Take-Away Design/Organizing Ideas from IKEA

On my last trip to IKEA I decided to take a few photos because I usually get a bit overwhelmed when I’m there and by the time I get to the warehouse section I’ve completely forgot what I liked or ideas I wanted to take home with me. Sound familiar? Here’s a few of the take away ideas I photographed that I wanted to remember for inspiration; from laundry room, entryway organizing to textiles – (I thought you might like to take a look too).  Check them out after the jump.

Above:  The Laundry Room – right now we have a side by side washer/dryer set up, like I think many do – but I really would like a sink to treat stains, hand wash sweaters or even just maybe to wash things I don’t necessarily want to wash in my bathroom sink or bathtub.  I also love the racks above the sink for drying things (that can’t go in the dryer); I most definitely like this idea for the laundry.  (Only thing missing, a dryer —stacking washer/dryer perhaps)?

    We totally need to organize or have a space like this (near the entryway - like the pros tell you to). Makes so much sense and keeps all the mail from being strewn about. This one's kind of clever - if you have kids, you totally need this. I'm thinking of one in an entryway closet, so I can just hide it away. But it's not bad out either (depends on your taste). Could be in the kitchen - a place to do homework.

    I also liked this roman blind idea. Looks so good with the wooden blinds behind it and the plants. I like the layers. Cosy.

    I've been eyeing the FINTORP cutlery stands for a while. I've bought one rod and the wire versions, which I still haven't hung yet as I'm a little unsure where, but I like these for storage of either herbs or cutlery. Want more.

    I love the look of the FINTORIP Wire Baskets - sort of old school.

    I loved how they covered this footstool in this floral fabric.

    Loving the floral ottoman and pillow cover fabric. Maybe a bit too feminine for the boys I hang out with, but still maybe a girls room, or dressing room?

    The EMMIE LAND toile duvet cover and pillowcases are rather pretty (again too pretty for us), but for $29 a budget-friendly way to update a bedroom for summer.

    I like all these frames (the placement) - because they're all white and the art is all photographs in the larger and art in the smaller.
