Mixing and matching Besta & Billy

Kate, the always centsational girl, sent me her latest Billy-Besta library. If you’ve been wary of mixing and matching your IKEA bookcases, this should allay your fears. The Billy and Besta is a match made in heaven (or Sweden). And Kate adds her unmistakable touch – brass lighting and pink backing. Gorgeous! Go check it out on her site.

    Another tip for filling those holes: Variera plastic cover thingies from the kitchen department. They come in tiny bags of 100 pieces, for €0,47, and come in black and white.
