Spotted: Ikea [Brakig]

Todays find is almost so good that I didn’t want to share it. With my serious double lust over geometrics and pastels, I was in near heaven when I saw the new (limited edition) Brakig collection by IKEA. The result of a collaboration between IKEA and ArtRebels, it’s bang on trend.

The range is only available in-store (Boo!) which is good news in some ways as my immediate thought was that it would instantly become ubiquitous and I’d be so disappointed. The range is wide with everything from storage boxes and trays to textiles, furniture and wallpaper.

Did I mention the wallpaper? I’m currently considering a geometric design for one of our bedrooms and its not a million miles away from the Brakig white background multi-triangle design. I won’t say how much the design I was coveting is per roll, but I will tell you that IKEA’s version is yours for five whole english pounds. And whilst it doesn’t look handprinted, it isn’t thin or flimsy or shiny either.

I’m now wondering if I should have snapped some up – I certainly didn’t realise it was limited edition or in-store only at the time. But then, there’s always a reason to go to IKEA right?


Geometric Eclectic: Part 2

This morning I finally bring you part 2 of my latest obsession… Geometrics. (For Part one check out this stunning wallpaper and furniture covering yesterday.) For any other round up, with the debacle that was going on behind the scenes on Sunday night, I might have abandoned the whole thing by now, but hopefully the dogged determination it’s taken to bring you this post highlights how much I love it. I’ve also got a lot personally invested in this particular trend… watch this space for something new and exciting that I’m working on and hope to reveal very soon!

In the meantime, I give you geometrics in the worlds of fashion, interiors and design talent. Enjoy!
