Mixing Ikea with Antiques // Visit this Parisian apartment

How does an Ikea art director turned stylist decorate his Parisian apartment? With comfort and flexibility in mind.  Hans Blomquist shares his ideas and beliefs in Ikea's Live Magazine.

Pay attention to how you use your space.
‘Not just for big renovation jobs but little, everyday things that matter, like putting a table and chairs where the sun shines in the morning so you can breakfast there.’

-Hans Blomquist

 For optimal storage and functionality he chose Ikea cabinetry. He used drawers mostly for the bottom cupboards because "they hold so much stuff."

Mixing different natural elements creates warmth in a home. Linen hand towels, butcher block wood countertops, stainless hardware, real flowers and plants...brings life to a home.

Mix-and-match chairs are so easy to add as guests pop in. The beauty is in the imperfection. Totally agreed!
