Why not start autumn with tweaking how you start your day? Say, to waking up in the comfortable embrace of fresh bed linen, by a stylish bedside lamp, with sunlight softened by a new blind? A good morning, indeed.
A good day starts with a good night’s sleep. On that note, IKEA has a wide range of duvets and pillows to keep your bedroom temperature just right – and the stylish, crisp bed linen to match your beauty sleep.
Creating a calm for the night has a lot to do with minimising distractions. Curtains, colour scheme, and duvet and pillow thickness are all easy ways to adjust light, mood and temperature for a good night’s sleep.
Getting back to routines after summer can involve a few hurdles. A good way to ease the transition is to prep your workspace with stylish organisers and matching items to keep times, tools and tasks in check (and maybe add a bit of colour, too).
Beyond being the heart of your home, a kitchen table makes for a great makeshift workspace. A desk pad, a clamp spot and task-holding magazine files create an on-and-off space that’s easily stowed away in time for dinner.
Schoolwork and (a little bit of) screen time is all good – but there’s something special about handing children a lump of modelling dough and see where creativity takes them. An artful cityscape? A monster contest? Or, where indeed?
Lunch in a box – what to do without it? Beyond keeping your meal fresh and protected, complementing with smaller containers is an easy way to add a salad, dessert, or condiments on the side. Bon appétit!
Anyone with too much hallway space, raise your hand. Jokes aside, the key to smooth morning traffic is spelled vertical storage. Luckily, IKEA has shoe racks (MURVEL organisers double their capacity) and boxes to stack and organise your things, floor to ceiling.
A school day can be a long ordeal, and hunger can come creeping more than once. To be on the safe side, it can be a good idea to put a snack or two, and a water bottle, along with the homework in your child’s backpack.
