What's new at Ikea right now? A question we ask ourselves at least once a week at least. So we thought, why not share our fave picks, we spend so long looking at all the new lovely launches might as well turn our procrastination into something productive (joking... kind of)? 

Most Ikea stores have reopened now, but have you seen the queues? No, thank you. So we are still ordering all our Ikea essentials online and here is what is in our team's baskets from the New In section right now...

1. Soften up your bedding with neutral cushions

Heddamaria striped cushion cover | £6
Mixing neutrals is so in at the moment, it's the perfect soft summer look for a bedroom. These cushion covers look so lovely paired with white bedding but would also be a nice living room update too. View Deal

2. Pick out some new bedding

Vattenfrane quilt cover and pillow cases | From £12
Soft purples are big at the moment, probably because they add colour but are still pretty close to a neutral so are never going to look too bold in a space. Tie-dye has made a back comeback this year too and is a the perfect summer pattern for a quick bedroom update. View Deal

3. Add a cute Ikea pegboard to your kitchen

Svensas peg board | £10
Yasss! Ikea has started making pegboards! It's so cute too, it would look nice in any room, but we do think it's a great addition to a kitchen. You could pop a to do list on it, or a menu or just a quote that you love. View Deal

4. Create texture with natural material

Vallmofron plant pot | £13
Oh what we would do to be sat on that step in the sun, donning a straw hat. There has been a massive trend this summer for that sunny, Mediterranean look (probably because we can't go on go holiday right now) and Ikea have definitely jumped on that with this new range. 

Our fave pick is this cute seagrass plant pot, which you could definitely use as storage too.  View Deal

5. Get a bargain Ikea mirror

Lindbyn Mirror | £30
This is such a bargain of a mirror! It's such a huge mirror too, by far the cheapest we found for this size. This would work in so many rooms too, but we think it would be fab as a hallway mirror. View Deal

6. Pick a cute macrame plant holder
