In episode 403 of the IKEA Home Tour Series, The Squad heads to Philadelphia to help Julia bring an element of Zen to her outdated and cluttered bedroom decor.

As an aspiring U.S. National rower, Julia needs a bedroom sanctuary to help her recuperate after a long workout and to prepare her body for the upcoming rigors of training and competition. In addition, her full-time job as a clinical scientist leaves her with little spare time, so having calming bedroom colors & decor for maximizing recuperation is key. Lastly, as a cat-mom, pet furniture will also need to be incorporated into this bedroom oasis to ensure that her feline has a perfect place for a cat nap.

To start, the IKEA Home Tour Squad created a custom PAX wardrobe that gives Julia a space to hang her clothers and doors that allow her to hide everything away. For additional storage, they added the MALM 2-drawer chest as a storage nightstand. For Julia’s bay window decor, The Squad layered FJÄDERKLINT textured linen curtains with sheers to allow warm natural light in while coupling a STRANDMON wing chair and ottoman. They also added a BAROMETER floor/reading lamp to give Julia an area to kick back and relax after a long workout or workday. The team also added a cozy LURVIG cat bed to help further ensure a rejuvenating night’s sleep for her feline friend.
