took a drive down to the ikea in red hook, brooklyn today. it was a lot less complicated to get there and i was pleasantly surprised to see how much bigger the place is compared to the one in long island! i fell in love immediately! sorry hicksville, it looks like BK’s got my heart.

the showrooms were hipper, the space was vaster.. and even the food was better.

Mr. KOm and I made a trip to 2 of BK’s flea markets today. Loved Thr sights of all the lovely things and all the lovely people. Will definitely be making more trips on over after our big move.

Some highlights of the trip:

artwork of the brooklyn bridge on some driftwood. we bought this piece to put in our apartment to remind us of how Mr. KOm proposed! love that it’s printed on a piece of wood.. the photo definitely does not do it justice.

the above accent table was probably one of my favorite pieces in the whole place. can’t see from the photo, but it looks somewhat like this:

LOVE!!! it was selling for about 300 beans but similar items online are sold at places like anthropologie for 600. maybe, just maybe when we get all our stuff settled in we can go back and track it down……
