Has it been years since any noticeable change has been made to your home? Then let us inspire you to shake things up.

Introduce some novelty to your abode, redecorate your surroundings and have some fun with it — an excuse to celebrate the little pleasures in life isn't necessary.

You don't need a home cinema or top-of-the-line espresso machine to make your home look ridiculously good, simply splatter slick items around the place that will add some much-needed colour and character to an otherwise drab living space.

Invite some friends over for a casual celebration and surprise them with some brand new IKEA decor, such as...

SÄRDAL — €3.50

Bring a warm ambiance to your living areas with these LED lighting chains, offering a soft glow that you just want to bask in.

Pick one up HERE.

Sardal Hi Res

Jar sold separately


Or perhaps you'd prefer genuine candlelight to add some atmosphere (and maybe even romance) to your lounge area, in which case you'll be wanting this four-pronged candelabra. 

Pick one up HERE.

Parlband Hi Res

Candles sold separately


A plant is a great way to add some vibrancy to any room, not to mention more oxygen, but remembering to water the thing can be a problem.

That's why this self-watering plant pot is simply perfect for all you amateur botanists of the forgetful variety.

Pick one up HERE.

Sotcitron Hi Res

VÅGRÄT — €2.50

If you're having friends round for a spot of tea, they'll adore this contraption.

This little tea infuser floats in your mug or glass, allowing you to avoid spillage and minimise mess.

For those times you want to look fancy in front of your guests.

Garnera Hi Res

HOPPVALS — From €23

Make your home a little more cosy and inviting with these blinds.

Their honeycomb structure creates an added layer of insulation for the room, keeping your kitchen the perfect level of toasty.

Hoppvals Hi Res

GRILLA — €13

This pan is a godsend for the culinarily challenged, making cooking for guests so much easier.

It comes with spouts that allow you to easily pour out excess grease and its thick base helps prevent food from burning or sticking. It's positively foolproof!

Grilla Hi Res


Your well read friends will appreciate this compact bookcase, complete with glass doors, where you can show off your impressive library.

You pretty much have to start a regular book club if you own one of these.
