Celebrate your youth (with a mix of old and new)

Celebrate your youth (with a mix of old and new)

What’s more worthy of a celebration than the end of school (and the start of summer)? See how you can make it happen by turning everyday items into their festive alter egos.

There’s a club in the family garage

Look at your practical old things from the right angle, and they suddenly take on a whole new meaning. Like letting your garage or basement become a party venue, and a laundry basket a bar.

Capture the moment in style

No party is complete without a proper way to document guests looking their best. Hang vanity lighting around a mirror, bring out your chicest accessories, and your photo booth is in session.

Not your ordinary eight-arm chandelier

So what if your party isn’t in a glitzy hall? Add a bit of glamour with what’s already there. Chandeliers made from hang dryers and lighting chains even include a place to hang fresh photos.

“Let your imagination run free. Look around with a different perspective, and you will spot opportunity everywhere: familiar things that are just waiting to be used in new ways – and maybe in a more glamorous context.”

Kristina Pospelova, IKEA interior designer

An empty corner turned cosy hang-out

A dance floor becomes even better with a spot for unwinding and socialising. Use seats from your outdoor furniture, add some more comfy textiles, mood lighting and refreshments, and mellow out.
