IKEA Goes Coastal Cool For Spring
It's an age-old style, but IKEA has managed to infuse nautical-inspired décor with a fresh, modern feeling for spring and summer. The Scandinavian brand's new coastal-themed collection includes seaside motifs like nautical knots, coordinates, and lively ocean creatures like crabs and lobsters. There's even a wood-plank print fabric ($7/yd.), which resembles a weathered old waterfront deck. We're loving the masculinity of the latitude- and longitude-print duvet and pillowcases ($40). The fish apron ($10) and seafood trays ($6) would make the perfect hostess gift for a summer seafood boil; we're thinking about stocking up!
