I’m finally ready to admit it…I’m obsessed with Ikea. Is there a group I can join? I know I’m not the only one. Thankfully we don’t have an Ikea near us, the closest is Sydney so it’s a 2.5hr drive and even that’s too close for someone with a serious addiction.
I just ducked down a few weeks ago (after scouring the website, app, book and instagram for inspiration so it was just a ‘spontaneous’ trip) to pick up one of the adorable play kitchens and now my living room looks like an Ikea catalogue! How does this happen?! That’s obviously a rhetorical question, I know how this happens….with their gorgeous displays, one way path forcing you past all the things you don’t need and that sense of urgency that if you don’t pick it up now you might not find it again (you tell yourself you can always put it back before the checkout, but we both know you’re taking the item home once it’s in your over-sized yellow bag).
The thing that gets me the most, is now I have the latest catalogue right next to my lounge I’m finding all these things I missed! All these things I now desperately need and I’m not sure how I’ve lived without them.
I think another trip is in order…just 1 more time…
My top 5 Ikea ‘essentials’ – if I go this is all I’ll get, I promise…..
