Coastal Cottage Accents at Ikea!

That's right, Ikea, which is known primarily for its Scandinavian and Sleek Modern decor pieces has LOTS of furniture and accent pieces for your coastal cottage!

I recently popped into an Ikea to pick up some white curtains for my master bedroom and living room. Their mosquito netting curtains were perfect and I was able to outfit my six windows for a total of $30.00! Each window panel comes in a 110" width with 118" length. This over-sized fabric makes it easy to create beautiful pools of fabric for a romantic cottage feel.

Our new Ikea curtains really give a romantic & coastal feel to our living room!
Of course, I had to look around and was surprised to see numerous furniture pieces which would create a divine coastal cottage feel.  If you've never visited Ikea then I highly suggest you do...plan a day to slowly peruse all of their showrooms.

  1. One can spend an entire day there but I've learned not to go on a weekend. Like some of the freestanding closets but they are too tall for our older home. Like the curtains.

  2. I love Ikea!!!! Hopefully planning a trip this fall to our nearest one!!! These pictures make me really excited!!

  3. Oh I L-O-V-E Ikea!! Love the glass topped accent tables.

  4. Wonderful Marie!

    As a swede I appreciate this a lot.Ingvar Kamprad founded IKEA in Sweden and today they are well knowed world wide for their quality furnitures.

  5. IKEA rocks! Gotta have their meatballs in the cafe. I could spend all day there, testing out couches and chairs, gazing at the great artwork and people watching.

    Great blog!

  6. Ikea is my second home. I have the white bed and the lamp in the last photo is in my kitchen. You could go crazy and I have decorating with Ikea's great furniture and accessories.
