A new collection from IKEA always gets us excited, and this new one called DEKORERA is a cool, moody selection that is perfect for right now.
‘As the holidays approach and the nights lengthen, we’re reminded of the dark, brooding portraits and still-lifes that typify the art of 17th century Dutch master painters like Rembrandt, Vermeer and Hals, full of swirling, golden light, playful domestic scenes, and shadowy corners’
Combining the colours and style of these artists with Scandinavian craftsmanship the DEKORERA collection is a winner for winter.
When a product is practical and beautiful it’s a winner in our eyes.
The Toyo Toolbox T-190 from Nook would make a lovely gift. It’s a practical piece of storage but would look great adorning any sideboard, shelf or cupboard. And toolboxes aren’t just for tools – they are excellent storage for paints, make up, jewellery, toiletries… all sorts.
This coated metal toolbox is stack-able with an attached hinged lid. Use to store tools or stationery. Made in Japan.

It would be great left in simple plain wood but there would be lots of decorative ideas and projects that could work.
Staining the wood to and alternative colour could make it sit well against other woods in the room. It would work well painted – a dark tone to make items pop, the colour of a wall to blend it in or pick a highlight colour from other accessories already in the room or pull a colour from the wall paper or patterned textiles.
