For the average joe/jane IKEA is a fabulous place to get trendy looking furniture for reasonable price. I have a love hate relationship whith this place, I hate the ques at the check out counter and love the fact I can get reasonable priced things. When that is said, you get what you pay for.
After a short to IKEA have I have purchased a few thisng to complete the apartement, 3 Isala cabinets for the dining area, a few cheap rugs, curtains, and a lamp shade for mummys old gren lamp
I got some sheer cotton curtains for the dining area and living room. I was contempating lift curtains in bleached linnen, but these are fine for now.
The two carpets I got is to protect the painted floors from wear and tear.
The carpets are temporary untill I find some that I really love, the black and white one is made of polyester, a material I wouldn’t choose normaly but for less than NOK 500 that one is still ok.
I have ambevalent feelings when it comes to shopping at IKEA, I cant’t seem to not go there if I need anything cheap and temporary, but hate the fuss, hustle and bustle of the place.
The appatrement is starting to look like home.
