The Summer Blues with Ikea

Why is it that every few weeks everyone in the Heart Home team heads off to their local Ikea to see what's new in store? And why is it that they can't come back empty handed? Must be something to do with the great products on offer. The budget friendly prices. And the fact that we just love them!

There's currently a great selection of blue and white porcelain. A classic summer colour combination if ever there was one. The designs are inspired by hand-painted tiles and mosaics and are just made for mixing and matching, especially with shots of intense cobalt blue.

We've also got our eyes on the denim cushions. Because after all, you can never have too many cushions. Use them in the garden or pack them in the car for impromptu visits to the beach.
