A few weeks ago my husband, brother-in-law, and I made our way down to IKEA to pick up a sofa for my boss. It’s a 3-hour journey one way and isn’t a trip we make often but I really do not mind since IKEA is chock-full of inspiration and wonderful displays – I could spend days there, really. Since we were making this special trip I made sure to bring a little list of wants, this lamp being one of them. As we made our way through the store I found myself being drawn to the more simple + modern pieces, which in the past, was not really my style but now, I cannot seem to get enough! West Elm, Urban Outfitters, and IKEA have been some of my favorite places to shop and pull inspiration from. We are pretty close to having our space near complete and I hope to show it on the blog sometime after the new year (still waiting on a few items for our living room and have one or two diy’s in the works), otherwise more to come real soon!

On a short side note, I wanted to let you all know that I will be taking a mini blog vacation for the remainder of the year to celebrate the holidays with my family + friends. The winner of the one year subscription to Kinfolk will be announced on Monday, so if you entered, be sure to check back to see if you are the lucky winner! And, if you haven’t had a chance to enter yet, there are many ways you can (you can view all of the details here). So friends, I will be seeing you all in the new year and have a safe + lovely holiday!!
