pantry swag

How big can a pantry really be?


Big enough for a built-in cleaning cabinet...


lockable liquor storage...


dry goods storage...



craft storage, recycling center, home office...


and...


a wrapping station!


Robin, Marianne, and I laid the design smackdown on this multi-functional space. Come by and check out one of the biggest pantries in the city!

sektion launch


Hey Folks! On February 2, 2015 IKEA launched its brand new kitchen range called Sektion. Almost a year prior to the launch, I was chosen as the interior designer to represent our Atlanta store at the US Service Office. Along with Kim, our Sektion sales leader, and Erin, our Visual Merchandising planner, we created a beautiful department that kitchen dreams are made of.  Here we are below sitting on the famous concrete Klippan sofa. These ladies were amazing to work with! 


While there, I collaborated with Common Store Planning to create the layout of each kitchen in our store. When I came back home, I had about 5 weeks to and create all of the IKEA roomsetting documentation, as well as all of the official installation drawings and contract documents for city permitting. Fast forward a year later and there are 19 new kitchens in our store! Wanna see? Here are the ones in the kitchens and dining department.

This one has a butler's pantry!



Next door is a mudroom that leads to the Bjorket kitchen.





I am totally in love with this Algot laundry solution. I can't wait to have a space for it.

This one has an attached laundry room which my co-worker pointed out to me is the size of someone's kitchen! We can all dream, right? :)

Are you tired yet? I know we are! Our Sektion implementation group and Com-in team are exhausted, but so proud. And you've only seen about 2/3 of the new kitchens in the store! I'll post the others soon. In the mean time, come by and check them out in person. :)
