I know I have written about our lovely loft and it's lack of closet-space or storage before, so I have been on the search for a linen cabinet to house our towels and sheets in style. For the life of me, I cannot remember which of the hundreds of home decor blog posts I found this on last night, but it immediately caught my eye and I drug the photo to my laptop's desktop for later review.

Isn't it pretty?
So I set out to do an extensive google search for a place to purchase a similar gem and luck was on my side. I typed in "Yellow Linen Cabinet" and to my surprise the very first thing to pop up was this very cabinet at Ikea!
I present to you the HEMNES Linen Cabinet in yellow:
Wait! It gets better... My wonderful husband, Dave, is working in the burbs at a client this week right across the street from an Ikea and he offered to pick it up for me/us tonight! Isn't he great ;-) And due to Ikea's super cool online feature, I was actually able to check for him if the item was in stock at our store and exactly how many they had left (7). Uber-convenient when it's midnight and you are online shopping. I can't wait to see it.
The room I am putting it in, our guest bedroom/office, is currently covered in a not-so-subtle bird theme in browns and aqua blues/greens, so I think this will add a nice "pop" of sunshine. I also am thinking that I might change out the hardware and buy some cute drawer knobs at anthropologie just to spice it up a bit.
So far I like this Granita Knob in teal:
And this Rosy Knob in kelly green or aqua:
I'll see how the cabinet looks when it gets home tonight and go from there!
