Sunset Beach, NC Beach House Living Room

This beach house in Sunset Beach, North Carolina consists of one large room with 4 bedrooms. For the living room furnishings I chose IKEA's Ektorp sofas. The white slip covers can be washed, or replaced for pennies. This is a rental property, so that's important. Blue, white and pops of bright color made for a cheery space.

Yikes! Sorry I didn't see this message until now. I've been in the midst of closing down by business in Grosse Pointe and moving back to the East Coast. I hope your project turned out beautifully. I like this fabric!

Yes, it's from IKEA. I can't remember the name of the collection - Laktorp? I lined the boxes with fabric and placed found shells, etc... inside. I filled in with more shells from a local store. You can do the same thing with all kinds of collectibles. Thanks for the question!

Where can I buy the slip covers?

Hi! Thanks for your question. The slipcover is from IKEA's Ektorp collection. I think the sofa length is about $35.00. But you have to buy the sofa to fit! :-) Fortunately, the Ektorp runs about $300. I love a white, washable slipcover. You can add (a little) bleach, pre-treatments, etc.. Dry them a little and put them back on the sofa when they're slightly wet. They won't shrink so much and they won't need ironing.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Hanging a series of similar works in matching frames works well if you have a large wall and small artwork.
