IKEA Designed a Home and It's on a Sydney Ferry!

Lauren Powell

It’s zero surprise that we love IKEA. We're forever trying to replicate the store's chicest bedrooms and most stylish kitchens of all time, and are constantly getting our DIY on attempting these genius Swedish home hacks, so you can imagine our excitement when we found out the design giant has built a home on a ferry that will cruise Sydney Harbour. Could there be anything greater? We don’t think so.

In a world first, IKEA has converted an iconic Sydney ferry into a floating home. “The Harbour Home” includes sleeping quarters, dining and living areas, and an outdoor space—not to mention arguably the most incredible water views of all time. Move over Kirribilli House.

The idea was born from the results from the third annual IKEA Life at Home Report, which found one in three believe that a home goes beyond four walls, and 36 percent say the surrounding neighbourhood is an extension to their home.

The best part? It could be your ultimate dream house—for one night only. IKEA is giving two people the chance to experience the coolest home and call one of the most iconic neighbourhoods in the world their very own. How? Simple. Just share a snapshot or video to illustrate what you love most about your home life with the affordable mega-retailer. (Visit the brand's Facebook page for details on how to enter.) A converted ferry with a Swedish interior on Sydney Harbour? Count us in.
