The Ikea 2015 catalog is set to come out soon.  The digital version will be available for download starting June 24.  They will also introduce a catalog app for smartphones and tablets where you can scan a product in the catalog and virtually see how an item will look in your home.  Ikea is one of my go to stores for trendy, affordable home decor.  I wanted to give you a sneak preview of what to look forward to.

Organizing Cords with Washi Tape

With all the electronic devices in our home, it's hard to keep up with the cords.  You see a cord on the counter and kind of know what device it goes to but sometimes you don't know until you try it.  A lot of the plugs are similar.  My husband's phone cord looks a lot like my daughter's tablet cord.  No more guessing now.

This is where we started, a tangled mess of cords.  Many of them were on the kitchen counter or stuffed in a drawer.

I pulled out my washi tape and got to labeling.  

I simply wrapped a piece of tape around the cords and labeled them with a Sharpie.

Now when we grab a cord, we know if it's really the one we need.

What do you use to organize your electronic cords?

Floor Mirrors

I love the look of a leaning floor mirror.  It adds a design element to the room but also bounces the light across the room.  This deflected light makes the room appear larger and brighter.  It adds depth and dimension.

Here are a few affordable options I found.
