Swedish Styling in Central Louisiana: Ikea in our House!

When Holly and I went to our friend Katie's wedding in Northern Virginia, a big part of the weekend had to do with visiting Ikea. Since I was about to move, I couldn't really buy anything but I took some pictures and got some ideas for what I wanted to do once I did get to my new house.

Cute netural living room. I like light and dark stuff mixed together

This is Ikea's bedroom. I like all of the pillows and the gallery over the bed. Too busy? I kind of want something but I don't want to over do my bedroom!

Our current bedroom. Kind of plain but it's relaxing and clean!
This is what our kitchen looks like now. There's a funny space between the cabinets. I made this "picture". It's okay but I want something more interesting

This is kind of what I was thinking. Stainless steel to match the appliances. I don't want wood because I think that it would be too hard to match.

What are some of your favorite Ikea finds? 
Please be really, really, really excited that I finally got pictures to upload to Blogger!! Maybe I got to wait later on in the evening when all of the locals are asleep to upload my pictures!
