One Ikea Couch Styled 3 Ways
Ikea, Ikea, Ikea. Can you really get enough of that store? Ever? The answer is no. No, you cannot. The fact that I do not have an Ikea in the town I live in makes me slightly depressed, yet causes my husband some elation I am sure. I ordered from Ikea four times alone this summer, and that was me pacing myself…trust me.
Then I had a thought: I should design some mood boards using only Ikea items! You have no idea how much fun this was for me. Way too many joyful hours were spent on Ikea to create this blog post.
Now one of the things I love about Ikea is the versatility of their products! There are so many items that can be adapted to a variety of styles. So for these mood boards I chose one Ikea couch (only $600!) and designed three living rooms around it, all different styles: Scandinavian, Cottage, and Industrial.
And here they are! (Each item is sourced at the bottom of this post if you are interested in any of them or, if you’re like me, all of them).
Ikea Couch, Scandinavian Style
This Scandinavian style is becoming more and more popular in North America. It features clean lines, neutral colours, and natural wood in a tone-happy look. Throw some greenery in and you have the perfect modern, stylish, and minimalist Scandi look.
Ikea Couch, Industrial Style
Industrial style is hip, trendy, and modern. It can also be made to work in so many different ways: furniture styles can be mixed or traditional lighting can be blended with ultra-industrial room elements like concrete and exposed brick. This simple design brings in geometric patterns, clean lines, and iron-style furniture pieces.
Ikea Couch, Cottage Style
This cottage style is comfy, cozy, and cute! Rustic features, woven rugs, and floral and checkered patterns make this a popular style today. Accent pieces feature lots of colour and pattern to keep it fun and comfy. Easy to create, you basically just need a woven rug, a wood farm-style table, some oversized throw blankets, and some floral-patterened decor and voila!
