Well, this isn’t exactly part of the 3 Chinese New Year special features I have in mind, but it fits right in, so it’s the bonus feature I guess! 😀 So far I’ve got your stomach and style covered, now we’re onto dressing up your home for CNY! 😉
As you probably know by now, this year IKEA’s teamed up with a few bloggers, myself included for a special blogger program with special tasks each month. This month, it’s all about redecorating your living room and I’ve decided to do so before CNY! 🙂
Now, check out how my living room looks like before the new decorations come in:
Simple, cream, white and blu-ish coloured decor.
Check out the IKEA decor (except for the two pineapple lanterns, hahaha) I brought home with me! Special thanks to Lionel for accompanying and sending these back with me HAHAHA. 😀
This is how my living room looks like after! When I sent the photos to my close friends, they like how colourful, vibrant and festive it looks! 😀
Putting the before and after photos side by side, for comparison:
Items featured include: Solymys Lantern in White, $14.90, Vintermys Unscented Block Candle in Red, $6.90. Love the weave pattern on it, so pretty.
I bought white because I like how classic and simple it is. I also specially went to google to check that there’s nothing inauspicious about white lanterns, white means health and red means prosperity guys! 😉Featured in this photo are 3 batches of IKEA Pussy Willows in Pink, Purple and Red, $6.90 each. So super affordable! The cylinder glass vase,$34.90.
Knappsave Cushion with festive prosperous pineapple at $9.90. Craftholic Bear in Pineapple print is a gift from my bestie. <3
You might want to get some cheery flowers and colourful assorted decorations like I did for my coffee table. 🙂
Items featured include 7pcs of Smycka Art Flowers 45 at $3.90 each, Ensidig Vase 18 at $1.90, Rotera Lantern at $7.90, Sinnlig orange scented candles at $4.90 for a pack of 30, plus a really super cute bird Barbar Tray 33x at $9.90
Cute hor? >U<
Also featuring Fantastisk Napkins in Yellow and Orange, $3.90 each These are fabulous quality napkins, guys.
Pssst, grab these cute floral and fish ice trays at $1.90 each only! Fish stands for 年年有余, meaning there’s always excess, while flowers stand for 花开富贵, prosperity blossoms. Isn’t it wonderful?
Happy shopping at IKEA loves! Thanks IKEA for the gift card so I can pick out these wonderful new goodies for my home. <3
