Its Here, Its Here!

Every girl (or guy) on a budgets dream catalogue is finally available! Its the IKEA 2012 catalogue! Mine is coming in the mail later this summer, but for now I am perfectly happy perusing through the online catalogue. I love how Ikea takes small spaces and packs 12 different functions into the room without making it feel overpowering. Especially since my home is on the teensy side.

Here are a couple of things I'm thinkin' about obsessed with...

 This sofa would fit perfectly in with my idea for the living room. Plus I've alway wanted a chaise lounge  + sofa combo. It looks like you could just curl up and read a book for hours. If only I had a fireplace/it was winter time... then it would be a dream come true!
This book case looks kind of blah blah blah now but over at Maillardville Manor she and her husband took the Billy bookcase (pictured below) and transformed it into this fabulous built in look alike.

 I've had my eye on this mirror for a while... It doesn't look like it, but it is almost 6.5 fit tall! I love mirrors... I sound pretty vain when I say that, but I just love how they can make your space look so much bigger.
In no way did Ikea give me anything to write this post! I just get overly excited when the new catalogue comes out and wanted to share with you guys some things that I'm thinking about. Any one have an Ikea piece that they couldn't live without? I'm a little dramatic :)
