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.

How cool is that? Love love love it!

For the love of Spring

Happy April!!

In the spirit of spring, finally put my Ikea planter to good use by arranging our purchases from the flower market in it . We added the 3 new plants and 1 barely alive one that we already have at home. Try as I might, can’t seem to keep plants alive. What’s the secret??? Well… Can’t go wring with succulents,…. Right?
