    Seen in the Ikea 2016 Catalog

    I just had a chance to click through Ikea’s 2016 catalog and was so impressed. Appropriately titled “It’s the Little Things that Matter,” it’s full of fantastic new decorative items with tons of style.

    In addition to new items, the catalog is a great source of decorating inspiration.

    Over the Rainbow

    I’m surprised by how much I like these multi-colored resin nesting tables from Antropologie. Maybe it’s the subtle hues that make them work for me. Available in small and large, $300-$750 each plus 20% off with code SALEAWAY.

    Ikea Brommo Chaise

    I ran across this Brommo Chaise from Ikea on Pinterest and was immediately smitten. It’s an outdoor chair, but I could totally see bringing a pair inside. Even better, they’re only $60 a piece. It’s not available for purchase online and I could only find it in stock in a handful of stores. Hopefully they’ll get more in stock soon.

    Cheap Ways to Make Stuff Look Expensive

    Buzzfeed has compiled a great list of Ikea hacks that make inexpensive pieces look like they cost a pretty penny. Above, an Ikea kitchen cabinet laid on its side and topped with wood from trendsender.

    A simple paint update for an inexpensive Ikea step stool from Bloglovin.

    My personal favorite is this jute cord update for the Foto pendent from design sponge. There are over 30 ideas on Buzzfeed’s list – many for pieces you may already have at home.

    As the owner of both a taxidermy pheasant and a cat, I can’t tell you how much I need this Atrium Display Cabinet from CB2. Peace of mind for the low low price of $429.

    Steal of the Week: Assembly Home Midcentury Vanity

    I love the unusual mirror on this Assembly Home Midcentury vanity. The mirror can also be hung on the wall, but I think the wooden support is what makes this piece so interesting. $230 at Urban Outfitters.

    Office Supplies

    Curbly has a great tutorial for updating an old metal filing cabinet. I run across these at garage sales all the time and they seem so handy, but they’re usually so ugly. It’s nice to see how one could be transformed with some paint and a little elbow grease.
