I’m feeling inspired today by the colour and pattern combinations Bemz have pulled together for their latest story, Compact Living. I’ve blogged about Bemz last year but this new story inspired me even more than their last. If you’re new to this company let me quickly explain the concept: they offer a range of covers that fit a variety of IKEA furniture so you can personalise pieces to perfectly fit the decorating scheme you are working on. Clever, right? Perhaps it’s because this latest feature focuses on how to use colour and pattern in smaller spaces or maybe it’s because I’m just totally hooked on hue, but either way this combination of bold brights and striking stripes are doing it for me big time today. These covers show how you can introduce both strong hues and pattern into small rooms without it being overbearing – try a pink and white stripe fabric to make a feature out of a couch-meets-daybed solution, or why not cheer up the windows of your rental by knocking up some curtains? (I did this recently and see my curtain DIY, here.) Which Bemz furniture covers do you like best, friends? Have you ever updated IKEA furniture with a favourite fabric?
