Yvestown Rocks IKEA

Speaking of my dear friend Yvonne earlier (oh she’s such a good, good girl to me), suddenly gave me the urge to pay her lovely blog a visit and wow, oh wow! What did I find? Great news for Yvonne! She is now blogging over at the IKEA Live website and I’m so proud of her because she’s definitely fit for the job – Yvonne loves IKEA yet her house never ever looks like a copy of their catalog.


I love that about her decorating style, she can take something from IKEA and use it in a whole new way – add to it, take something off, paint it a funky color, customize it somehow, someway and BAM! it’s perfectly perfect in Yvonne’s special way. I want to tell Yvonne that I’m proud of her and love that she is being recognized for her hard work as a blogger, stylist and all around great lady who has inspired me so much over the years.

Congrats Yvonne on the IKEA gig! Yvestown Rocks IKEA and they will be better for it, yay! Go, girl!

    I absolutely love Ikea! Half of our house is Ikea. I am so jealous though! I just don’t have that artistic bone in my body to see something completely different in a piece of furniture!!! Love it!

    Our apartment is full of Ikea furniture, but we always make a point of personalizing what we buy to make it our own and reflective out our taste.
