On Monday, I made a little trip to Ikea with Ella and my friend Clara. I needed to buy some standard stuff, you always buy when you go Ikea, but I was also curious to see the new BRÅKIG Collection in the flesh, developed in collaboration with ArtRebels. I had seen the collection so often on blogs and on Instagram already, that I thought I might get a bit fed with it. Nevertheless, I love the traditional Japanese print that Ikea has used for the collection and the colours are really pretty. I ended up buying two bowls and a big tray. Here are a couple of pictures of how I am using the bowls.
After a visit to the market yesterday morning, I planted some Muscari in one of the bowls.
I will post some pictures when the blooms are starting to show.
Here are a couple of tips if you want to do the same at home:
TIP n°1: If you plant that kind of bulbs in a bowl like that, without a hole underneath, you should not water it too much, otherwise the plants wont last very long.
TIP n°2: If you have a balcony or a garden, you can replant the bulbs outside in the spring.
TIP n°3: You can fit about 10 small bulbs and 3 to 5 big ones in a BRÅKIG bowl. You could for instance try with some hyacinths or daffodils.
So what about you? Do you like the BRÅKIG Collection? Have you bought something, or are you planning to buy something from it? and what will you use it for?
I wish you a great day!
A set of two bowls cost 8.99 € and the big tray (Ø 56 cm) 9.99 € In Germany.
