My IKEA Family Live feature!

Heart palpitations at the ready. Back in July you may {or may not, I won’t be offended} remember I shot and submitted pictures of our apartment to IKEA after receiving some rather exciting e-mails from them asking me if I’d like to be a featured IKEA member for their IKEA Family Live online magazine. UMM, yes please with a körsbär on top. 
After some trials and tribulations {which by the way, I received a camera stand for my birthday, ha!}, I submitted all the pictures safe and sound and met my deadline. Sigh of relief. Then the waiting game went down. It wouldn’t be until November until I’d be featured {having submitted the photos in July}, but it was just enough time for the dust to settle and for me to get excited about it all over again!  

Me on the IKEA Family Live  homepage. No biggie. 

I know, slight overkill with the screenshots and whatnot, but how often do you see yourself on an IKEA website? Of course, to see the full feature, click on over here to read all about it and gawk at a couple more pictures of our apartment if you’d like 🙂 
And if you’re a fellow IKEA fiend and would like to also be a featured member, just send an e-mail on over to with a couple of pictures and details on your home! You know you wanna. xx A

    Cool, you got featured too. My home was featured too early in the Spring, the only disappointing thing is that I can no longer access it on their site as they just show 3 months at a time 🙁 Your home looks cool, very modern looking compared to my country cottage look.

    All things nice…

      I remember when your place was up on the site! I never realized they don't keep the features on the site. Sad face. I must remember to do some kind of magical website save before it's too late. Thanks for the heads up!

    Oh, I Gawked alright.
    That is pretty freaking cool! Imagine the traffic your page will get now!
    I feel like I know a celebrity.

      HA. I can smell the champagne and caviar lunches already …

      I think the photos look weird because so many little things have changed since I took those pictures. Good weird and good changes.

    Congratulations!! I remember you telling us in July – can't believe November has come around so quickly! Your place looks amazing.

      Really?! It seems so long ago for me. But then again I always find the second half of the year drags for me, big time. But I like the autumn and winter so I don't minds ^_^

    Oh, wow. I've just been creeping your apartment photos and they are so cool. Your living room is my favourite, I love that rug! And how you've tied the black and white together with the lamp, cushions and artwork. And, you already know how I feel about your bar cart. Swoon.

      Hahha, thanks Holly. It's crazy to look back at those pictures because our apartment has changed so much since! It's only been … 4 months, but I'm always moving shtuff around. And a lot I have yet to share 😉
