40 Farmhouse Favorites From IKEA

Today I’m sharing my 40 Farmhouse Favorites From IKEA after a successful shopping trip!

In addition to heading in to IKEA for our farmhouse favorites shopping trip, I also had a few things specifically on my list for our own home:

  • Linen Sheets that I’ve been wanting for a long time
  • White curtain for our fireside room
  • Pillows
  • Duvet
  • Baskets
  • Glassware with bamboo lids that the whole family uses for lunch
  • Desk chair
  • ..and of course the knowledge that I may walk out with 3x this much in new treasures.

One of the first things I noticed were the colors popping up for spring.

The new trends for this year include lots of black, whites and greens!

Dark hunter green is all the rage again, making a swift comeback from the 80’s. If the 80’s are still haunting you, try incorporating it as an accent wall or in green velvet furnishings.

Long curtain panels or a simple slipcover will give you a good pop of color without becoming a major investment or hassle to replace down the road.

Mustard yellow is another popular color I’m seeing for the season! Bring it in with sunflowers, slipcovers, pillow covers, and color pops in wall decorations.

If the words “hunter green” and “mustard yellow” are making you cringe, you can rest assured that the recent farmhouse all-over-white design is still going strong.

These are some of my Farmhouse Favorites:

Best Ikea Find for Farmhouse by sheholdsdearly.com

1) White Pitcher – The SOCKERART vase is something we keep coming back for! I love to use them as flower vases, but my kids have found they also make great scoops for chicken and rabbit feed.

2) Gray Storage Boxes – Some of my favorite multipurpose boxes! We use the KVARNVIK storage boxes in our living room, my office – anywhere there is clutter that might need to be put away out of sight at any given time. They come in multiple different sizes and have many different uses!

3) Plants – This FEJKA line of artificial plants makes for great fillers for any design arrangement.

4) Bamboo Trays for Drawers – I love using these VARIERA trays for my silverware, but also for my larger cooking utensils. The design and quality can’t be beat! And they come in all different sizes to make the best use of your space.

5) Wooden Hangers – These BUMERANG wooden hangers are great for spring cleaning! We can always use a few more.

6) Colander – These GEMAK metal colanders are my favorite, and they make a great wedding gift!

8) Linen Sheets – The PUDERVIVA sheets! Part of my original list. Glad to own a set of these now!

  • don’t forget to ride the escalator like buddy the elf,
  • bring your reusable Ikea shopping bags,
  • your shopping list, and come prepared for possible (and likely) impulse buys!
  • We also always finish off our trip with a lunch of swedish meatballs from the Ikea Food Court, but they also have a make-at-home version, the KOETTBULLAR if that’s more your speed.
