I'm a huge fan of IKEA and all the effort that goes into styling the room sets that you see when you pay a visit there, and I could quite happily take up residence in one of those rooms sets, but lets face it, when it comes to our own interiors, unless you are completely obsessive about them, chances are you don't have every item in your home from the fab Swedish store, and this is why I love the LIFE AT HOME website, I like to see true to life styling tips that can be used in our own homes with the stuff we already have, plus some carefully selected IKEA items, because while I love those rooms sets you see in store, I want my Ikea purchases to blend in with my home, and hopefully reflect my tastes as well. I love the relaxed styling in the photos below, (styled by bloggers and stylist I know),
but we all have little piles of clutter and books around the home that would benefit from a little styling.

I love how stylist Pella Hedeby has topped off a little pile of books with a small side lamp, and added some fairy lights gently draped over the clip board, then placed a selection of items together in the bowl to keep them all together, a home for everything.

In this photo above styled by Frida Eklund Edman, I just love the collection of twigs and feathers in a glass vase, so simple yet so eye catching.
