FAVORITE PHOTOS FROM IKEA FAMILY MAGAZINE



Happy Monday! I have a couple of photos to share with you today from our spread for Ikea Family Magazine, which went live a few weeks ago. In case you'd forgotten (how could you!), this was the project we photographed over the summer in our old place just before moving out to BK. It's a part of the current issue on stands now, and the second part of our spread will be part of the next issue, on stands in the spring. If you happen to have a subscription, you've probably already found me in your mailbox. Maybe I'm on your dinner table as we speak!? Just please tell me you didn't leave me in your bathroom. :)


Here is the initial spread. (The second part will be published in the spring issue, keep ya eyes out!) Ikea just sent over a folder of photos that weren't used in either of the spreads (cream cheese) and I figured I'd share, 'cause what else is a blog for, anyway? (No, really. Enlighten me.)

Here they be, stinkers!


Huck's old closet bedroom with an Ikea sprucing.


They asked me if I had any hobbies they could photograph me doing and I said, uh,  . . . shopping online? 


My shoes say hello. :)


Aside from their holiday goods + Picardie-style French glass tumblers, the kids' toys + books section at Ikea is always on our must-raid list. Huck's enthusiasm up there is not put on. That's some pure King Elk joy. ;) 


Brandon!


My boys are cutie tooties. Have a wonderful week!

  1. You have such a wonderful space!

    Of everything, I'm probably the most obsessed with your closet (lol).
    Mine is a similar size/shape, and I've never been a fan because everything gets thrown in, but this looks so perfect with the doors taken off, the shelving, and the bins. Closet inspiration ftw! ;)

  4. Natalie, these photos are completely gorgeous!! I love the one of you & Brandon sitting at the dinner table & the one of Huck sitting with his back to the flag especially. I know that you have moved now but you seem to create a fabulous home that looks lived in, happy & stylish wherever you are. And can I just say that I love seeing photos of you & Huck together, you always look at him with such love, it is written all over your face. How cool to be in the Ikea catalogue, yay!!

  22. I love seeing any glimpse of your space- totally goregeous.
    the wall hanging above your bed in these photos (and I think in your dining room now?) -- where did you get that? I would love to find or make something similar for my soon to be nursery :-)
