Ikea Shopping List

For those of you who have had an Ikea in your city for years, you won’t understand the excitement.  Raina and I have had plans to go to the grand opening for months.  Then, last week, I came up with a better plan:

Thanks to an awesome friend and former co-worker, I got the hottest ticket in town,  the pre-opening super secret friends and family day.  If you look in the bottom left corner, you will see it is good for a carload.  I, of course, included Raina.  Hopefully, they will allow photography and we can let you in on the scoop tomorrow after the awesomeness.

In order to be prepared for the pandemonium that might surround us, I came up with a shopping list:

$9.99, sort of Jonathan Adler-ish

$19.99 - I have long needed a covered cake dome. I would prefer something antique, this one would work just fine.

$1.49 - popsicle makers

$14.99

$5.00 - I'm hoping these can fit on my dining room chandelier. It is in need of a bit of excitement, some shades in a funky scale should do it.

I need a new runner for my entryway. This one has been used everywhere, but @ $34.99, it can live at my house until I am tired of it.

Can’t wait to post about the newest design/meatball destination in Denver.

About sanctuaryhome

The Sanctuary Home blog was created in May 2009 to augment my interior design business, Jamie Foley Interiors. Below is the design philosophy that guides my business and this blog. A beautiful house isn’t a home unless it speaks to its occupants and fits their lifestyle in appropriate and unique ways. I believe that design can be approached in two ways. The first is from the gut, what feels right. The second is from a logical methodical perspective. I design using the second approach. I feel that having a reason why a piece is selected, having similar elements in the room or throughout the home makes it feel unified even if the similarities are not obvious to the casual observer. It makes a home feel special and contemplative. Building the interior of a home is a process. I create a plan for investment pieces that will last a lifetime, filling in with less expensive, less important pieces that can be replaced when they wear out or look dated with additional investment pieces or of the moment trendy items that update the home. Using vintage or antique pieces with new grounds a home. If everything in a home is new, it feels like a model home, it has no soul. If you use all old pieces, if feels like you live in a garage sale. The beauty is in the mix. Creating timeless interiors involves using pieces from all design styles. It gives the home a layered look and allows a home to look as if the pieces have been acquired over time. Using furniture from all one style or period makes a home look fussy and intimidating. I look forward to working with clients with all budgets and design aesthetics to create a home that special to their family. I encourage clients to express their individuality throughout the entire design process, this ensures your home fits your needs and will delight you every time you walk through the door.
