Saturated Colors at Ikea

Entrance to marketplace at Ikea store in Atlantic Station - City of Atlanta
If you have any doubts about the popularity of deep, rich, saturated colors in home decor,  you only need to stop by any Ikea store to set you straight.

I travel to our local Ikea story in Atlantic Station (City of Atlanta) about once very 4-6 weeks to pick up a twenty accent pillow insert supply for my furniture. At $6.99 and available in 20X20 or lumbar/rectangular size, they are the best deal available. My upholsterers love them because they are tightly bound on the edges and do not shed feathers  (did I mention that they are 95% feather - 5% down) and are easy to work with.

This week as I arrived at the Ikea store and planned my usual mad dash to the pillow section and out the door, I got distracted by the display above with its bright saturated colors and patterns. With my trusty camera, I thought I would take a leisurely stroll and see what I was missing on most of my visits.
Friends of ours used Ikea cabinetry in their South Carolina vacation home. I had not realized how many beautiful options Ikea provided for kitchen cabinetry and loved the design and deep colors of this settings. 
Colorful accent pillow covers (many sized for those great inserts I mentioned above) are available to glam up any setting. 
Bedding and accessory choices for young and old - loved the green and purple combination.
I thought the one of the left would work well with the series of Art Deco blogs I have recently posted - here is one of the blogs.
What a great emerald and red setting - love this grouping.
These whimsical chairs were in the outdoor section - in multiple colors - I can see them indoors as well.
Even shower curtains can make the space!
Loved this little table-scape / mini-bar!

After getting excited about all of these great finds - none of which I needed but loved looking at - I did eventually end up in the "accent pillow" section and purchased my 20 pillows.  It was a nice visit to Ikea!
