A mega fan of Ikea’s fake plant situation, Stacey was thrilled by the extended Fejka range. The star has been using Ikea’s amazing fake foliage to add a bit of an outside inside theme to her home and these gorgeous rose coloured blooms – or Blomstervagen as the product is known – are perfect for the stars new pink utility room. The star ended up pinking up some of the new pink flowers for her room, and we don’t blame her it’s far too tempting.
Next on Stacey’s shopping haul was more pink perfection and the fact that Stacey now has a gorgeous girly space in a house full of boys is great for the star who can fill it with plenty of cute pink things. Picking up a pink vase and a pink potted cactus, Stacey is really good at injecting plenty of greenery into her home to make it feel like a calm and relaxing space.
Adding more Fejka to her ever growing collection, Stacey loved the little on trend rattan pot the fake ivy came in and we can’t blame her, this season is all about wicker accessories and homeware.
Oak Kallax storage cube, £17 each, Ikea (available in six colours)
Showing fans the actual reason for her trip, Stacey had headed to Ikea to pick up some storage for Rex’s room. Stacey went to pick up the infamous Kallax box squares – a fixture in many homes across the country, with Stacey opting for oak squares and white storage boxes. The Kallax are such a great piece of storage for all age groups.
Clearly with another budding DIY project on the go, Stacey told fans that she was going to do something with the chair cushions she had picked up although didn’t seem to entirely know what yet. However judging from Stacey’s previous home improvement projects we knew we would love it and want to copy it instantly.
Storage bag, £7, Ikea – We can’t find the exact match but this is pretty close.
Stacey also picked up these fab storage bags, great for toys or throws and they’re so incredibly stylish. We totally get why Stacey loves Ikea so much (we do too!) The polka dot print is bang on trend and they’re so neutral they’ll work in whichever room you want.
Having thrilled fans with a running commentary of her Ikea buys, Stacey took to Instagram the next morning to put together her Kallax boxes before showing off the final result in Rex’s room. Using the Kallax boxes as both storage and seating – using the grey cushion covers as the seats was simply inspired and just one of the many reasons we just can’t get enough of Stacey’s DIY interior projects at the moment.
