Girls need a space of their own

We had a generous amount of built-in shelves in our last two homes. Loads of space for me to spread out my books, pictures, magazines (sooo many), inspiration board and computer. Now we needed to inject some sensible storage into to our new apartment and have the charm of built-in appearance with the flexibility to move the shelves when we move. Well, there's only one word.......... IKEA. For the verasility of being able to move the units, the finished look and of course a great price; the Liatorp Ikea bookcases and desk did the trick.

This is our spare room (ha, there is no spare room in a small space. You use it all). The shelves and desk area are all Ikea. This gives me space for my books, magazines - hidden behind the lower cabinet doors, a desk area for my laptop/iPad/Printers/ and still a large enough surface on the desk area to create a dressing table area. Add a little sofa to the room, hang a chandelier and a white shag rug and magically it becomes a full functioning space.

My Sister and I both were treated to these great mirrors.
I use mine everyday to apply my makeup.
