Top 5 Ikea Essentials

A few weeks back I went to Ikea to grabs a few things. As I was checking out I realized that everything in my jumbo size cart was white. The more I think about it everything I buy at Ikea is white or very plain. I think Ikea is a great source for basics. So here is my list of things to buy at Ikea:

Down and Feather Pillows-FJÄDRAR, EKTORP and GOSA TULPAN Inner cushions

I have to resist from buying the store out of these. They come in few different sizes-20″ x 20″, 16″ x 24″, 26″ x 26″, boudoir/neckrolls as well as standard pillow size. The Gosa Tulpan Pillow is great as well; these are great for on window seats but especially for European Shams on the bed. I picked up a pair of these for a client’s monogrammed shams.
