Name: Sylvia

Size: 1722 square feet
Years lived in: 5 years, renting

After practicing as a lawyer for fifteen years, Sylvia found her true calling at the age of forty and became a stylist. She likes to call it “wardrobe art” because her job is not only following trends but also looking for special pieces with a story to tell. She loves Africa, especially Marrakesh, where she wants to live one day. Colors, textures, hand-crafted items, and discovering mysterious things and places are her passion.

What Hacking Teaches IKEAHackers’ Jules Yap About Life

These days, I prefer weekdays to weekends when it comes to my IKEA trips. Why, you ask? Well, as if it isn’t obvious, it means less crowds and more leisurely wandering the aisles, sans pressure. What am I looking for exactly? Maybe I have a simple list of items I need for a closet makeover, but then I spot a serving bowl that would make a perfect pendant light. Or I go in for some picture frames then can’t help but notice a kitchen cart that would be the perfect bar cart. Either way, I go in seeking to check things off my list – end up spending a little extra time on each aisle – and leave feeling more inspired.

Luckily, Los Angeles-based interior designer Taylor Jacobson shared with us some insightful rays of wisdom on how to do it right the first time, so you can treat your windows with confidence.

Nothing adds life (literally and aesthetically) to a space quite like plants. And in a kitchen, plants can serve a double purpose, because if you choose to grow herbs, you can look at them and eat them, too. You may think that having a teeny-tiny kitchen means no room to grow things, but that’s where you’d be wrong. If you’ve got the light, we’ve got nine ideas for ways you can find the space.
