A Less Is More – Vase

I have a new fave vase that I can’t get enough of. All my fancy brand vases have been pushed aside for this simple, non expensive, versatile, handsome and modern model from Ikea! I use this Blomster vase all the time.

The roomy size (Diameter: 9 ½ “Height: 6 “), the shape and the color are all perfect and the height does not block out people on the other side of the table. Guess what – it is only $9.99! (Give your friend a vase + flowers in it – and you will be extra liked!). Each vase is hand blown and has been shaped by a skilled craftsman.

I particularly like it with a monochromatic flower color scheme. Even your average, less expensive flowers all of a sudden look costly in this handsome vase.

Ikea + Lovely Rugs = True

Being a Swede, IKEA is of course part of my DNA. EVERYBODY in Sweden, including the Royal Family, make special runs to that giant store for lovely things at Oh-So-Low prices. And for us Swedes abroad, Ikea also satisfies our Swedish fix by offering delicatessen and salty liquorice! (This is offered everywhere except at Ikea in Sweden!)

I did my special run yesterday, and I have to say that Ikea right now has some really wonderful rugs. The following ones caught my attention:

Top from the left: Beata, $299, Andrea Rund, $299, Jorun $299

Bottom from the left: Hedda, $249, Trampa Door Mat, $12.99, Kibak, $149
