Ikea Family Live

Have you heard about Ikea Family Live?  It’s sort of like Houzz, but with a personal twist.

First spotted via Vintage Simple after she posted this homey image:

I’ve been quite smitten since.

Instead of “Idea Books”, they have “Home Stories”, where people take you into their own homes and share the process of designing them.

Like the family above, who converted an old school into their house.  Read their “Home Story” here.

I’ve always had a thing for European design sensibilities.

Mixed with the fact that I’ve been in love with Ikea forever…

Ikea Family Live is a smorgasbord of inspiration for me.

  7. Thanks Rie - why does it always seem us 'westerners' are one step behind Europe? So clever of Ikea and closer in reality to most folks whereas Houzz features are a bit unattainable. Great post.

  12. I love that too. I learned about it when another blog I follow had her house actually featured in it. It's full of rooms to dream about.
