IKEA Console, Styled

So, the response was almost unanimous on yesterday's post. Most of you really loved the color and modern lines of the IKEA console. I myself am on team IC.

Which reminded me of one of the places I first fell in love with the potential of said console. Did you catch the Matters of Style post where MoS Charlotte showed us how the console spiced up her den?

I l-o-v-e these pictures....the styled console and the curtains are fantastic.

A wonderful accent to this room, don't you think? 

You will never go wrong with the straight, Parsons-ish lines of a piece like this table. Especially when mixed with more traditional elements. And this table could be a potential DIY, either to purchase and paint to a color that suits, or to recreate yourself (though, for time and materials, I doubt you'll beat IKEA's price of $80, though a handmade one might be better quality).

Thanks for your comments on Kimber's dining room - glad so many of you enjoyed it! There is one more board coming from her house...stay tuned.


  1. I am using the vintage plume in a room right now. LOve it! That console looks fabulous!

  2. What a great room. That console really add the right about of fun.Would you ask what the curtain fabric is? Loving those two.

  3. Wow! I love it - I've been thinking about what to do with my living room, which is pretty, but kind of blah; I think the red console table would look fabulous in my room, and I have to find a source for those cool ottomans, and the curtains are to die for, even though I'm not generally a curtain fan!
