the ikea 2015 catalogue: favourite things

Aug 18, 2014 2:13pm

The IKEA 2015 catalogue just came out. For me, it’s like getting a new design magazine or something – so many styled rooms with great ideas and new products. I just love looking through it. Although I haven’t gotten my hands on a hard copy yet, I did take a look through the online version and pulled some of my favourite pages (you can access the online catalogue here for the US version, and here for the Canadian version).

This colourful headboard is tons of fun and would add a graphic punch to a mostly-white room.


It wasn’t one specific product in this next page, but the whole room that caught my eye. I like that the back wall is painted that deep gray, drawing your eye in, and the use of curtains was clever. If you had a bachelor apartment, this would be a great way to close off the bedroom section.


An orange shower fixture? So fun.


There are so many great kids things at IKEA. I love those green ombre gym mats, and that wood cabinet on the back wall could be customized with paint, wallpaper, chalkboard paint, etc.


If they had have had this crib when we bought Maya’s, I would have been tempted to get it – I love the colour, rounded edges, and drawers underneath.


I’m pretty positive that we will be using one of IKEA’s shoe cabinets when we move back into our house. Such a clever storage solution, and seems to come in various sizes these days. Also, that forest green coat rack is pretty rad.


The bookshelves in this room just did it for me. Don’t they add so much personality to the room? And I love the frames and things stacked up on the top shelf.


I love the loungy vibe of this next room. The white walls, raw beams, big windows (without window treatments), huge sectional, cushy rug.. don’t you just want to relax here and read a book?


Some clever paint ideas here. One is to paint the bottom half of the wall to create the effect of a chair rail or wainscotting – I especially love the contrast of the black and white. And the next is to do the tiled pattern on the floor. I’m also kind of dying for that green pendant for some reason. Just love the colour and scale.


I couldn’t believe the inexpensive prices on these beds that have very clever built in storage systems. SO brilliant – particularly for smaller houses.


This moodboard had me with the slightly grey-washed wood dresser, graphic rug, and hits of green. The emerald green seems to be getting trendier, hey? 11

One thing I know for sure? Some of those Ranarp light fixtures will definitely be making it into our home at some point. I am crazy for the matte white and brass combo.


And lastly some dinnerware. I like the blue + white set, but what I really fell in love with are those pink tumblers. Don’t they kind of feel like they belong in a diner? Maybe with a big milkshake?


Anything catch your eye in the 2015 catalogue? Do you love to browse through IKEA’s stuff like I do?
