My daybed update

Sponsored post:

I love how small updates can make a big impact. Recently I've grown a little tired of the original IKEA cover in pale grey on our Söderhamn chaise longue (in the window nook), plus it was starting to look, well, a bit manky (think foot marks, splashes of hot chocolate, you name it!). So earlier this week I swapped it for a new Bemz Loose Fit Urban slipcover in Rosendal Pure washed Linen - Medium Grey and I'm soooo happy with the result! Not only does it feel extra cosy (I love the darker colour!) it also matches the rest of my sitting room - perfect! 

I already had the Söderhamn chaise longue with a cover, but if you're ordering a new one from IKEA you can buy one without the cover for less and then add the Bemz cover at home (it's so easy to put on!). A quick side-note: I bought the baby's breath wreath at a flower shop in town back in December - it's been in the hall for ages but I think I might just have found a new spot for it, what do you think?

You may remember the touch of chestnut from my bedroom make-over. I think the 40 x 60 cushion in Malmen velvet chestnut adds a lovely warm touch to the window nook too. I love the exposed seams and relaxed look of the Loose Fit Urban - it's what drew me to this style. 

In this last pic you can catch a glimpse of my Chinese Money plant (I love the shape of the leaves!) and my book The Scandinavian Home (not that I sit and read my own book....but I do like to dip and out for inspiration, press interviews etc). After all - there's no such thing as a cosy corner without plants and books, don't you agree?!

Aaaaah, so pleased with it! If anyone's looking for me I'll be cosying up here for the rest of the day!

Have a cosy day!

This post is brought to you in collaboration with Bemz, however all words are my own and I only ever work with brands I love and think you will too.


  1. Thanks so much for the discount. I love the colour of the chaise and the pillows - and think that Bemz is such a wonderful idea. I am planning to cover the Ikea Vimle sectional in Zarazoga Velvet to in either charcoal or zinc to give some high contrast in my Scandi-modern home. Thanks for all the inspiration your site provides; I love reading your posts.

    1. That sounds perfect! Definitely go for that idea! Yay!

  2. I looked at the Söderhamn at Ikea but do not like the little feet showing, but love the style. So I can order a cover that would cover the feet, or is that only on the chaise?

    1. Yes! I did that in my sitting room (you can click through from this post or search ‘my sitting room bemz’ smx You’ll see my Söderhamn with a Bemz urban loose fit cover which covers the legs! So happy with it.

  3. Awesome awesome awesome!!! Only you can bring the look, Niki. Perfect! The fabric looks ultimately soft and the products are excellent, Niki. I ordered a grey with white fabric. :)

  4. What a beautiful spot! I love the light over your daybed. Can you tell me where it is from?
