofa as you enter. I saw it in the family room tour at City Farmhouse and fell in love. She said it came from Ikea, so I looked for it while I was there. You really need to see her familyroom, it is stunning.
Love the colors, grey, brown and a tiny stripe with rust. It will go with so much and I adore plaid.
Finding the throw and orb was just the icing on the cake, however the main reason for the trip was these drapes. I wanted to see the fabric first hand and make sure they were what I wanted.
Remember I showed you my idea board here, so this is just a little start. These curtains are going to be fabulous in my living room. I can't wait to start pulling that room together for a whole new look.
