Is my house an Ikea showroom?

I really hope not!!

But then I thought, what is from Ikea?

So another photo essay it is.

PS none of the links are affiliate, but to help you should you want to source anything.  I’ve tried to link to Australia’s Ikea, as a more factual reference to the prices.

    • Bed – Malm Queen Bed in Dark brown, which I don’t think is a colour they still do
I think my bedhead isn't totally centred on the wall, oh well.

Storage underneath and my perfect bedside height
    • Box for elevating the fan (stolen from the parent’s house!) – the cute Hol – I love that lattice pattern and it’s stood up to many years of service!

I love the lattice pattern, and it’s strudily built!
    • Bedroom curtains – Vivan for the sheers (not shown below), and Sanela is a red velvet (which is out of stock, and the tops of mine are different to this new model), all on the awesome Kvartal triple track system

More colourful than a hotel room.
    • Smalls storage – Skubb boxes, but bought years ago to fit in a wardrobe hanger thing

On the floor of my wardrobe live my ‘smalls’
    • Lighting – the kitchen has discontinued and the living room has the PS Maskros

      • Kitchen table – I bought this second hand from the old tenant, but it’s a Sanfrid table top and Adils legs (I think?)

    • Semi-armchairs – found in a thrift store, so I forgot they were Ikea’s Nils
Doesn't everyone have one of these?

    • Salvaged trolley – from the kerb! But the real deal is the Bekvam
    • Magnetic notice board – sort of like the Spontan, but different

The trolley was a kerbside find! The noticeboard was not
    • Lamp in the dining area
A thrift store find, but from Ikea orginially

    • Lamp in the living area – I swear everyone has one of these, Dudero, it’s $15!! (Maybe it’s the cool name? Shown in the Nils chair photo above)
    • Second hand entertainment cabinet – the Besta, didn’t realise he was Ikea til someone told me (can be seen in the lighting picture above)
    • Side tables/stools – love the double duty Marius, and the limited edition teal colour of them

Stool or side table, it works double duty for only $6!
    • Floating shelves in the entry way – those little Lack’s

    • Bathroom bin – love the shiny Rundel (til it’s not of course!)

So shiny and easy to use!
    • Kitchen bin – so cheap at $3, you can’t go past Fniss (just why did I buy the white one?)

Kitchen bin – with no wet waste, being unlidded doesn’t matter.
    • Stationary storage set of nine drawers

    • Blue platters

Just the shade is from Ikea

What do you think? Do I have more than the average (keeping in mind, I was a ‘poor student’ until 2009)?

I’m pretty happy with the smattering of things I have, but I do wonder at what cost to societies and the environment where these things might have been made.
