A sneak preview of IKEA’s 2016 catalog

August is the month for all IKEA fans, as a new catalog is released in this month. This week I got a promotional mail from Ikea.at, the Austrian branch of the Swedish furniture gigant, and I had a preview of the online catalog. I admit turning pages of the paper catalog is a special feeling, specially when looking for inspirations and ideas how to make your home your own special place. Nevertheless, the online catalog does have some nice feature (as you don’t have to wait the postman to bring you the paper catalog). Here’s some of my highlights I’d like at home.

A trip down the memory lane to the sea

This was the first summer in a long time when I didn’t go to the seaside for at least a day. Considering I spent more than 3 years living on the coast, and enjoying the salty air, I might think I wouldn’t miss it, but I do. A trip down the memory lane brought some nice memories of swimming in the cool sea, walking down the promenade or simply enjoying sunsets at the beach. We only have about 46 km of the coastline, but we do have some beautiful spots along that line.
