Fresh home furnishing ideas and affordable furniture - IKEA

Style with purple

Colour is an excellent way to give your home a boost. Right now we have a crush on purple. (No need to turn your home into an art installation. We also give a few tips on how to mix, match and decorate with colours.)

Use colour to build bridges

A colour theme can do good in any home. Use it to set a mood or create an effect. Or build a bridge. Do you have curtains and and chairs in different colours? Paint your wall in a third colour that’s right in between, binding it all together.

Then again, colour isn’t everything

Colours go a long way towards connecting objects into a uniform expression. But there’s more to it. The look and feel of materials are very useful. Combine matte and shiny finishes – like flower petals and ARV plates – to create a beautiful contrasting effect.

We love to see our customers get creative with our products. Go for it! But please note that altering or modifying IKEA products so they can no longer be re-sold or used for their original purpose, means the IKEA commercial guarantees and your right to return the products will be lost.
