It’s no secret that I would move into an IKEA showroom given half the chance; my love for IKEA is that strong. What has made me even more smitten with the place is their recent mission to encourage us all to make time for living. You know, put the phone down, step away from the email and let something magical happen. Are you up for the challenge?
Apart from the gorgeous Stockholm collection and their amazing new kitchen showroom, one of the big things to come out of the IKEA event I attended last week was their announcement to focus on the family for 2014. Living with kids was a large part of this focus. So, dear parents, this one's for you; a look at five fabulous kids room ideas from IKEA that will make rooms for the little ones are fun for them and still easy on the eye for you. (This is just like an episode of Super Nanny but without the naughty spot!).
Jayde Leeder is one busy gal. Not only is she a mother to two little ones (six-year-old Iggy and 14-month-old Minty - who Jayde tells me suffers from FOMO and thinks she’s 27), but she co-owns my fave store for all things stationery, Little Paper Lane, in the Sydney suburb of Mona Vale. I sat down with the former makeup artist and learnt a few things about stationery, running a family business and her hatred of tomatoes!
