It's only January I know, but here in the PNW, I can sense an energy and excitement of springtime from the fact that a heap of our spring blooms never went into dormant stage resulting in glimpses of Camellias and Rhododendrums and a warm welcome of the latest arrivals at IKEA to my inbox. Bringing with it, a lighter, fresher colour palette that hints a closeness to nature we miss in the winter months so much. And needing all the hope we can right now, IKEA fans should be inspired by a collection of clean lines with natural fibres like birch, bamboo and rattan for spring. All coming this February. Let's take a look! 1. SINARP/HASSLARP Kitchen Fronts One thing I've always liked about IKEA's kitchen is the easy swap out one can make to the kitchen fronts.
