Mastering minimalism is all about decorating with a handful of pieces that are high impact. Case in point: Ikea’s Soderhamn Sofa, whose streamlined composition earmarks it as a truly statement worthy piece. Its relatively affordable price tag is also a major draw. Pair the furnishing with a similarly-toned landing pad, and a whitewashed or gray side table, for a monochromatic yet eye-catching finish. Psst! Florals or potted greens will also go a long way.

Old meets the new in this colorfully-fueled playroom, beautifully decked for the little ones. Bright red, vintage Ikea chairs come paired with a modern children’s table and a spanning wall of equally vibrant books and art, resulting in a finish that leaves little else to be desired.

There’s nothing quite as versatile as a sheepskin. This cozy, decorative accessory becomes an essential during the colder months, ushering itself in as a mainstay of the season. Paired with a wicker seat, it immediately imparts a space with a Scandinavian-inspired touch. It also works well when set at the foot of a bed or casually draped at the end of the sofa.
