For Ikea's latest collection SVÄRTAN [collaboration]
I've always overlooked dark coloured furnishings and have always been drawn to anything that will brighten a room.. light woods, always anything white, dried flowers and a little green. But when it comes to decorating a unisex apartment, blacks and darker tones just seem to balance it all out - making everything a little cooler, and adding an extra bit of grunge in the sleekest way possible. IKEA recently collaborated with Martin Bergström, and created a limited edition collection; "SVÄRTAN" (aka BLACK). Inspired by and exploring urban landscapes; of India, a modern interpretation. All seen through it's textured decorative bowls, linen, rugs and dark colour palette - specifically only having a focus on black's, white's and greys. We've added a few of these into the apartment on the weekend, which tied a little in a little better than we thought, with everything else.
